    Is the "Dingo" brand of mini loaders that is manufactured in Australia, available in the USA? Or is Toro the rep. for them? Or does Toro have their own brand called the Dingo?

    Also, along the same line; what unit do you prefer? Mostly in the 15 - 25 hp range.

  2. I thought the ones from Australlia were the "kangas"?

    We don't run mini-skids. They might be handy, but I've found dedicated machines work better in our area.

    That said, Toro makes the Dingo here.

    Hide the children when you're using it. After all, "the dingo ate my bye-bee" is a famous case. :laugh:

    our office is on atlantic beach, but i live in morehead across from the morehead waterfront.


    we demo'd the boxer before we bought the dingo...
    the gas, var. track boxer did not have any more power than the dingo.
    as a matter of fact, when we drove the boxer in high range, it did not have the hydro power to make sweeping turns. We had to totally stop one track for the other one to turn. the only way we could make easy sweeping turns was to keep it in low.

    the boxer had a lot of cool features, but there were many small things that we did not like. we could have bought the boxer and the same attachment package for a few thousand less, but chose the dingo instead..

    now the ditch witch sk 500 model is the one that i thought was a great machine (but almost $5k more)... the new 650 totally rocks.
