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

5026 Rotary Cutter

"We are a 5000 acre Texas South Plain cotton farm. We purchased a Schulte 5026 rotary cutter 5 years ago. All of our cotton acres are shredded annually plus we mow a lot of CRP. Shredded or mowed material is evenly distributed. The machine has more than exceeded our expectations. Maintenance on our Schulte is minimal; a set of blades lasts well through a season. The Schulte 5026 is very operator friendly, which makes it easy for any of our operators to run the machine."
