The Toro Company unveils both narrow- and wide-track TX 427 models. Both loaders feature a 27-hp Kohler engine that delivers added torque for increased pulling and digging force. These models also come standard with a heavy-duty 2-stage air cleaner that offers superior dust and dirt filtration, even when the engine is working in the harshest environments. Featuring four independent hydraulic pumps, TX 427 compact utility loaders deliver 16.9 gallons per minute (gpm) of flow to each track, 11.4 gpm to the auxiliary hydraulics and 6 gpm to the loader arm. The auxiliary hydraulics on the TX 427 models pump 19 hp flow to the attachment for increased productivity in ground-engaging applications. Weighing just 2,006 pounds with a standard bucket, the TX 427 narrow track loader has a rated operating capacity of 535 pounds (35% of tip capacity). The TX 427 wide track model weighs 2,186 pounds with a standard bucket, and it offers the same rated operating capacity as the narrow track model at 535 pounds (35% of tip capacity). 800.344.8676,
