What document scanner do you recommend for many filing cabinets worth of scanning?

Where can I find recommendations for document scanner to handle what I'd consider "medium - large volume" scanning of our office files?

We have approx. 6 - 7 regular filing cabinets full of paper files we'd like to scan to PDF files. Most documents are regular letter sized, some 2 sided (not many), some legal size. There may be some color documents. We view this as a long term project, and while we'd like to dedicate a full-time person to do nothing but scan, it will probably be 2 days a week.
We already have a Sharp MX-3501 that can scan to PDF directly, but this is also our main copier for the office and is used regularly for that and printing, so we need a dedicated scanner. I've looked at the Fujitsu Snapscan S1500 but don't know if it is "heavy duty" enough for what we need? What other recommended scanners are there?
