Toro to debut compact utility loader at IRE
24 May 2023
US-based manufacturer Toro has said its eDingo 500 compact utility loader will make its European tradeshow debut at the International Rental Exhibition in Maastricht next month.
Launched in January, the machine comes with several upgrades when compared with the original version, which was launched in 2020.
New features include a HyperCell Power System, a new battery technology developed by Toro to match the power of traditional internal combustion-powered products with zero engine-exhaust emissions and less noise, and patented controls that enable it to be operated with Toro’s one-handed traction controls.
Its lithium-Ion battery pack, which delivers 2.3 kWh and can last up to eight hours of continous runtime, is said to ensure less maintenance and service needs when compared with a diesel or petrol equivalent, bringing a cost benefit to the rental company.
Toro says the loader has been optimised to deliver up to an eight-hour continuous runtime, while maintaining a 234kg Rated Operated Capacity.
Elsewhere on its stand, the company will also show the electric Ultra Buggy e2500, which the company says it designed following calls from the rental industry for more “low-emission equipment, battery runtime that can match fossil-fuel power, and comfort and ease of use for the operator.”
The International Rental Exhibition takes place from the 6 to 8 of June alongside APEX. Registration for both events is free, if done in advance. By registering for one event, you gain free access to both. Click here to register for IRE.
