Toro expands compact equipment lineup with two new Dingos

Toro Dingo TX 1300 branding

At The ARA Show in November, Toro launched the Dingo TX 1300 and the Dingo TX 700.

Both machines offer versatile functionality, while the 1300 adds power and the 700 provides maneuverability and a gentle footprint.

According to Toro, the new Dingo TX 1300 brings a new combination of power, reach, and convenient control to the Toro Dingo lineup. Furthermore, Toro claims that when you have a lot of material to move, the Dingo TX 1300 will provide the power to do it efficiently.

This Dingo is engineered for landscape, hardscape and tree care, though its functionality and versatility could allow for it to be used for much more.

The Dingo TX 1300 features an exclusive INTELLISCOPE® loader arm with SmartLoad technology, giving the operator an additional 26” of reach.

A hinge-pin height of 109” allows for loads to be lifted up and over the side of a dumpster or truck, another major convenience. The goal of these features is to help users reach maximum productivity. On that same note, Toro has integrated the hydraulics and loader arm functions into one thumb-operated controller for easier, more accommodating operation. One hand can be used to operate the loader arm and auxiliary attachments and the other to operate the Toro patented traction controls. This feature makes it more manageable than ever to pick, place and dump loads all day long.

“The versatility of a machine can make or break a rental decision. The Dingo TX 1300 can be used for many types of jobs and purposes, giving it an edge over other specialized machinery,” says Jay Thaker, marketing manager at Toro. “It also has a 37 hp Yanmar® Tier IV diesel engine and 1300 lbs. of rated operating capacity, proving its power and strength.”

Also, according to Toro, the pressure-relieving quick coupler system simplifies connecting attachments.

Toro’s new Dingo TX 700 is said to be a workhorse that provides extensive power in a compact package.

The company claims that it has the ability to expand labour savings beyond homeowner projects and due to its small size and powerful punch, it’s the ideal machine for both homeowners and contractors working within the confines of tight spaces.

The Dingo TX 700 packs 700 pounds of rated operating capacity into a compact footprint.

“The compact size, power, punch and flexibility of the Dingo TX 700 is bound to be a game-changer for operators,” says Jay Thaker, marketing manager at Toro. “The fact that it’s powerful yet compact, very user-friendly, and incredibly capable, increases the applications for the Dingo TX 700 on the jobsite or at home.”

Furthermore, it features Toro’s patented Dingo TX 1000 traction controls and a dedicated stand-on platform. According to Toro, even users new to operating heavy machinery will catch on quickly.

Also, it’s compatible with dozens of attachments, which means that the machine can be used for a very wide range of jobs. These attachments include multiple types of buckets, adjustable forks, a grapple, leveler, utility blade, and more.

Finally, the Dingo TX 700 is available in both narrow track and wide track configurations—the wide track option is equipped with the industry tested Camso track system. This system features a less aggressive tread pattern that’s gentle on turf, minimizing damage, which is perfect for homeowners looking to keep their pristine lawn intact.
