Toro has introduced the new e-Dingo 500 electric compact utility loader. The e-Dingo allows end users to realize all the benefits and power of a standard compact utility loader with no fuel costs and zero exhaust emissions. Ideal for indoor construction jobs that require fast completion times, the new e-Dingo is available in Spring 2020.

The e-Dingo is powered by lithium-ion battery technology designed for tasks that require heavy or continuous operation for indoor applications. The maximum operating capacity of 515 lbs. reduces labor and hauling time.

Versatility is also a hallmark of the new e-Dingo thanks to Toro’s 4-Paw independent 4-wheel drive system and true spin-turn performance. Plus, several existing Dingo attachments are compatible with the new e-Dingo models, including: standard bucket, narrow bucket, light materials bucket, adjustable forks, multi-purpose tool, hydraulic breaker, grapple, leveler, utility blade, and auger.

The e-Dingo allows operators to utilize several power modes to conserve energy. The Auto Idle feature automatically conserves energy by powering off the motor after it’s been idle for a certain amount of time. The machine also shifts to low idle after 5 seconds of non-use and shuts off when not in use for over 30 seconds. The operator can then instantly restart the machine by simply double-tapping the traction control lever.
