In this video, TradeEarthmovers.com.au chief heavy machinery reviewer Ron Horner climbs into the cabin of a Toyota Huski 5SDK10 skid-steer loader to give it a bit of a workout.
He’s immediately impressed with the comfort and visibility. This, as he explains in his full review, was a bit of a worry going into Toyota Material Handling Australia’s (TMHA) yard at Larapinta in Brisbane.
“I usually give any of the smaller machines a wide berth when it comes to operating,” Ron says. “I find that the confined cabin space, short wheelbase and non-uniform controls tend to be at odds with this old, worn out body and its ever-expanding waistline and rear end.
“Only those with some age on them or carrying old injuries will understand what I mean.”
In the video you’ll also see Holger Wernick, a 5SDK8 owner operator who happened to call into the Brisbane yard while the demonstration was taking place.
“Holger kindly accepted my invitation to get into the Huski demonstration machine and show me how a real professional does it,” Ron says. “Darn, he was good …. he didn’t spill a drop of the coffee in the cup holder.”
Ron also has a chat to TMHA earthmoving area sales manager Syd Williams about the features of this machine.
