What do our customers say?

Don't just take our word for's what some of our customers say about their Schulte...

"We bought our FX530 in Jan 2016. It is set up with the full mulching kit for mulching stubble. It has been dry hired into the Gilgandra Coonamble area. The machine has done approx 3400ha of predominantly cereal stubble. It has also done some sorghum and pasture topping. 

I am a machinery technician and we own a small farm at Curban. I am very particular about reliability, maintenance and ease of use. We have found the FX 530 reliable and has done the required job very well. We replaced all the rotating blades at 2600ha. 

The drought has now hurt us as we have had very little work last year or this and looks like nothing next year either. Hence the machine is now for sale. I would like to keep it, but the bank wants their money. When conditions change, I would certainly like to get another one."
