The Toro Company has announced that all 2009 model year Toro Dingo TX 525 wide track and TX 525 narrow track diesel compact utility loaders will be biodiesel compatible for blends up to B20, which represents a mixture of 20 per cent biodiesel and 80 per cent petroleum diesel fuel. Biodiesel is a biodegradable, non-toxic alternative fuel derived from biological sources.

Compared to petroleum-based diesel fuels, biodiesel releases less carbon dioxide, unburned hydrocarbons and particulate matter which are all major contributors to greenhouse gas emissions.

This enhancement to diesel-powered Toro Dingo loaders follows on the heels of earlier announcements regarding Toro’s biodiesel-ready landscape contractor equipment and golf course and sports fields and grounds equipment.

“Demand for biodiesel-compatible equipment continues to grow,” says Greg Lawrence, product manager for the Toro Dingo line. “For the past five years, Toro has conducted extensive equipment testing using pure biodiesel and biodiesel blends. Our biodiesel-readiness initiative represents Toro’s continued commitment to exploring and developing innovative solutions that meet the needs of our customers while protecting the environment.”

The Toro Dingo TX 525 narrow track and TX 525 wide track compact utility loaders feature a 25-horsepower Kubota  diesel engine and deliver added torque and hydraulic flow for enhanced performance.
