Two-time world motorcycle champion Casey Stoner will be the 'face' of Toyota's Huski skid-steer loader range for a further two years.
Stoner has renewed his agreement with Toyota Material Handling for a further two years, to the end of March 2014, and taken delivery of a second Huski 5SDK-11 loader.
The Huski 5SDK-11 is the largest loader in the comprehensive Toyota skid-steer range.
Toyota Material Handling Beresfield branch manager Peter Wilson delivered the latest skid steer loader to Stoner's farm in New South Wales.
Casey Stoner's image has been used to promote the Toyota Huski skid-steer loader range since 2009.
Toyota Material Handling Australia's Chief Operating Officer, Steve Takacs, said the whole company was delighted to continue having Casey Stoner not only using but also representing the company's Huski skid-steer loader products.
"Casey is an outstanding ambassador for Australian sport, and Toyota Material Handling Australia looks forward to another successful partnership with him," Mr Takacs said.
In 2007 Stoner became the second-youngest champion in the history of motorcycling's Grand Prix premier class, a championship which began in 1949.
Accolades after that victory included Young Australian of the Year.
He secured a second MotoGP championship in 2011 and has won more than 40 GPs in an 11-year GP career.
Toyota's new Huski 5SDK skid-steer loader range has five models, with operating load capacities from 320 to 900kg (SAE) - including two model choices not available in its predecessor, the highly popular 4SDK range.
The range spans from the carry-over 4SDK4 model with an operating load rating of 320kg, up to the range-topping new 5SDK11 with an operating load rating of 900kg.
Huski buyers can also opt for the Huski 5SDK9 (a new skid-steer loader model with an operating load rating of 730kg), the 5SDK5 (430kg operating load), the 5SDK8 (650kg) and the 5SDK10 (820kg).
Key features of the 5SDK skid-steer loader models include a larger open cabin, reduced noise and vibration levels and digital meters for quick fuel, oil and engine temperature checks.
The new 5SDK skid-steer loaders also incorporate the heavy-duty construction, low running costs and long machine-life characteristics which have encouraged the high levels of brand loyalty that Huski has achieved.
