Pikewillis, I know you are a Dingo dealer so you have to be a little biased, but there is no way that a TX425 will out lift a Boxer 427. I used to own a 427. We ran that thing hard, and it was worn out when we traded it. But before we did, I demoed a TX525 and a Vermeer S650tx alongside our former 427. I will tell you right now, the only thing a Toro outperform a Boxer in is ground speed when empty. We were moving trees and rocks around with the Boxer that we would have to put extra men on the back of the Dingo to move. With that said, the Vermeer is in a class of its own. We were hung up on the money on the Vermeer, and I came to the conclusion that I would do without before I bought a Dingo. Everyone is talking about hand cramps with the sticks on a Boxer? I was begging for the sticks on a Boxer after I ran that Dingo. We ended up buying the Vermeer, and have been very happy with the decision. To the OP the Boxer is a good unit, and I would not hesitate to own one.
