Toro Unveils Next Generation Dingo TX 1000

Toro’s Dingo TX 1000 TURBO.

Bloomington, Minnesota, United States: Toro set the standard when it first introduced the Dingo TX 1000, the first compact utility loader with a rated operating capacity of 1,000 pounds, in 2015. Now, Toro is redefining that standard with the introduction of its new Dingo TX 1000 TURBO. 

The Dingo TX 1000 TURBO builds off the proven success and strongest in-class performance of the original Dingo TX 1000 with a turbo-powered diesel engine and the new patent-pending Smart Power feature to maximise engine, auxiliary, and traction torque.

“When we first introduced the Dingo TX 1000, we made history in the compact utility loader market,” said Kyle Cartwright, Product Marketing Manager at Toro, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“Since that monumental introduction, we’ve worked closely with our customers to understand their needs and are excited to introduce the next iteration of the Dingo TX 1000, redesigned from the ground up to maximise strength and productivity,” added Cartwright.

Operators will feel the difference, literally. The Dingo TX 1000 TURBO’s new engine has more torque to deliver the proven productivity of the Dingo TX 1000 quicker, especially when using the trencher and auger attachments.

Toro engineers added a larger hydraulic filter, found in the Dingo TX 1300 model, for longer maintenance intervals and less down time. Available in both narrow and wide-track models, the TURBO is built to suit operator and jobsite needs.

The narrow-track model is 2,826 pounds (1,282 kilograms) and features a standard track with ‘B’ style tread. The wide-track version is 2,911 pounds (1,320 kilograms) and features a less aggressive tread pattern that’s gentle on turf and minimises damage.

Cartwright said: “The reality is the Dingo TX 1000 changed the compact utility loader game. That’s why, when we approached the design, we wanted to ensure all the beloved and trusted features remained.

“The new Dingo TX 1000 TURBO simply builds on the standard set by the original, and we’re so excited to get this new turbo-charged machine in the hands of operators.”

Like its predecessor, the Dingo TX 1000 TURBO has a rated operating capacity of 1,000 pounds. When the loader arms are at full reach the hinge pin measures an impressive 81 inches from the ground to allow the machine to easily reach over the side of dumpsters and one-ton trucks to maximise jobsite productivity.

Just like the original Dingo TX 1000, the new Dingo TX 1000 TURBO features a vertical lift loader arm design, which keeps the load closer to the machine to allow operators to lift more weight with greater confidence. Additionally, this feature increases the reach at full height to make dumping more efficient and accurate. 

Operators will feel confident knowing the new Dingo TX 1000 TURBO has the Toro-exclusive patented traction control design. Deemed the smoothest controls in the market, these controls are intuitive and effortless, providing operators with all-day productivity.

Other operator-centric features have been carried over, including thigh and hip padding on the operator station for a comfortable experience and an auxiliary foot control on the suspended platform which frees the operator’s hands to focus on ground speed and attachment positioning.

The 24.7 hp YANMAR diesel engine is engineered with a focus on vibration reduction. The result is an engine more than capable of handling the most demanding applications.

Delivering up to 4.1 miles per hour ground speeds in both forward and reverse, the new Dingo TX 1000 TURBO maximises productivity. The machine features a single diesel fuel tank (10.25 gallons) on the operator’s left-hand side and the hydraulic oil reservoir on the operator’s right-hand side for improved serviceability.

“With the introduction of TURBO, we’re also excited to share that we’ve invested in expanding production capacity across the full line, so we can continue to meet the needs of our customers,” said Cartwright.

The new Dingo TX 1000 TURBO will begin shipping this spring.
