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.
