Rotary Cutters

  • PROCUT

    2015 sees the rollout of Radium Engineering’s third generation Rotary Cutters: new models featuring a host of new features to improve functionality and versatility.  The Generation III ProCut Rotary Cutters received a complete overhaul while retaining the basic principles that have made them so successful. The Radium design team enhanced the ergonomics and cosmetic appearances and also focussed on the cutting and drive line systems, making it vital for determining the quality of the crop.

    The new blade system incorporates the principles of the Schulte Rotary Cutters: their tried and tested blades and blade bolts increases the longevity and performance of the machine. The newly designed ultra-heavy duty spinner plates increases the blade movement whilst decreasing stresses on the drive line.

    Radium Engineering introduced a higher blade tip speed for a cleaner, more effective cut. It is powered by imported, extra heavy duty gearboxes with high torque and power ratings. This will supersede the output power rating of the average tractor used in front of the differently sized machines.

    The new PTO shafts are oversized with pre-torqued and self-adjusting slip-clutches to ensure the correct tension is always applied to the clutches. This ensures accurate slipping and prevents any damages to the gearbox.

    New safety chains in the front and the rear of the machine stop foreign objects from exiting the working zone and causing damage to the tractor. It also reduces incidents that can result in injury to bystanders. The new safety chain system allows the machine to be operated in both forward and backward operations for bush clearing and applications where front mounted 3-point hitches are applicable.  New hitches have been installed to fit all category II hitches. A new floating system has been incorporated that works in conjunction with the new trailing wheels and height control system, ensuring a constant and even cut.

    • Ultra robust frame and body construction keeps the deck of the machine rigid while holding the drive line and blade mechanisms in place, while keeping the operator safe from any flying objects.
    • Detachable deflector plates is inserted below the deck around the blade cutting systems which in turn holds the material for a greater period which increased mulching effect
    • Adjustable hitches are mounted on an independent frame and allows the operator to move the hitches up to 150mm off centre.
    • Floating hitch keeps the machine straight and level and independent from the tractors top link to follow the terrain more constantly and evenly.
    • Heavy duty drive line comprises of pre-torqued, self-adjusting PTO slip clutches coupled on to imported heavy duty gearboxes to make for a low maintenance solution without human error.
    • Blades are strengthened through a hardening process and then shot peened to introduce compressive surface stresses over the entire length of the blade, which enhances durability and extends fatigue life of the blade.
    • Bolts has an exclusive pentagon anti-rotational resistance where the blade fastens to the jumper pans.
    • Deck ring is fitted between the blades and the deck which stops the blades rising when obstacles are encountered and also helps with material flow.

  • SCHULTE FIXED KNIFE TECHNOLOGY

    Adopting all the characteristics of the Flex-Wing Rotary Cutters, Fixed Knife Technology is introduced by fitting two blades, one above another, on each side of the cutter bar that replaces the jumper pan unit. Stationary fixed knives are then strategically positioned under the deck of the cutter, whereby the two knives pass over and under the fixed knife, slamming the crop residue into the fixed knife. This material is then broken up and distributed evenly across the work width of the machine by making use of baffle plates. Regardless of the type of cutting job occurs on your farm, Radium Engineering has an efficient and reliable cutting solution to get the job done.

    The points of each rotating blade split in two and pass by both sides of a fixed blade. The cut plant material or crop residues is then pulled in and carved up. This cutting machinery is constant and reliable, which makes it ideal for cutting large areas of row crops.

    The fixed blades are mounted on shear bolts, while all rotating blades are protected by slip clutches. It is just as handy for fruit and grape farmers that want to shred branches and leaves for compost during the pruning season.

    Also take a look at Schulte’s Flex-Wing Rotary Cutters. For those with smaller-scale enterprises, Radium’s own ProCut Rotary Cutter and Econocut Cutter offer a slightly smaller set of equipment with the same standard of quality

    • 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 manoeuvrable with easy 3m 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 spacing’s 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 and 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 pruning’s to mulch branches.

  • SCHULTE FLEX-WING ROTARY CUTTER

    Radium Engineering has introduced a new range of Flex-Wing Rotary Cutters from the Canadian manufacturers Schulte. The Flex-Wing Rotary Cutters offer practicality when it comes to large areas of various materials in a multitude of terrains and circumstances.

    Whether the farmer is cutting grass or wheat straw, or maneuvering through vineyards and orchards, the solution is now offered with various features and accessories. The material can be evenly distributed over the working width of the rotary cutter, which enables the material to be evenly dried and equally broken down.

    Due to the innovative design, minimal horsepower is required to work a greater area and to achieve huge cost reductions.  The Flex-Wing design encourages a constant and even cut over the entire work width of the machine, regardless of the terrain as each section independently cuts its area without leaving an overlap.

    Also take a look at other rotary cutter, like the Schulte’s Fixed Knife Technology. For those with smaller-scale enterprises, Radium’s own ProCut Rotary Cutter and Econocut Cutter offer a slightly smaller set of equipment with the same standard of quality.

    • Domed Deck is constructed out of 5mm thick material and is continuously welded.  This design makes the cutter easy to clean and prevents pooling of water and rusting and helps shed debris faster and easier during operation.
    • Increased Frame Depth improves material flow underneath the machine and reduces input power requirements.
    • Heavy Duty Stub Axles comprise of extremely durable hubs and spindles that hold the wheels and carry the weight of the machine.
    • Deck Protections Rings protects the deck from the blades, should an encounter with a foreign object cause the blades to jump up.
    • Wheel System employs heavy-duty turnbuckles which link the central wheel system to the wheel system on the folding wings and ensures a constant and level cutting height throughout the machine.
    • Heavy Duty Drive Line System is a robust system that ensures peak performance at all times and is compiled of a splitter gearbox and right-angel gearboxes joined together by heavy-duty PTO shafts with self-adjusting slip clutches.
    • Single Centre Lock-up System allows the operator to lock the lifting cylinder into place for transport.
    • Suspension comprises of either a heavy duty rubber puck system or compression spring to eliminate shock on the tractor as well as on the machine.
    • Jumper pans are a spun formed pan that fits over the spinner bar, which allows the machine to move over foreign obstacles when encountered during cutting.
