At this year’s GIE+EXPO, Toro brought out the new Dingo TXL 2000, which is the latest model in the company’s compact utility loader (CUL) equipment category.

This model, the company says, features telescoping arms to allow the TXL 2000 to reach over obstacles, dig below grade and extend the operator’s working range.

Because of the telescoping loader arm technology, Toro says operators can perform a number of tasks previously unachievable with this class of equipment. Fully extended, the boom has a hinge pin height of just over 10 feet.

Toro says the TXL 2000 is also the most powerful CUL on the market today with a rated operating capacity of up to 2,000 pounds. The company says the Dingo TXL 2000 offers all the benefits of the CUL class, including increased visibility and access when compared to larger equipment classes with a sit-in cab.

Providing operators with 360-degree visibility by readjusting their body on the operator platform, Toro says the compact size of the TXL 2000 allows it to reach areas where larger equipment cannot. Toro adds that the controls mimic previous Dingo designs by being intuitive and easy-to-use.

“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,” says Kyle Cartwright, associate marketing manager at Toro. “This machine sets a new standard for the compact utility loader equipment class.”

Toro says the TXL 2000 is equipped with a standard skid-steer loader attachment mount and is compatible with most standard skid-steer attachments.

The company says it now offers nine Dingo models ranging from entry-level wheeled models.

Toro also introduced a polyethylene drum option for their UltraMix mortar mixer line.

Toro says this new drum material was integrated primarily to maximize drum durability and simplify cleaning. The company says the drum is available in two sizes—6 cubic feet and 8 cubic feet— and is made from a high-density, 1/2 -inch thick, polyethylene resin that Toro says provides an extremely durable solution for mixing applications.

Toro says the UltraMix lineup delivers the ultimate in mixing performance due to the exclusive symmetrical drum and patented paddle configuration. The company says the design boasts more paddle and drum contact with the mortar, and the Toro-exclusive paddle design moves mix horizontally and in a circular motion. The company adds that the mixer is powered by a Kohler engine.

“What we’ve done is take a great product in the Toro UltraMix and made adjustments to enhance its utility for landscaping and hardscaping crews,” says Kaitlyn Wearn, Toro marketing associate. “The integration of the new polyethylene drum provides an ideal balance between durability and portability that professionals will really appreciate.”

Along with producing this mortar blend, Toro says the UltraMix line features rugged and reliable components that are designed with durability in mind.

Toro says the reinforced paddle rubber features two layers of woven fabric for added strength, which they say minimizes tearing and increases overall paddle life.

Toro says the UltraMix line is also equipped with solid steel dump handles and a high-strength telescoping axle, which the company says allows the unit to easily pass through a door or gate opening.
