Schulte Slasher & Rotary Cutter FX318 – features  


Schulte Cutters are legendary throughout the mowing industry for being the toughest and most dependable. The FX-318 continues this renowned tradition at an economical price.

Greaseable hingeline turnbuckles help to reduce wear and aid in long life of the cutter’s parallel lifting mechanism.

FX-318 side skirts are 13 5/8" deep. This additional room under the deck, along with high blade tip speeds, allows for a better cut and better material flow.

We use extemely strong and durable 517 hubs and spindles with built in metal seal guards on this cutter to tackle any type of terrain.

A one piece center shield allows for easy and full access to drivelines, clutches and gearboxes on the center section.

This cutter has replaceable skid shoes which are made out of 3/8" thick Abrasion Resistant steel.

The center and wing wheel standards are constructed from heavy duty large 5 9/16" O.D. x 3/8" thick HSS round tubing.

Schulte has many hitch options including clevis hitch, an adjustable clevis, precision hitch or solid tongue to help create a better fit & reduce wear on your tractor's drawbar.

Schulte Industries Super Suction 1/2" x 4” blades leave nothing behind. Schulte blades are strengthened through a hardening process which increases the impact strength of the blade. The blade is chamfered around the blade bolt hole to provide a smooth transition of surfaces around the high stress blade bolt area. The blades are also shot peened to induce beneficial compressive surface stresses over the entire length of the blade.

This enhances the durability and extends the fatigue life of the blade. The cutting edge is forged giving it a stronger and tougher edge thereby extending the life of the blade.

Schulte Industries exclusive Pentagon Blade Bolt provides maximum anti rotational resistance where
the blade is fastened to the stump jumper pans.

All pivot points use 1" greaseable pins.

Deck rings are standard on the FX-318. Deck rings protect the cutter deck from the blades rising when obstacles are encountered.
