Toro Dingo Advice

I just graduated college with a degree in Landscape Design and management. I have started an install buisiness and am looking to add a Dingo to my tools. I found one close by that has 1200 hours on machine with a brand new motor not rebuilt. it comes with the cultivator, landscape rake, pallet forks, bucket, land leveler. i think i can buy it for around 6k... is this a good deal??? also the left side has a small leak i think it has a broken seal.. any help would be apppreciated thanks

Whole deal for 6K. I would jump on that in a heartbeat.

No clue on that. Could be a number of things. As long as it doesn't leak bad, I wouldn't worry about it. I haven't ever seen any machine with a hydraulic system that didn't leak.

I grew up on a farm and our philosophy was don't buy a piece of equipment that you can't work on yourself, so if you are cash strapped and worried about repair bills, then I wouldn't venture into it.

If it has tits, tracks or tires its going to be a money pit. Get use to it now so it won't shock you latter.

It runs out awesome turns with no noises and the leak is minor but comes from large wheel in the rear left of machine.. other than that no problems with it.

Basically I would call your toro dealer and tell them them the model and hours and they can tell you what parts might go bad soon.

I had my Vermeer rep. give me a write-up of the parts for my mini before I decided to buy. The biggest expense for me was going to be the pump if it ever fails, and they sell re-maned pumps for a fraction of new.

If I understand correctly what attachments come with it and if they are in decent shape the attachments themselves are worth almost 6K...the cultivator is big dollars. I would buy that in a heartbeat...
