Skid steer loaders are an essential piece of equipment in the materials handling sector and many companies will operate a number of units to cater for various load capacities and individual load requirements. While checking out what’s currently available in the skid steer market to share with you, we came across a great story of an interesting application – in Melbourne Zoo.
Reported in the media in May 2020, a Toyota Huski 55 DK8 is being used by the zoo keepers on the enrichment programme for their Asian Elephants. The loader is put to work to move material around the elephant enclosure to create changes in their environment and encourage their natural behaviour.
