The company says the new machine can lift more than any CUL in the category.­­­

“We are extremely excited for the Dingo TX 1000 to increase the jobsite productivity,” explains Sean O’Halloran, marketing manager for The Toro Company. “We listened to what was important to operators of compact utility loaders, and our end result is a highly-engineered, feature-rich machine that is the leader in a number of specifications across the product class.”

The Toro-exclusive traction control design, thigh and hip padding on the operator station, and an auxiliary foot control that lets the operator focus on ground speed and attachment positioning, are designed for comport and productivity. The Dingo is powered by a Kubota 1305 liquid-cooled, diesel engine, with 24 gross hp at 2,600 rpm with increased displacement and high torque – giving the TX 1000 maximum power.
