Butler’s Bobcat Hire maintains 30 year Toyota Huski tradition
Graham Butler of Butler's Bobcat Hire is a strong supporter of the Toyota Huski skid steer loaders and the services Toyota provides.

Maintaining his 30-year tradition of Toyota ownership Butler's Bobcat Hire founder Graham Butler acquired a new 650kg operating weight Toyota Huski 5SDK-8.

He has now owned three Toyota 3SDK-8 Huskis, four 4SDK-8s and two 5SDK-8s.

Butler established his business in 1983 with a hydrapower JR1800 skid-steer loader (production ceased in 1985) upgraded soon after to a Toyota 2SDK8. He purchased his first new machine from Toyota's then Brisbane dealer Willtrac Toyota.

Butler 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.

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.

"The Huskis are reliable skid-steer loaders and the dealership has always supported me well with service back-up," Butler says.

"It's like dealing with a family to know the sales people and workshop staff at Toyota's Brisbane branch. For many years I bought my Huskis from Paul Allen and the latest one from Syd Williams."

For many years, Allen was Toyota's specialist Huski sales person in Brisbane and is now managing Toyota Material Handling Australia's (TMHA's) new Darwin branch.

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.

"The Huski 5SDK-8 has a spacious cabin opening for smooth entry and exit, along with an easy-to-read instrument panel and low vibration and low fatigue control levers, providing outstanding operator comfort," Syd Williams says.

"It has class-leading visibility and outstanding manoeuvrability."
