New Toro Compact Utility Loader!! Toro TX1000

So I've always been a fan of Toros mini skids...especially the TX525 and TX427. 2 Days ago Toro press room announced a brand new Machine with a vertical lift path that has an operating capacity of 1000+ lbs. Hinge pin height of 81 Inches that can easily reach truck beds,dumpsters and dump trailers! Here's a link to Toro's press room for more details.

Here's a YouTube link to see the machine in action! Could definitely be a game changer...

Watch "Toro Dingo TX 1000 Overview" on YouTube

Lift Height has definitely been an issue and not only did they increase the hinge pin height but they doubled the operating capacity! This is going to be a home run for Toro. Bobcat is going to have no choice but to come back with a new machine. It's about time anyway...All the mini skids needed an upgrade.

If the little ASV just doesn't work for you then I guess this is the answer.

The Rc30 is small but still right above the mini skid class...can't really compare the 2. But that said....The New TX1000 actually has more impressive specs than the RC30. Higher operating capacity, Higher tipping load,comparable hinge pin height,Smaller Footprint, several hundred lbs. Lighter...Ect. Ect.
Rc30 is a great little machine but more or less a full size CTL.

2700 lbs on the toro and 3000 lbs on the ASV is the same weight in my world. I mean if I put on 300lbs myself, that would be bad. But on a skid steer there is no difference.

You're right... Weight isnt really any kind of an issue...except maybe which trailer is used for transport. And the RC30 actually has a lower ground pressure rating even at 3300 lbs... It's just the whole mini skid class was created so that that they are able to access places full size skids can't go. With that said, to each his own. For the work I do every day...I have no need for a machine that big. On the occasion that I do, I'd rent a full size Bobcat. Not knocking the RC30 by any means but, it's still considerably larger than a dingo or Bobcat MT...

I don't have either one (asv dingo) so I don't really know. Just looking at the obvious on paper stuff. If they are generally the same size then at that point it's just sit vs stand. I have rented dingos a bunch of times and they kind of piss me off every time.
