Schäffer’s 9640 T loader impresses with its strength and robustness
Farmers Guardian’s Geoff Ashcroft finds out why one Yorkshire farm has moved away from a rigid chassis telehandler to a pivot steer machine, opting for a German-built Schäffer model.
“We’re now on our third Schäffer handler. We’ve run them for around 10 years, since replacing an old John Deere 3200 rigid chassis machine. Our primary objective was to improve visibility when working in and around livestock and buildings, and having a high seating position with a pivot-steer handler was the way forward for us.”
