DINGO/TORO SAFETY TIPS AND INFORMATION

WARNING: NEVER RAISE ATTACHMENTS EXCEPT WHEN IN A STATIONARY POSITION ON FLAT GROUND, MACHINE MAY TIP FORWARD CAUSING INJURY OR DAMAGE.

When using the Dingo/Toro with any attachment there are a few important safety issues to consider.
Always ensure attachments are positioned as low as possible when machine is in motion. Driving forward or reverse with a raised attachment may result in the machine tipping or falling forward causing injury or damage.
If working on a slope, always work up and down keeping the heaviest end facing uphill. Never work across the slope as the machine can easily roll sideways, especially if attachment is raised.
Always keep children inside the house while working on the Dingo.
While machine is working no other person should be standing or working within 4.5 metres.
If the attachment or lifting arms are in the raised position no one should stand or work around or under the lifting arms/attachment. The attachment and lifting arms can drop suddenly if the lower lever is pushed or hydraulics fail.
While working on a Dingo/Toro you always need to wear PPE (Personal Safety Equipment) hearing protection, gloves and steel capped boots to avoid injury.

Dingo/Toro Controls
The Dingo/Toro can easily be controlled using the 8 levers and ignition key on the control panel area.
Ignition key – Turn key to the right and release to start engine.
Throttle lever – Should be set in the idle position when machine is started or turned off. Once engine is running move throttle to achieve required revs.
Dual forward, reverse and turning levers – These levers are situated between the hand grips. To use them hold onto hand grips and push both of them with your thumbs to move forward. To turn gently push one slightly more than the other. To reverse hold onto the hand grips and pull levers backwards with your index fingers, again pull one lever slightly more than the other to turn gently.
Raise and lower arms lever – This lever is on the LHS of the dual forward, reverse and turning levers. To raise the lifting arms pull lever back using your three outside fingers on your left hand. To lower lifting arm push lever forward using the front of the same fingers.
Tilt attachment up and down lever – This lever is on the RHS of the dual forward, reverse and turning levers. To raise the attachment pull lever back using your three outside fingers on your right hand. To lower attachment push lever forward using the front of the same fingers.
Attachments flow lever – This lever is situated at the front right hand corner. Pull up and push this lever forward to open and pull up and back to close the 4 in 1 bucket. Push forward to drive trencher attachment and pull back to drive post hole auger.
Attachment flow divider lever – This lever is positioned directly in front of dual forward, reverse and turning levers. By pushing this lever forward, you will give the four drive wheels about 80% of the machines hydraulic power, which will make the machine move faster across the ground, leaving only 20% of the power for the attachment. By pulling this lever back the attachment will receive 80% of hydraulic power, this is used when attachments like trenchers and posthole diggers need more power. In this position the wheels will only have 20% of the power so the machine will move slower across the ground.
Maximum flow divider lever – This lever is positioned in the front left hand corner and is generally only used when trenching. By pulling the lever completely backwards 100% of the hydraulic power will be sent to the attachment.

Dingo/Toro with Trencher
The Trencher attachment is the ideal way to dig trenches up to 900 mm deep and 150 mm wide, for drainage, plumbing and electrical cables. Other usesĀ  for the trencher are:
Breaking up hard ground (shale, clay etc)
Making cutouts in banks so retaining walls can be built.
Digging up stubborn plants and roots (especially palm roots)
Cutting down beside posts and small trees so they can be removed with the 4 in 1 bucket grab.
Breaking up and turning over ground in overgrown garden beds to allow easy removal of weeds and much more.

Dingo/Toro with Post Hole Drive and Auger
The post hole auger is the ideal way to dig holes for footings, all kinds of posts, plants and more.
The dingo/Toro can drive a variety of augers in sizes ranging from 200 mm to 450 mm. With the correct teeth the augers can dig through hard natural ground, bitumen, clay, shale etc. You can use the augers to dig up to 1200 mm standard and 2000 mm with an extension.
When drilling holes the dingo should be set as follows:
Revs at appropriate level
Flow divider pulled back to maximum flow to attachment.
Position point of auger over centre mark on ground for hole.
While holding attachment flow lever back so auger turns clockwise, push forward the lower arm lever with your left hand so the auger starts to push down on the ground to dig. While digging the hole check as the auger goes down that it is level.

Dingo/Toro with 4 in 1 Bucket
The 4 in 1 Bucket is the most commonly used attachment. Its uses include digging, moving and spreading dirt, gravel, rocks, sand, mulch and more. This bucket can be used in a variety of ways
Digger/Loader – To set up the dingo to start digging into a pile of dirt lower the loading arm till it hits the body of the dingo/Toro, then raise the arm about 50 mm to 100 mm off the machine body, then tilt the bucket down until the leading edge touches the ground. Drive the machine forward and push into the pile until the bucket is full, then tilt the bucket up and move to the unload position. Empty the bucket by either opening the 4 in1 or tipping the bucket forward,
Grab – With the 4 in 1 you can grab any material around such as dirt, gravel, road base, rocks, tree stumps, general rubbish and more.
Blade – With the bucket in the open position you can push material forward or drag material backwards.

Dingo/Toro Hire with levelling bar
The levelling bar is a very useful attachment for spreading dirt, gravel, sand, road base and more. Simply place the bar flat grab it with the 4 in 1 bucket and drive back and forwards to achieve a smooth even finish to your project.
