"Some problems solve themselves over night," Michael Reinhoffer recalls, Sales Manager for Schöler Fördertechnik AG in Rheinfelden, Germany's second-largest Linde Material Handling dealer with a large sales territory in Baden-Württemberg. During the summer of 2016, he was planning to add Cleanfix cleaning robots to his product range, but had a difficult time figuring out exactly how to get the 250-kilogram piece of equipment to the customer. It was around the same time that Reinhoffer first saw xetto® during a presentation. "As a Linde dealer, we have seen our share of transport and lifting equipment. Still, we were immediately excited about xetto® ," Reinhoffer recounts. This essentially solved his problem of transporting Cleanfix units over night. He had previously contemplated a long list of solutions—such as loading by crane or purchasing a larger vehicle equipped with a lifting platform—only to dismiss them because they would have been uneconomical. The biggest issue was how to unload the Cleanfix cleaning robot from the vehicle. Municipal customers with sports or festival halls have neither a crane nor a forklift on-site. If you can't handle the job on your own you are out of luck.
Peter Schrott, who works for Schöler and is in charge of Cleanfix demos for customers on-site, chimes in: "The combination of xetto® and Cleanfix is very efficient and incredibly easy to use," he reports his day-to-day practical experience. Using an aluminum ramp, he moves the Cleanfix onto xetto® and then rolls both onto his light truck. As a result, he always has his helper on board. The lashing straps from the portfolio of xetto® accessories make it very easy to safely transport cargo.
