Hutcheon and Pearce is a third-generation dealership for John Deere and a number of other agriculture equipment manufacturers.

The 18 forklifts were delivered by Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) through Liftek, and will be used across Hutcheon and Pearce’s 11 branches in southern New South Wales

Liftek has been supplying forklifts to Hutcheon and Pearce for the last five years.

The 18 Toyota units include seven new Toyota 8-Series 8FD30 forklifts and three new 8FD50N forklifts, plus eight fully refurbished forklifts ranging in capacity from one to eight tonnes.

Hutcheon and Pearce managing director Arron Hutcheon says the forklifts are the forgotten heroes of the company's fleet.

"We want our staff to have the best equipment available to do their job," Hutcheon says. "Our mixed forklift fleet had grown to over 20 forklifts as we have expanded over the years and acquired more dealerships.

"Some of the forklifts in the fleet were well overdue for replacement and when we started looking at our options, we soon realised we had two main objectives - to update the whole fleet to see us through the next 10 years."

Liftek managing director Chaise Staltare says its service support arrangements matched the needs of Hutcheon and Pearce and its forklifts.

"The 11 Hutcheon and Pearce branches are mainly spread out within two to three hours of the Griffith area in all directions," Staltare says.

"All the branches are located in country towns that we already service, which gave us the edge for support as our eight fully equipped service and breakdown vehicles were travelling to the areas already."

A key safety feature of Toyota 8-Series forklifts is the active stability system, which helps reduce the likelihood of lateral roll-overs.
