By 2002, however, Schaedler realized a lot of his business was in Northwest Ohio, and he relocated the company to a site just off I-75 in Toledo, giving him easy access to customers in southeastern Michigan and eastern Indiana as well as Ohio. SEI continues to serve those same markets today, working mainly within a 100-mile radius of Toledo, according to Tom Greenman, vice president.

The newest of these is the HTC-86100, a 100-ton hydraulic truck crane the company purchased from Columbus Equipment Company when it replaced a smaller, 2008 HTC-8690 model. After looking at Link-Belt and Grove machines in the 100-ton class, SEI chose the Link-Belt, in part because they liked the Cummins motor in the 86100. They also liked the chart the Link-Belt offered. The 86100 can work with multiple counterweight configurations to provide capacity for just about any job requirement. “Link-Belt’s 86100 is a great crane,” Greenman said. “It’s a good, oversized vehicle for what it is, and it goes 9 CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT Schaedler Enterprises Inc.
