The latest and largest Dingo in the Toro lineup boasts innovative telescoping loader arms and a 2-ton rated operating capacity.

The new compact utility loader (CUL) consolidates the benefits of several machines into one to perform a variety of tasks on the jobsite.

Thanks to the telescoping loader arm, operators are able to perform a number of tasks previously unachievable with a CUL. For example, operators are able to backfill behind a retaining wall, dump material into the centre of a full-size dump truck or dumpster and offload both rows of a trailer from one side. Fully extended, the boom has a hinge pin height of about 3.12 metres.

In addition to featuring innovative telescoping loader arms, the TXL boasts a rated operating capacity of up to 907 kg.

The Toro Dingo TXL 2000 also offers all the benefits of the compact utility loader class, including increased visibility and access, when compared to larger equipment classes with a sit-in cab.

The TXL 2000 provides the operators 360-degree visibility by simply readjusting their body on the flexible, suspended operator platform. As well, this new Dingo is more compact than other classes of earthmoving equipment, allowing it to reach areas that larger equipment cannot reach.

With inspiration from previous Toro Dingo designs, the controls are intuitive and easy-to-use, allowing operators of all skill levels to operate the machine.

“The TXL 2000 strikes a perfect balance of unprecedented reach, power and maneuverability for a compact utility loader, and we believe it’s going to be a game changer for the construction, landscaping, earthmoving, utility and rental markets,” said Kyle Cartwright, associate marketing manager at Toro. “This machine sets a new standard for the compact utility loader equipment class.”

Equipped with a standard skid-steer loader attachment mount, the Dingo TXL 2000 is compatible with most standard skid-steer attachments.

With the introduction of the TXL 2000, Toro now offers nine Dingo models ranging from entry-level wheeled models like the Dingo 323 to the new machine.

Toro was the first manufacturer to offer a compact utility loader in the United States, after acquiring the rights to the Dingo, an Australian-made unit, in 1995.

The Toro Dingo TXL 2000 will be available from select Toro dealers in late 2018.
