World Leader in Mini Diggers

concept of a mini loader/digger has been around since the early
eighties. The original machine was basically a motorised wheelbarrow
with the ability to run light duty hydraulic attachments off

current owner, Gary Briggs, purchased the Dingo manufacturing
rights back in 1991 and made radical
to the machine, turning the Dingo into a machine capable of far
greater things. Dingo is the market leader in Australia with
in excess of 4000 Dingo 950s around the country, including
over 600 Dingoes in the hire industry and over 600 Dingo contractors.
1995 Dingo hit the U.S.A. By the end of 1997 one shipping container
per week was leaving Australia. The U S market grew so quickly
that the logistics of shipping from Australia became unmanageable
and the machines for that market are now being built in the U.S.A.
by Toro. In 1999 the Dingo hit the rest of the world and established
itself as the world leaders in mini diggers. To date Toro have
sold approximately 5000 machines worldwide and continue to increase
their numbers monthly.

also dedicated Dingo customers along with hundreds of smaller hire

clearly demonstrates the user friendliness of the machines and
the low maintenance requirements. Hire customers request to hire
a Dingo, knowing that this is the machine they need
to get their job done.
next biggest industry group is people operating Dingoes daily
as part of Dingo contracting businesses. These people really
put the machines through their paces. Dingo Contractors get to

Dingos ability to work efficiently and effectively every day of the week.

more benefits to you
Dingo Mini Diggers realise that the average person
isnt in the market
to buy a Dingo, and we realise that no matter how much we tell them that
a Dingo would be an excellent machine to keep along-side the lawn mower,
it really doesnt make economical sense for the average householder
to own a Dingo for domestic purposes.
that doesnt stop us from incouraging them to use
a Dingo! Whether they get in a Dingo Contractor (wet hire)
or Hire one locally (dry hire), its still good
news to us.
we actively promote the hiring of Dingoes and the use
of contractor services. We do this through paid advertising
on TV, Radio, and in magazines. We actively seek exposure
on Lifestyle television programmes and encourage
commentary that promotes wet and dry hire of Dingoes.
Our sales representatives and branches give out lists
contractors and hire shops to potential hirers. And we
print brochures which highlight the 3 methods for getting
a Dingo on your team - Rent, Use a Contractor, or Buy.
We dont just drop the machine on your doorstep
and leave you to it. We guide you through the use and
maintenance of your new prized possession. Aside from
our trained staff who will offer a wealth of information
we have manuals for operation, maintenance and parts,
plus training videos. Our training events keep all
our Sales and Service staff up to date with new developments
and new practises.

Its early days and weve achieved great
things already. But it has really only just begun.
The potential for
Dingo products is limited only by imagination. From landscapers to builders,
national parks to farmers, miners to aluminium plants, the list goes on and on.
Dingo Mini Diggers growth rate since its
beginning has been astronomical and we dont
expect it to slow in the near future. Whilst
other mini loader manufacturers may
come on the market, Dingo Mini Diggers intend
to be here for the long run and keep ahead of
the competition - maintaining our position of
