It should be the same thing as a Boxer. What is your question?

There is a Toro dealer in Lenexa, KS. Just go to Toro's website and you can find the dealers contact information. The Toro website will provide you with all the information on their machines, except pricing. A landscape co. I used to work for used the Toro Dingos. They were a pretty tough machine for no more maintenance than they gave them. If it is another brand of mini-skid you are looking for, use the search feature on Lawnsite.....there is a review of about every brand. Sorry, don't have the particular thread handy.

If you are talking about the Boxer then its one of the best machines out there. Especially the diesel. We have had the Diesel boxer for about a year and a half now and use it everyday. Nothing has stopped it yet. Very powerful and reliable.

Here are some crappy pics.

This thread is fantastic, lots of first hand reviews of all types including the powerhouse line-up. Take your time reading it, it will take about a day, but hey your spending 8K plus, so it should be worth it.

also have you gone to power houses own web site? http://www.cpiequipment.com/index.html.

I have personally used all the Dingo variations, the Vermeer, the Boxer, the Prodigy, and the Thomas. I hated the little Prodigy time and again (I know thats not the model your talking about) The Dingo has the least lawn damaging tracks, the big Boxer has the most power, the Vermeer is really a nice ride.

What are you looking for in particular?

I believe powerhouse makes the unit for boxer. I don't really think you can go wrong w/ boxer/powerhouse, dingo, or vemeer. I personally like my 425 the best...

i am looking to maybe ad a tracked unit. i love my wheeled dingo, like i always say, "won't go without my dingo". but i vibraplow alot for irrigation and thought a tracked unit would be helpful when its not completely dry. i just happen to see a power house for sale and didn't know much about them.
