New Diesel Model Joins Family of Toro® Dingo® Compact Utility Loaders

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (Sept. 18, 2006) The Toro Company introduces its new Dingo® TX 525 Wide Track compact utility loader that features a 25-horsepower Kubota® diesel engine. The TX 525 Wide Track is an ideal machine for contractors or rental yards looking for a utility loader that delivers more torque for increased pulling and digging force when using attachments in aggressive or rocky conditions. It joins one of the most extensive lines of compact utility loaders on the market today.


Compared to other Dingo models, the TX 525 Wide Track diesel unit offers extra torque, longer engine life, and increased hydraulic flow for enhanced performance of ground-engaging attachments. With it, landscape professionals can complete work more productively and profitably by maximizing manpower, minimizing hand labor, and finishing jobs faster. The model is compatible with Toro™s 35-plus compact utility loader attachments — making it well suited for applications such as installing irrigation systems, preparing seedbeds, material hauling and handling, constructing decks and fences, tree planting, demolishing structures, and pond building. In addition to the added power it delivers, the TX 525 represents a convenient choice for operators who currently utilize all diesel-powered equipment and prefer to expand their fleet with the same fueled machine. 


We hope our customers agree that the new TX 525 Wide Track offering is diesel done right, says Greg Lawrence, marketing product manager for the Dingo product line. It provides the highest power-to-weight ratio-and the lightese footprint- in the compact utility loader market. We”ve delivered the extra powder and durability of a diesel without sacrificing the light weight and go-almost-anywhere width that users except from a Toro Dingo loader.”


The TX 525 Wide Track model™s auxiliary hydraulics provide power in the toughest soil conditions by pumping 24 hydraulic hp to the attachment. Featuring four independent hydraulic pumps, the TX 525 Wide Track delivers 16.9 gpm of flow to each track, 13.8 gpm to the auxiliary, and 6 gpm to the loader arm. This model delivers hydraulic performance beyond its category, reveals Lawrence, and the proof is in the plumbing.


Weighing just 2127 lbs. with a standard bucket, the TX 525 Wide Track has a rated operating capacity of 553 lbs. (35% of tip capacity). Its overall length of 92 in. with bucket and width of 40.5 in. make it compact enough to work in the tightest places and easily pass through a 42 gate. Also, the 9.5 in. wide tracks on the unit distribute the weight to a mere 3.5 psi for excellent flotation in soft ground conditions.
