Robert Genovese, proprietor of The Building Workshop, says that his Schaffer 3033 compact articulated loader is pretty handy at multi-tasking around a building site.
As a builder of shopping centres and commercial buildings, versatility was top of the wish list when choosing his first loader. “We never had our own machinery before,” says Robert Genovese.
After seeing the German-made articulated loaders from Schaffer Loaders at Boya Equipment when looking at other equipment, he made the decision to purchase a 3033 articulated loader.
Since then, the Schaffer 3033 compact articulated loader has been in constant use, unloading pallets of bricks and materials, erecting limestone walls, doing minor earthworks and cleaning up rubbish on all kinds of building projects.
According to Robert Genovese, the Schaffer 3033 compact articulated loader is a pocket rocket, with plenty of brute strength despite its small size. “It’s got a very good load capacity, it can lift around a tonne quite high.
“It’s also got a good reach on the bar that holds the bucket, which is superior to a skid steer. That’s particularly useful when we’re building limestone walls. We can lift and reach out further and easily backfill because we can reach over the wall.”
Ease of operation is a bonus. “The real beauty of the articulated loader is that anybody can hop on with minimal instructions because it’s very easy to operate – and very safe,” he adds.
