Network Attached Scanner - Must be able to scan legal size from the glass

I work for a trucking company - we have multi-form sheets that cannot be fed through an ADF on a scanner.  I am looking for a network attached scanner that will do the following:
-Scan Legal size documents on the glass.
-Have the ability to create .pdf files on a network folder with no client software interaction (preferably using CIFS/SMB, but could be via FTP).
-ability to "build jobs" - there may be multiple pages that should be created into a single pdf file
-abillity to create OCR enabled .pdf files.
-Single "button" programmed with the file destination (should not require user interaction to select network locations, etc).
This will be in a warehouse environement where multiple crews will be responsible for scanning in paperwork at the end of a shift.  There will not be a PC attached to the scanner.
I have researched many scanners that can do legal size documents - but they need to be done through the ADF (automatic Document feeder) - this will not work for us.  It has to be legal from the glass.
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  It could be a MFC device.

Fujitsu scanners are really good and reliable. i have used them before and apart from ADF functionality you can also create pdf files and access them through http://yourscanner. Most network scanners especially large multifunction copiers/scanners have a built in http server to host your scanned documents. hope that helps

If you want quality and speed then go with Fujitsu
see some of their network scanners here: http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/computing/peripherals/scanners/network/

i have tried Canon, Fujitsu and Kodak in the past and Fujitsu is the most reliable make you can get now a days. You have to change rollers from time to time and even that is cheaper than parts for canon scanners
