As­tock fenc­ing com­pany in WA has sub­stan­tially in­creased pro­duc­tiv­ity with a Toy­ota Huski 5SDK-9 skid steer loader. Aussie Stock­yards op­er­ates out of Wa­gin, which is roughly 230km south of Perth, and builds gal­vanised steel fenc­ing for sheep and cat­tle yards on site as con­tin­u­ous pan­elling, us­ing a coil feed-line ma­chine.

Ear­lier this year, the com­pany placed an or­der with Toy­ota Ma­te­rial Han­dling Aus­tralia for a Huski 5SDK-9 skid steer loader to do a va­ri­ety of tasks on fenc­ing in­stal­la­tion jobs.

Aussie has been us­ing the Huski to level and clear ground, to drill post holes with the auger at­tach­ment, and to load and un­load the trucks. The com­pany says the skid steer has helped ex­pand the group’s ver­sa­til­ity.

“It has given us greater flex­i­bil­ity,” Aussie Stock­yards owner Troy Watt says. “We have a Palfin­ger crane at­tached to our main truck, but hav­ing the Huski means we don’t have to dig post holes by hand when work­ing un­der sheds and such.

“We’ve been very busy in the last few months and the loader has helped us keep up with de­mand.”

The Toy­ota Huski 5SDK-9 is pow­ered by a 44kW Toy­ota 2Z diesel, has an op­er­at­ing load of 730kg and has a dump height at 45 de­grees of 2290mm.

Toy­ota Ma­te­ri­als Han­dling Aus­tralia (TMHA) Perth area sales man­ager Dan Rhodes says that Aussie Stock­yards’ in­no­va­tive and suc­cess­ful use of the Huski 5SDK-9 high­lights the ver­sa­til­ity of the ma­chine.

“It is a plea­sure to see one of our load­ers help the op­er­a­tor of a thriv­ing busi­ness achieve more out­put in a day with less phys­i­cal stress,” he says.
