Indoor construction and commercial remodeling jobs require a unique subset of equipment: compact enough to get through tight, sometimes occupied spaces, while still having enough power to complete the job. Equipment that emits exhaust emissions can also be extremely dangerous in enclosed spaces, so ventilation is key, but can be hard to come by. Enter the e-Dingo, Toro’s newly released electronic compact utility loader.

The e-Dingo promises the same benefits and power of a standard utility loader, just without the fuel costs and dangerous emissions. Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the machine has a maximum operating capacity of 515 pounds and is customizable with several different attachments, which also work with their standard Dingo.

The existing attachments include:

  • Standard Bucket

  • Narrow Bucket

  • Light Materials Bucket

  • Adjustable Forks

  • Multi-Purpose Tool

  • Hydraulic Breaker

  • Grapple

  • Leveler

  • Utility Blade

  • Auger

Reaching a top speed of 2.75 mph, the e-Dingo is also equipped with non-marking, solid wheels, to reduce damage to flooring materials to remain existing. The loader is 35.6” wide, 82.2” long with a bucket, 48.7” high, and weighs just over 2,000 pounds.

While Toro does state that the battery can be fully recharged in 8 hours, it doesn’t list total runtime, which is likely due to the variety of tasks it can perform, each putting different stress on the machine. To help preserve battery, the e-Dingo will go into Auto Idle mode, which shifts it to low idle after 5 seconds of non-use and shuts it off after 30 seconds of down time. The e-Dingo can be instantly woken up with a double tap of the traction control lever.
