The new SCH top and bottom roller guides allow more flexibility on the platform while decreasing the likelihood of material buildup around the rollers. 

As before, they continue to reduce the friction on the knifeback and allows the knife to run more smoothly. It also results in less knife load and power requirements for the knife drive or wobble box.

The new short SCH EasyCut guards improve crop flow in no-till soybeans.  They are recommended for flex grain platforms. 

The combination of the SCH EasyCut guard and cutter bar knife create a cutting system which can be used for cutting almost everything in the world of forestry and agriculture. Even onions or hedges present no problem to the SCH EasyCut system. The design of the EasyCut guard also eliminates hold down clamps, shims and all of the adjusting that goes with them. Unlike other cutting systems, there’s no upward pressure on the knife. With the section alternately cutting against the top and bottom of the guards, the cutting edges stay close together. Because the knife remains balanced, you get top cutting performance from start to finish. And with our system always in balance, it keeps cutting under more severe conditions, it’s easier to drive, and we have less breakage.

ProCut Sections   Stones and dirt are tough on knife sections.  They not only increase section wear but can also damage other parts of the platform.  Knife section quality is therefore of extreme importance.   Schumacher Pro Cut knife sections are completely thru-hardened, therefore extremely tough.  They don’t bend.  Therefore, when hitting large stones or other objects, damage to guards is eliminated which is not the case with regular sections.

The sections are fastened to the knifeback with a special serrated bolt and a flange nut.  The conically shaped and serrated body of the bolt locks tightly in the section and knifeback hole.  A tight and secure connection is the result.  At the same time, sections can be quickly changed.

Double Guards  In the last decades, two types of double guards have become dominant in the market: the forged guard and the Schumacher steel guard.  What makes the SCH Easy Cut steel guard so special?  The SCH Easy Cut guard is manufactured using a special alloy steel.  A subsequent special hardening process gives the guard extremely high hardness, durability and wear life.  Another advantage is the much higher vertical and lateral strength of the guard.  Less guard breakage.  The angled cutting edges of the guard hold the crop material better, resulting in a cleaner cut and a better flow of material.  This also results in less power needed to cut the material.
