Peter Ravesi’s wholesale nursery Red Cloud Bamboo near Melbourne grows new varieties of non-invasive bamboo for fashionable small-space Asian, Japanese and tropical gardens.

Pete’s old tractor was too big and cumbersome to nip in and out of the bamboo plants at the nursery. He told Schaffer Loaders , “We needed something much more manoeuvrable, that didn’t chew up the ground.”

The ideal solution to his problem was the 2026 loader, the baby of the Schaffer fleet of loaders, and Pete is very happy with its performance.

“It’s surpassed all my expectations. We use our Schaffer 2026 for general maintenance, to move soil, grade tracks and clean up rubbish. We also use the forks to move large plants, fertilisers and potting mix.

“It’s very smooth to manoeuvre and saves us lots of time and labour. We’re still discovering new things it can do every day.”
