Rotary Cutter Blades
Schulte Industries Ltd. recognizes that the mowing blades are a significant component of a rotary cutter and must be used properly as described in the operator’s manual. The blades are intended to cut grass, weeds and brush in a controlled manner. If the blades come in contact with solid objects such as rocks, ground, road surfaces, concrete abutments, steel posts, etc., they can become damaged, bent or even broken.
We at Schulte believe we provide the highest quality blades in the industry. Our rotary cutter blades are manufactured to exacting standards and specifications that require strict chemical, strength and performance characteristics. In addition to the industry standards, these characteristics include charpy V-notch, decarburization, microstructure, chemical analysis, shot peening and fatigue testing.
Chamfered blade bolt holes help alleviate any weak points in the blade bolt area. A stress riser is created when the blade bolt hole is punched out. The abrupt 90 degree change in direction is highly susceptible to increased stresses that may cause cracks or failures in the blade. Schulte wants to provide optimum blade design and construction so you can enjoy longer blade life.
