Schulte Slasher & Rotary Cutter FX-209

The Most Versatile 9' Push / Pull Mower on the Market.

Schulte Cutters are renowned for being the toughest and most dependable slashers on the market. The FX-209 continues this tradition, offering versatility at an economical price. It is an excellent choice for slashing weeds, orchards, plantations, and roadsides. Schulte owners appreciate the high-performance features of their cutter:

  • A single domed 7-gauge continuously welded deck offering many benefits:
    • It is extremely easy to clean,
    • The dome prevents water pooling and rusting,
    • It helps shed debris as you cut, and
    • Weighs less than double decks.
  • Push or pull capability with linkage, trailing and semi-mount swing hitch options.
  • Semi-mount swing hitch allows the unit to be hydraulically shifted 33 cm to the left or right to get under trees or around obstacles.
  • 540 or 1000 RPM category 6 drive options at the same price.
  • Our drivelines utilise the latest heavy-duty and extremely reliable Bondioli gearboxes with oil level sight glass on the rotor boxes for convenient maintenance checks.
  • 210 HP rotor gearboxes.
  • 6 mm x 100 mm deck protection rings protect the deck from blade impact.
  • Spun formed 7-gauge stump jumpers (round skid pans) ensure durability and balance.
  • Schulte Industries exclusive Pentagon Blade Bolt provides maximum anti rotational resistance where the blade is fastened to the stump jumper pans.
  • Standard with Super Suction 1/2" x 4” blades that 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.
  • Optional mulching blades available.
  • Deep side skirts and high blade tip speeds for the best cutting performance and material flow.
  • Safety first with double chains and half rubber flaps front and rear and a durable driveline cover.
  • Twin castor wheels with puncture-proof laminated or heavy-duty forklift tyre options.
  • Two-piece replaceable skid shoes made from 10 mm thick abrasion resistant steel.

FX-209 standard linkage model with puncture-proof laminated tyres and double safety chains. Aussie spec models also feature half rubber flaps over the chains to further prevent debris escaping and to improve cutting performance.

The FX-209 can be mounted to the front of the tractor using the tractors front linkage arms or Schulte's specially designed front mount frame - no more sore neck when slashing! 

Heavy duty stump-jumper blade pans and deck protection rings are standard.

The deep deck and high blade speeds allow the FX-209 to cope with tall, thick grass.

FX-209 Side Eject Option

Our side eject option has been designed in Australia for plantations, orchards and horticulturalists requiring cut material to be spread under trees as a mulch layer. The system on the FX-209 consists of an adjustable exit chute and twin adjustable gauge wheels fitted to the front of the deck. When not used as a side eject cutter, the chute is removed and replaced with a side skirt shield to meet safety regulations. The side eject option is available now and made to order.

FX-209 Side Eject configured with forklift tyres and mulching blades.

The adjustable flap on our side eject system gives control over material throw.

Under deck reinforcing and mulching blades. The mulching blades give a finer cut that the standard updraft blades.

The side eject option on the FX-209 includes dual gauge wheels that are height adjustable to minimise ground scalping.
