When you want to cut the grass (or crop residue) in a hurry…

At 42 feet wide, Schulte Industries has made a tool for anybody who wants to mow acres in a hurry. (It might require removing some trees, but just think about how fast you could mow the yard.)

The Englefield, Saskatchewan-based manufacturer says its FX-742 mower is the largest rotary cutter built in the world.

As Schulte’s Hal Carnago explains in the video below, the mower is designed to help manage crop residue, including cereal crops, corn and cotton, as well as typical grass mowing, for example, at airports and on CRP land in the U.S.

He notes they sold several of the wide units in Saskatchewan this spring to producers cleaning up crop that was flattened by snow last fall.

To get under a three metre maximum transport width, the 42 foot mower has a five-plex design.

Carnago discusses potential applications, horsepower requirements, and whether there’d ever be demand for an even wider mower in the video below, recorded at the 2017 Farm Progress Show in Regina:
