Fixed Knife Technology

  • Using Schulte’s Fixed Knife Technology, crop residue is slammed into stationary fixed knives, mounted in strategic positions under the deck of the cutter by free swinging blade sets moving at up to 16,000 feet per minute.
  • Mounted baffle distribution plates direct the mulched material out of the cutter with an even spread.
  • Shattered stalks or crop residue decompose rapidly because the shattered material is opened to microbes and weathering.
  • The stationary fixed knives are protected by shear bolts which allow them to pivot when required. The free swinging blades are each protected individually by slip clutches.
  • Schulte flex wing cutters are maneuverable with easy 3m (9.8’) transport width, even on the largest models. Many competitive flail choppers are very wide to transport or must be end towed.
  • Schulte flex wing cutters have built in suspension to handle the roughest ground conditions.
  • Schulte flex wing cutters are designed to work in most row crop spacings by using adjustable wheel standards or axle spindles.
  • Optional rubber belting on each model helps to create more vacuum under the cutter deck and control blow out of material which can then fall on top of the deck.
  • Fixed knives with free swinging updraft bottom blades are to be used in dry material, such as corn, sun flowers, rice, oil seed, cereal crops and grass seed straw.
  • Fixed knives with free swinging flat bottom blades are generally used to cut green material or wet cotton stalks.
  • Fixed knives can be easily removed to cut green grass, pasture or set aside making the Schulte cutter a multipurpose tool as compared to traditional flail choppers.
  • Fixed Knife units can also be used in orchard or vineyard prunings to mulch branches.

Shredding crop residue after harvest allows you to raise the combine header and run less material through the combine separator allowing the combine to travel faster while also saving fuel and improving separation of crop residue.

About Us
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.

Testimonials

Kelly Hall C & H Mowing

XH-1500 Rotary Cutters

“We’ve found a mower that will stand the test of time, without a doubt the best mower we’ve ever had. We’ve been in business since 1983, we bought four Schulte mowers in ‘94 and a couple more in ‘97 and before we knew it they were all green, we didn’t have any more red ones or yellow ones. The biggest thing we’ve found with Schulte over the competition we used prior to ‘94 is we didn’t have to get the service truck out to the mow route every day when they’d be down for an hour or two once a week on average, if not more. When you’re out on the highway getting paid by the job not the hour, you’re not making money when they’re sitting still. The series three has been almost bullet proof, that’s on highway mowing you know, running 100 pound semi recaps and drive line knuckles through them. I’ve hit three bowling balls in my career, we test them out. I like to give credit where credit is due, you guys have a good product.”
