BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Toro will showcase its new electric Ultra BuggyTM, first introduced at World of Concrete, and Dingo® TX 1300, Dingo TX 700 and new Maxi SneakerTM at Equip Expo in Louisville, Kentucky, October 19 – 21. Show attendees can locate the new electric Ultra Buggy at the indoor Toro booth (7148), while the Dingo TX 1300, Dingo TX 700 and Maxi Sneaker will be located in the outdoor Toro booth (7600D), with the Dingo units available for demo.
“We’re excited to have these innovative earthmoving and material handling products onsite for landscape contractor professionals to experience and demo firsthand,” says Kyle Cartwright, marketing manager at Toro. “The electric Ultra Buggy gives a new edge to urban projects with its maneuverability and emission-free operation — while the Dingo TX 1300 and Dingo TX 700 offer simple, powerful operations to improve productivity and efficiency on landscape and hardscape jobs. Plus, the new Maxi Sneaker 370 is going to make trenching, boring or plowing a breeze. These are remarkable products for landscape crews looking to get more done in less time.”
Electric Ultra Buggy™
The electric Ultra Buggy is powered by Toro’s HyperCell™ battery technology, adding yet another dynamic piece of battery-powered equipment to Toro’s growing resume and is available for shipping early Winter 2022. Designed for indoor use, landscape contractors who operate in tight or semi-enclosed urban areas will find the new, zero engine exhaust emissions electric Ultra Buggy beneficial on the job site. The proprietary HyperCell battery system delivers up to eight hours of continuous run time and charges using a standard 120V wall outlet. The compact design allows the electric Ultra Buggy to fit through a 3-ft door with a crash bar and reach areas of the jobsite that larger machinery cannot.
Built to be versatile and agile, it’s equipped with a fold-up platform so operators can choose to stand on or walk behind the unit. The electric Ultra Buggy’s durable design is ready to haul up to 14 cu. ft. or 2,500 lbs. of material in a rugged polyethylene tub or an optional a steel tub. Additionally, the mounted directional and dump switches ensure continuous movement while operating the machine.
Dingo® TX 1300
The new Dingo TX 1300 is a compact utility loader that prioritizes comfort. It’s ideal for landscape, hardscape and tree care jobs, though its versatility allows it to be used for much more. Dingo compact utility loaders are an extremely functional class of machinery.
The Dingo TX 1300 features an exclusive INTELESCOPE® loader arm with SmartLoad technology, giving the operator an additional 26 inches of reach. An impressive hinge-pin height of 109 inches allows for loads to be lifted up and over the side of a dumpster or truck, another major convenience. Features like the thumb-operated hydraulic controls make it easy for operators to pick, place and dump loads all day long. The simplified controls, along with an enlarged operator platform, creates a better overall operator experience. It works efficiently, too, with a 1,300 pound rated operating capacity (with arms retracted).
Dingo® TX 700
The Toro Dingo TX 700 is a workhorse of a machine, providing remarkable power in a compact package. Introduced at the 2021 ARA Show, The Dingo TX 700 adds to Toro’s already-extensive Dingo lineup and will be available in 2023. Due to the Dingo TX 700’s small size and powerful punch, it’s the ideal machine for contractors working within the confines of tight spaces. It packs 700 pounds of rated operating capacity into its small footprint, bringing Toro-level power to everything it touches.
It's easy on turf, too. 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. The system features a less aggressive tread pattern that’s gentle on turf and minimizes damage, perfect for keeping pristine lawns intact. It’s also compatible with dozens of attachments, meaning the machine can be used for a wide range of jobs. Attachments include multiple types of buckets, adjustable forks, a grapple, leveler, utility blade, and more.
Maxi Sneaker™ 370
The new Toro Maxi Sneaker 370 Vibratory Plow delivers powerful plowing in a maneuverable package. Designed to improve operator experience while providing optimal performance, the new Maxi Sneaker features a digital display for easier operator interface, eliminating manual gauges.
Delivering robust and consistent power when trenching, boring or plowing, it’s equipped with a metal hood and rugged pivot point for longstanding durability and reliability. A foldable ROPS offers easier transport, while a re-aligned axel lets the new Maxi Sneaker turn on a tight radius.
It comes standard with the vibratory plow attachment and is available in six different tire configurations — the standard 23” or optional 26”, narrow, standard, or wide configurations. The optional Hydra-Borer, high rotational torque attachment provides smooth boring and back reaming through difficult soil conditions beneath driveways and walkways. An optional reel carrier is also available.
Equip Expo attendees will be able to experience the flexibility and capability of all these machines in person and have full access to experienced Toro team members.
