Cutting edge force

A demonstration of the Schulte mulching machine from AgroCentre took place on the premises of the Avangard farming cooperative in the Ivanovo oblast.

The Ivanovo Agrarian Leasing Organisation chose this farm as one of the closest with fallow lands. The FX315 mulching machine faced a difficult task of crushing the thickets of a birch wood for subsequent treatment by disc harrows. It did a fine job on fallow lands with small trees. Just a few passes were enough to realise how quickly and thoroughly Schulte operates. After its pass, the trees were cut down to the root and crushed for follow-on treatment.

“The Schulte mounted rotary mulcher is designed for mowing and crushing vegetation with a diameter of up to 9 cm,” said Alexander Baushin, sales manager of AgroCentreZakharovo LLC. “The adjustable height of treatment is above 3 cm from the ground, and the grip width is 4.6 m. The loosely fastened double blades on the rotor ensure an efficient cutting force.”

The mulcher is fitted with adjustable wheels thanks to which it finely follows all of the terrain irregularities. Unlike a drum-style mulcher, Schulte does not need a tractor with a second steer for moving in reverse.

The representatives of Ivagroleasing were pleased with operating the Schulte mulcher. They pointed out its high speed, grip width and simple design.
