Rotary Cutters

  • 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.
