Schaffer loaders are becoming increasingly popular among the agricultural, industrial and construction industries.
However its youngest and smallest fan is 16 month old Gus Henry.
Gus has become increasingly fond of the front end loaders (tractors as he calls them), ever since he got hold of the Schaffer brochure that he found at the park under the Story Bridge at Kangaroo Point in Brisbane.
Gus’s love and interest in Schaffer front end loaders caused his Dad to request a DVD about the loaders from the Schaffer team.
The Henry family received the DVD along with a brochure and some bedtime stories about Schaffer experiences, to share with Gus.
Gus’ dad says, “From the second my wife put the DVD on for him, he stood in front of the TV saying ‘ta, ta, ta’ (thank you)… it would appear he wants one pretty bad, we’re going to need a bigger garage.”
The Schaffer DVD shows the full range of Schaffer front end loaders and telescopic loaders in working conditions.
Manufactured in Germany, Schaffer Loaders only uses good quality components in their front end loaders.
The Kubota water cooled engine and Bosch/Rexroth hydraulics maximise operational life and provide minimum downtime. ZF also constructs the axles to Schaffer’s exclusive design.
The front end loaders have a strong, heavy build, (from 1350kg to 6000kg operating weight). The front end loaders are articulated for maximum manoeuvrability with class leading articulation angles from 42 degrees to 65 degrees, enabling them to get into tight spaces as they are built compact (from 790mm to 2050mm wide) and they offer a range from 20hp to 130hp.
Schaffer Loaders is in a range of industries including earthmoving; construction and mining; shire councils; sand and soil yards; building; landscaping; turf, flower and tree farms; hobby farms and more.
Schaffer Loaders' management predicts that Gus has a good future ahead of him in the earthmoving or engineering industries, and that one day he will own a Schaffer of his own.
