Graham Butler of Butler's Bobcat Hire recently commissioned a new 650kg operating weight Toyota Huski 5SDK-8 from Toyota Material Handling Australia .
By commissioning his 9th new Toyota Huski, the Queensland skid-steer loader owner-operator was maintaining a 30-year tradition of Toyota ownership based on reliability, service back-up and long-standing relationships with branch staff.
Mr Butler has now owned three Toyota 3SDK-8 Huskis, four 4SDK-8s and two 5SDK-8s. Mr Butler's business is based at Toorbul in Brisbane's north, but general hire jobs see him cover a wide area of south-east Queensland.
Mr Butler founded his business in 1983 with a hydrapower JR1800 skid-steer loader (production ceased in 1985) and soon after upgraded to a Toyota 2SDK8. He purchased his first new machine from Toyota's then Brisbane dealer Willtrac Toyota.
He bought his latest 5SDK-8 skid steer from Toyota Material Handling Brisbane area earthmoving sales manager Syd Williams - grandson of Willtrac founder Sir Sydney Williams.
Mr Butler specifically mentions the reliability of the Huski skid steer loaders and the service back-up received from the dealership.
The Toyota Huski 5SDK-8 is one of six Huski skid-steer loader models offered nationally by Toyota Material Handling. Models range from the compact 4SDK-4 right up to the 900kg operating load 5SDK-11.
Key benefits of the Huski 5SDK-8 skid steer loaders:
- Spacious cabin opening for smooth entry and exit
- Easy-to-read instrument panel
- Low vibration and low fatigue control levers for excellent operator comfort
- Class-leading visibility and manoeuvrability
