By "document scanner" you mean something that scas sheets of paper and
has an automatic feeder? And ideally duplex as well?
I recently picked up an old Fujitsu fi-6130z unit; it's of the sort
you'll typically see in medical offices where they need to scan in large
stacks of stuff quickly. They last approximately forever and can handle
a lot of physical abuse.
This model (and other fujitsus) are well supprted by SANE, and it makes
quick work of whaver I feed into it.
I also have an old Canon flatbed that works well, but it's not so great
when you need to scan in more than a page or two at a time.
ANYhoo. Back to the bitmines.
