The Toro Company has unveiled the latest additions to its Dingo compact utility loader family, the narrow and wide track TX 427 models. Both TX 427 loaders feature a robust 27-hp Kohler engine that delivers added torque for increased pulling and digging force. These models also come standard with a heavy-duty two-stage air cleaner that offers superior dust and dirt filtration, even when the engine is working in the harshest environments.
The company says it has simplified its lineup by offering one model in either narrow or wide track design, beefed up with a more powerful engine, and increased the power-to-weight ratio for improved jobsite efficiency.
Featuring four independent hydraulic pumps, TX 427 compact utility loaders deliver 16.9 gallons per minute (gpm) of flow to each track, 11.4 gpm to the auxiliary hydraulics, and 6 gpm to the loader arm. The auxiliary hydraulics on the TX 427 models pump 19 hp flow to the attachment for increased productivity in ground-engaging applications.
Weighing just 2,006 lbs. with a standard bucket, the TX 427 narrow track loader has a rated operating capacity of 535 lbs. (35 percent of tip capacity). Its overall length of 92 inches including bucket and width of 33.7 inches allow it to work in the tightest places and easily pass through a standard 36-inch gate. Also, the 5.9 inch wide tracks on the TX 427 narrow track model distribute a mere 5.1 psi of ground pressure, so operators can get the traction they need without tearing up turf during operation.
The TX 427 wide track model weighs 2,186 lbs. with a standard bucket, and it offers the same rated operating capacity as the narrow track model at 535 lbs. (35 percent of tip capacity). With an overall length of 92 inches including bucket, this model’s width is increased to 41 inches to accommodate the wide track set up but is still compact enough to fit through a 42 inch gate. With 3.5 psi ground pressure, this unit offers a light footprint and improved flotation for better traction in sandy or wet ground conditions.
