The universal cutting system
For perfect cuts
The Schumacher cutting system
Your success factor
The cutting systems from Schumacher play pivotal roles in successful combining and getting the maximum performance from combines. The EasyCut systems from Schumacher are at work around the world where ever farmers are harvesting grain, soybeans and rice. All parts of the system are bolted for easy handling and replacement, and the modular design suits all common cutter bars, offering individual solutions, especially for extra wide headers. The sections in the overlapping areas are available in many variations, along with special overlapping ‘shoes’, providing customized solutions for individual needs.
Excellent cutting force
Smooth and quiet operation
Universal system for all combines and crops
Great resistance to wear
Twice as sharp
EasyCut II section
The ProCut sections are mounted in the unique Schumacher face-up/face-down arrangement that ensures an extremely smooth operation of the knife.
Pro Cut sections are hardened and galvanized
Optimized teeth suit all harvest conditions
Easy replacement, bolt-on assembly
Sections with 7, 11 and 14 tpi variations for different crops and harvest conditions
The standard ProCut section is a synonym for perfect cuts in grass, grain, soybeans and sunflower. These sections are the perfect solution for any crop and harvest situation.
ProCut air SECTION
This lightweight section from SCHUMACHER is suitable for all cutter bars and cutting systems. Compatible with any other sections, they have a major impact on the overall performance of the machine. Less weight translates into a number of benefits: less strain on the drive components, reduced vibrations on the header, better efficiencies from higher cutting frequencies, higher work rates and longer service lives of all components in the driveline.
The Special sections from Schumacher were designed to meet special customer needs and cut special crops like sunflowers. Special sections are also found on the outer ends of a knife and where cutting widths overlap.
Gripping and precise
Cutting both ways
For maximum stability and height control, the EasyCut II guards are bolted to the top and bottom of the angle bar and are supported by a wear plate. The Schumacher guards have top and bottom cutting edges for balanced control of the sections.
Extremely wear-resistant surface and flexible core
Top and bottom cutting edges
Special tempering process applied
Great stability at maximum flexibility
Precision gaps for excellent knife control
12 mm, 14 mm and 17 mm sizes for optimal adjustment to the angle bar and flex bar
Standard double guards
SCHUMACHER guards have top and bottom cutting edges for balanced control of the sections. These guards are typically used in cereal combining and are available in 12 mm, 14 mm and 17 mm lengths.
Short double guards
The super short double guards are typically used in soybeans. Their rounded tips prevent the accumulation of material. The shorter length allows the guards to work very close to the ground.
The Specialty Guards from SCHUMACHER are used in the zone near the knifehead, in the overlap zone on cutter bars with dual drives, and to cut special crops.
Counteracting the cutting force
The strong counterpart
Any force needs a counteracting force to maintain a balanced system. If this is absent in the cutting system, the cut will run out of control. In the cutting system, this counteracting role is played by the wear plate which guides the rear of the section from below. Wear plates are individual components that are easy to replace.
Available in 4 mm, 5 mm and 6 mm variations for optimal alignment of the cutting system on the angle bar.
In combination with roller guides, the wear plate also serves as a spacer plate on EasyCut II roller guide systems.
The optimal knife guiding system
The sandwich system
The roller guides the knife assembly ensuring smooth operation of the cutting system.
Maintenance-free ball bearing roller guides
Reduced vibration and friction
Reduced wear in the entire system
The top roller guide ensures the knife stays level under load and balances the sections as they move through the guards, extending the lifespan of all components.
Recommended for all headers
Replacing the wear plates, the bottom roller guide reduces friction and input power to drive the knife.
