Schulte Slasher & Rotary Cutter FX1800

  1. A single domed 7 gauge continuously welded deck. This makes the cutter extremely easy to clean, prevents water pooling and rusting, helps shed debris as you cut and weighs less than double decks.
  2. 5” blade overlap and high blade tip speeds.
  3. A four gearbox drive line with independent slip clutches. The FX-1800 utilizes heavy-duty and extremely reliable Bondioli gearboxes. The splitter has 1 3/4” 20 spline input and output shafts and is rated at 260hp. The centre and wing boxes have 1 3/4” 20 spline input shafts, 2 3/8” down shafts and are rated at 210hp.
  4. An 80 degree CV shaft allows for smooth power transmission during tight turns. The CV for 540 rpm is a Category 6 and for 1000 rpm is a Category 5. The driveline on the cutter itself employs self-adjusting friction clutches to protect your investment and always operate at peak performance. All clutches are located under the main shield for ease of service. An Optional Non CV Equal Angle Hitch is available in 540 RPM.
  5. Spun formed 7 gauge stump jumpers (round skid pans) ensure durability and balance.
  6. Available in 540 or 1000 rpm drive.
