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.

5026 Rotary Cutter

“We have 1260 Acres of grass to cut (with the Schulte 5026 26’ cutter). It’s very, very nice, it’s cut our mowing down quite significantly. What used to take half hour to forty five minutes for a lap, it’s now taking seven to eight minutes. It’s greatly increased our production as far as maintaining the airport property goes. It looks like it was cut with a lawn mower, it’s not a fine cut but it looks like a manicured yard. It’s definitely a hearty machine, we enjoy the product it’s a very good product”.
