Schaeff Lift Truck is a manufacturing company that
has been setting the standard for quality for over forty
years. We produce the largest and most versatile line of
electric, stand-up, counter-balance forklifts which the
material handling industry has come to rely upon.
We strive to provide our lift truck users with the
safest, most efficient, and ergonomic machines possible.
In 1995, Schaeff introduced the
electric, stand-up, counterbalance lift truck. So
versatile, the design has lift capacities ranging from
3,000 to 6,000 pounds, forward and side stances, rear
and side entries, a simplex, duplex, triplex, and quad
mast reaching heights of more than 292", and 81" to 95"
overhead guards that all result in thirty six frame and
seventy two mast configurations.
Two years later, Schaeff launched the
electric, stand-up, counterbalanced forklift. The
innovate addition to the Warehousing Series can pivot
loads 180 degrees for side-to-side narrow aisle access
without turning the chassis. The W90T is the perfect
solution for those high-density storage applications
where space is a major concern, as this lift has the
ability to transform any warehouse into an efficient,
high-density storage facility.
The Echo 3000TM
was introduced in 1999 as the electric, stand-up,
counterbalanced forklift for customers who want a more
basic model without all the extras. It is designed to
work in a ten foot aisle, and lift 3,000 lbs. up to
189". Like the Warehousing Series, this lift has the
ability to maneuver over bumps and potholes with its
dual drive motors. Plus, the Echo 3000TM was engineered
with built-in diagnostics to reduce trouble shooting
Every lift designed
by Schaeff was created with our customers in mind. The
following are features we've added to our Warehousing
Series trucks in order to ensure an all-around, more
enjoyable and safe lift experience.
Warehousing Series lift has a Multi Function Handle that
has revolutionized the forklift industry. By
manipulating the handle, which controls every operation
except steering, the lift truck's operator can lower and
lift objects, and drive backward, forward, or side shift
left or right. Drivers can also operate the control
handle without looking at it, which results in better
task concentration. Schaeff's ergonomic multi-function
control handle fits the contours of the hand, relieves
wrist strain and with the handle's large control
buttons, it can even be operated while wearing gloves.
Comfort wasn't overlooked when designing
lifts. The operator compartment is twenty two percent
more spacious than its predecessor which held the title
of being the largest in the industry. The compartment is
also fully complimented on three plus sides with molded,
contoured rubber padding to provide the operator with
optimum comfort and support.
offer smoother operation, more efficient and precise
control over travel speed, easy lifting and
maneuverability, and continuous dual drive (two wheels
under control at all times), enabling operators to move
freely, without worry in tight spaces and over varying
Closed-Loop Controls offer
electronic position hold (posi-hold) which secures the
forklift when on a ramp with un-applied brake.
Performance is digitally programmable. Features such as
side shift, tilt speeds, travel, lift/lower,
accelerate/decelerate, shock impact threshold detection
make lift operations easy to complete. Schaeff lifts can
even climb ramps at a 15 degree incline.
Runtime Diagnostics were added to keep the forklifts
running smoothly and to significantly reduce downtime.
Schaeff Lift Truck has a reputation for
unmatched safety standards; standards that have always
met OSHA's requirements. Ergonomic and safety features
such as the following can reduce workman's compensation
and operator fatigue, resulting in a happier, more
efficient, and productive work environment.
high visibility overhead guard has been designed to
protect the operator from falling objects and to provide
the operator with a clear view of the elevated mast.
A wide-set mast with dual internal reeving offers even
greater visibility while giving its operator a clear
forward view for optimum safety.
alert the operator of errors.
The ramp-hold keeps the
forklift in place on an inclined ramp with an unapplied
brake. This allows the operator to hop in and out of the
forklift without worrying about rollback when stopped or
Electronic steering makes maneuvering
the lift effortless.
A low, 7" step height makes it
easy to enter and exit the lift.
With the 1.5" thick,
low-impact, shock absorbing floor pads, a smoother, more
comfortable ride is guaranteed.
Wrap-Around operator's compartment has also been
designed to contour and support.
At Schaeff we
are continuously developing leading edge technology to
be used in the engineering of new products and
manufacturing operations. We have become a leading
competitor in the marketplace as a supplier of materials
handling equipment and will strive to maintain that
position through continued enhancements to our product
line, our quality, and our productivity.
Concluding, operators find
Schaeff forklifts easy,
enjoyable, and safe to handle, while technicians find
them easy to service.
