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.

Schulte Industries manufactures Rock Pickers, Snow Blowers, Tillage Equipment and Rotary Cutters

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."
