BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (Sept. 25, 2006) The Toro Company has introduced the TX Platform, a new ride-on attachment for tracked Toro® Dingo® compact utility loaders. Quickly and easily bolted on to Toro Dingo TX 420, TX 425 Wide Track, and TX 525 Wide Track diesel models, the platform helps decrease operator fatigue and increase comfort, especially in applications requiring extensive hauling or covering substantial distances.
The TX Platform helps achieve a safe, smooth ride three ways. First, it pivots up and down to float with uneven terrain, providing a stable and level platform for the operator. Second, a rubber pad at its hinge point reduces transmission of machine vibration to the user. Lastly, the platform is accompanied by a loader control reference bar (handlebar) that can be mounted to the dash for added operator safety.
The TX Platform is a great yet simple way for operators to minimize walking when hauling materials or just maneuvering their compact utility loader, says Greg Lawrence, marketing product manager for the Toro Dingo product line. That translates into added comfort and improved productivity on any job.
Constructed of heavy-duty steel, the platform measures 29 inches wide, operates 5 inches above the ground and weighs 94 pounds. When not in use, it easily folds up and stores against the machine in a locked position.
The Toro TX Platform is one of more than 35 attachments that make the Toro Dingo system versatile enough to meet the needs of virtually any contractor looking to complete work more productively and profitably by maximizing manpower, minimizing hand labor, and finishing jobs faster. Other attachments include an auger, trencher, trench filler, vibratory plow, hydraulic breaker, backhoe, leveler, tiller, cultivator, hydraulic blade, power box rake, adjustable forks. tree forks, two-stage snow thrower, rotary broom, several sizes of buckets, and more.
