Schulte Industries' origins started on April 17th, 1912, when Caspar Schulte acquired the (smithy) blacksmith business in Englefeld, Saskatchewan. Caspar's oldest son John Schulte joined the business with his father in 1932, and like his father, was kept busy keeping customers happy. In 1938 John Schulte took over the blacksmith business on his own.
After our company switched to Schulte, our revenue per cutter went up 33%. We were getting paid by the acre so we were always worried about production and cost per acre. We were having problems with competitive cutters. We tried the Schulte cutters and it didn’t take us long to figure out that it was the cutter we wanted. We didn’t realize how bad our previous cutters were until we put a Schulte on the ground. We think the Schulte cuts better period. It’s unbelievable the quality of cut that we can get at what we would call a high rate of mowing speed. We get paid by the acre so productivity is a big deal for us, ground speed is a big deal for us.
