KUHN Knight PS 100 Series ProSpread® apron box spreaders, with heaped capacities ranging from 440-570 ftÂ³, are designed for feeder, cow/calf, and dairy operations that process a wide array of semi-solid and solid materials.
KUHN Knight PS 100 Series ProSpread manure spreaders, with heaped capacities ranging from 440-570 ftÂ³, help meet the changing needs of livestock and dairy producers. The all-welded box construction provides a solid framework. PS 100 Series spreaders, available with horizontal beaters, VertiSpread® vertical beaters or AccuSpread® spinner discharge, spread the toughest solid materials quickly and evenly with the hydraulically controlled, variable-speed apron. The simple, protected center driveline improves dependability while reducing maintenance. The solid, poly floor also eliminates corrosion concerns.
Features may include:All-Steel, Welded Construction
An all-steel construction provides the backbone and solid framework for these spreaders. This simple, yet effective design keeps the sides and beater panels aligned for the life of the machine. The all-welded construction includes a reinforced tongue that pulls directly from the axle for added strength and durability. An A-frame assembly keeps the sides and beater panels correctly aligned for strong box integrity. A round-tube bottom, on the rear, promotes self-cleaning by helping prevent material breakup.Center-Mounted Driveline
This simple design eliminates the need for extra chains and sprockets that are necessary for a side-mounted driveline. This simple design uses high-quality sealed bearings to provide reliable power delivery with lower maintenance requirements. The driveline is located underneath the unit, thus reducing the possibility of damage during loading.Dual-Apron Design
To ensure quality and dependability the PS 100 Series spreaders are equipped with a dual apron which helps to distribute the load more evenly. Customers have the choice of 667 X or XH Pintle apron chain, with an additional choice of a t-bar chain on the PS 150. The dual apron features offset 1 ½” x 2” steel slats which provide more consistent feeding of material. The dual apron also offers increased rigidity and longevity for both apron chains and slats. A hydraulic-driven, parallel-shaft gearbox provides reliable power with low maintenance. The parallel-shaft apron gearbox is designed for heavy-duty use. It is stronger, more efficient, requires less power and generates less heat than worm-drive gearboxes.High-Density, Two-Piece Poly Floor
A two-piece, 5/8” solid poly floor provides more strength and durability than individual tongue and groove boards while reducing friction. This means that less power is required for unloading versus alternative steel or wooden floors. The poly floor provides impact resistance when dropping heavy loads into the spreader. The two-piece design allows for expansion or contraction with changing temperatures. The plastic floor also reduces winter freeze-down issues to provide trouble-free service and long life.
