German wheel-loader brand Schäffer continues its US debut at TCI EXPO 2018


DFD Loaders, Inc. will be at TCI EXPO 2018 in Charlotte, NC on November 8-10, 2018, exhibiting the Schäffer construction equipment line, which has a six-decade history of innovation and distribution in more than forty countries. DFD Loaders will exhibit at booth #619.

TCI EXPO 2018 will serve as a continuation of the soft launch activities for DFD Loaders to announce its exclusive U.S. distribution of Schäffer construction wheel loaders. DFD Loaders expects a strong entry into the compact wheel loader space, given Schäffer’s global reputation for quality-engineered equipment that fills gaps not filled by current equipment offered in the U.S. Interest in DFD Loaders remains high after the company exhibited at the GIE+Expo and FNGLA’s The Landscape Show in October. (FNGLA, or the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association is the largest state association of its kind.)

Handpicked to meet the needs of the landscape, tree care, construction, snow removal, and property maintenance industries, Schäffer’s entire U.S. product lineup meets EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IIIB emission standards and is compatible with most skid steer attachments in the market, due to a universal quick-connect headstock, which comes standard. Other notable design features include patented technology which makes the center pivot considerably stronger than those of competing products and virtually indestructible, as well as original Schäffer axles designed specifically for high thrust forces.
