Toro has made a major advancement to their material buggy line with the introduction of the all-new Swivel Mud Buggy. Built on the same frame as the popular MB TX 2500 Tracked Mud Buggy, the new Swivel Mud Buggy features a redesigned tub that enables it to swivel 180 degrees, allowing users to dump materials anywhere between the 180-degree angle.
For enhanced durability, the Swivel Mud Buggy also offers a thicker 3/8-inch polyethylene tub material. With the increased thickness of the tub, users can tackle more jobs regardless of the material being transported, including sand, rock, mulch or even cement. In addition to the swivel feature and the redesigned tub, the swivel switch travels with the right-hand control handle, allowing operators to safely and efficiently operate the machine while simultaneously swiveling the tub.
The Toro Swivel Mud Buggy can carry up to 2,500 lbs. (16 cu. ft.) of material, and the 25-hp Kohler Confidant engine delivers enough power to handle even the most challenging material handling applications. Additionally, the Swivel Mud Buggy can reach transport speeds of up to 6 mph in forward and 3 mph in reverse to efficiently transport material around the jobsite. In terms of durability, the rugged Endless Kevlar reinforced tracks are built for high performance and offer traction for a wide range of terrain, including hillsides, culverts and ditches. The unit also performs well in various conditions such as mud, gravel and even snow.
“We know our customers are looking for a machine that focuses on increasing productivity in every way and ensuring that they can get their jobs done with precision,” says Kaitlyn Ingli, marketing associate at Toro. “Our Swivel Mud Buggy was engineered to deliver exceptional precision, user-friendly controls, and ultimately, an innovative and highly efficient working experience for Toro end users.”
The unit also features an auto-return dump feature that eliminates the need for the operator to wait for the tub to return to the traveling position, increasing overall productivity.
The model weighs approximately 1,575 lbs. and boasts an impressive 16 cubic foot tub volume. It offers convenient service points for routine maintenance. The belts, hydraulics, battery and engine compartment are all easily accessible and simple to maintain.
