As the US gets more of a grip on the Covid pandemic during this summer 2021, the US is projected that building and maintaining infrastructure will be a major factor that will also increase jobs, and with that comes the need for equipment that can do multiple jobs and hold multiple functions at the job site.
This got us thinking about loaders. Most of us know that we can go out and buy or rent a Wheel Loader, or a Telehandler, but there is a new loader on the market that will do both jobs: Schaffer Telescopic Wheel Loaders.
What is a Wheel Loader?
“A loader is a heavy equipment machine used in construction to move or load materials such as soil, rock, sand, demolition debris, etc. into or onto another type of machinery.” (Google)
What is a Telehandler?
A telehandler is defined as “A telescopic handler, also called a telehandler, teleporter, reach forklift, or zoom boom, is a machine widely used in agriculture and industry.” (Google)
Can Schaffers really be used as both a Telehandler & a Wheel Loader?
Yes! Schaffer loaders were designed for both agriculture and construction industries. Their narrow working width makes them perfect for fitting into tight barn or project site spaces, while also allowing for high lift heights and the ability to use the telescopic boom like a telehandler! This machine has replaced several machines on our customers farms and job sites- making them a respected member of their team.
