Product Spotlight: Toro Dingo TX 1000 Compact Utility Loader (Video)
TX1000: THE CATEGORY DEFINING COMPACT UTILITY LOADER The TX1000 is the closest thing in our inventory to an Iron Man suit: First of all, It's VERY red. But it's also compact, powerful as all get out, ridiculously versatile...and: YOU WILL LOOK GREAT IN IT. The 1,000 lb. rated operating capacity, smaller frame / lighter footprint makes the TX 1000 a go-to alternative to larger skid steer loaders and other multi-purpose machines. It can squeeze into very tight places — the 33.7-inch narrow track model passes through 36" garden doors or gates. It's also easy on the terrain: that same narrow track model (model 22327) applies 5.4 psi, and the 41" wide track (model 22328) offers up only 3.6 psi! Now that's some first class creepin'!
REACH OUT! With an 81" hinge-pin height, you can easily clear the side of 30-yard dumpsters or one-ton trucks with this machine. The combination of major-league load capacity, max reach, and minimal footprint makes this an easy choice for many jobs and location types. Another key benefit is the vertical path of the lift arms, which allows for more efficient vertical applications, such as augering or concrete breaking. Check out the reach and ease of operation in this video we made about the Top 6 Reasons People Love The TX1000.
SUPER POWERED The TX 1000 features a Kubota D1305 diesel — a Tier-4 compliant engine that offers high torque, with the wide-track model able to travel up to 4.7 mph in forward and reverse. Easy engine access and a belt-free design minimizes maintenance.
GO WHERE YOU WANNA GO The Toro TX 1000 features their HIGH DRIVE track system, with Kevlar® (or steel-reinforced) tracks to ensure maximum strength and durability. As noted, this is a powerful transport system that leaves a light footprint. It gets the grip you need any jobsite terrain, even sand and loose gravel, and it gives you maximum maneuverability on uneven surfaces. Hey, let's face it: he TX1000 is a tank! And...it's easy to operate: The Toro TX 1000 provides intuitive operation that’s all but effortless for the operator, so even when you're working all day long, you won't have your hands and arms cramping up. Using the joystick, you can curl, dump or float the bucket while raising or lowering the loader arms — all with just one hand. The traction-drive joystick also offers single-hand control. There's an auxiliary foot control as well, which enables the operator to maintain hydraulic flow to attachments, and keeps hands free to manage ground speed and attachment positioning. The operating platform has thigh and hip padding and offers an unimpeded line of sight to the attachment plate, and the jobsite. Honestly, it can be fun to work on these machines!
DO WHAT YOU WANNA DO! Toro has a great little mini-series on their TX1000 site of "What Would You Lift?" videos. But we're here to remind you that lifting is only a small part of the story. With its potent (3000psi) hydraulic power, this machine is ready to tackle whatever work you want to get attached to: carrying forks, augering, earth moving, trenching, leveling, soil cultivation, tilling, box raking, and lifting & moving almost anything with the multi-purpose tool and its "scarifier teeth." - Nope, we're not making this up!
