Toyota Material Handling to launch first Huski mini excavator range

Presented by

Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) is set to launch its first range of Huski mini-excavators, featuring high break-out force and zero tail-swing.


The range consists of seven models including one 1.3-tonne short-radius machine and six Zero TailSwing models ranging from 1.6-tonne through to 6-tonne. The new range will debut at The National Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo between 15 and 17 May 2020, at the Penrith Panthers Showgrounds in Sydney. Full supply of the range will be available by third-quarter (Q3) 2020.Huski Construction Equipment product manager, Matt Meddows, says the addition of excavators to the Huski range will greatly complement its current product offering.

"Mini excavators are a natural progression for our business as they fit perfectly with our current range offering," Meddows says.

"This has been a long time coming. A lot of customers have been asking about excavator offerings for many years and we are proud to announce we now have a range with powerful break-out force and zero tail-swing in tonnages of 1.6, 2.2, 2.8, 3.8, 5.8 and 6.0.

"It was about us finding a machine we were confident would meet the standards that we base our reputation on," Meddows continues.

"We now have the right partner to build our Huski excavators - which feature Kubota-engines - to our specifications."

The machines have been made in Italy for the last 25 years by a company founded in the early Sixties. It was certified ISO 9001 in 1999 and has since continually grown and refined its manufacturing processes.

Mr Meddows said the Huski mini excavators distinguish themselves in market with their exceptional break-out force.

"We have tested their break-out force or digging power and it compares quite highly with other machines in-market," Meddows says.

The Huski mini excavators come generously equipped as standard, and many options are also available including factory quick-hitch piping, blade-float options on all models (and standard from 2.8-tonnes upwards) and extended counterweight options from 2.8- to 6-tonne machines.

Mr Meddows concluded that many of the customers trialling the new models have been impressed with their experiences and expects other existing Huski customers to follow.
