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

"I'm a rancher with a lot of mowing to do. When its time to mow, I need to go. Maintenance and downtime was something we always had with batwing rotary cutters. We purchased a Schulte 5026 26 ft. batwing mower 2 years ago. This cutter has been over a lot of acres and our down time and maintenance has only included 2 flat tires and greasing. We like Schulte mowers and have recently purchased a XH1500 Series 3 15 ft. cutter. We highly recommend Schulte mowers. They are just plain dependable." 

Bill Inhofe Rancher, Muskogee, OK USA
