For producers with more moderate feeding cycles, but still require a large-capacity mixer, the VT 180 & 1100 models are an ideal choice. These two models range in capacity from 800 to 1,100 cubic feet, and are available as a truck or trailer configuration.
KUHN Knight VT 180 & VT 1100 twin-auger Vertical Maxx® mixers are ideal for large dairy and beef producers who want to place quality rations in front of their animals. The VT models are rugged, dependable, large-capacity mixers designed for moderate-use cycles of around 4 to 5 hours per day.
Features may include:Cone-Style Auger & Kicker Design
Cone-style augers provide superior feed movement for faster, more complete mixing and processing. The smooth, continuous auger flighting creates a rolling feed action that improves mixing. The top cover of the auger has a steep angle to aid in bale movement when processing round bales and to prevent feed from sitting on top of the auger between mixes. The curved, bolt-on kicker is formed rearward to efficiently charge the door with feed the entire way on each pass for even discharge and decreased unloading time. The adjustable, replaceable lead-flighting scraper is angled to guide feed up the auger flighting for efficient movement.Hardened Knives
Large, 15” or 20”, replaceable hay cutting knives are available to best handle the material to be processed. The knives have two positions to adjust the aggressiveness of the knife angle. Versatility of knife length, angle and position allow for an optimal setting with a wide variety of ration ingredients.Efficient Mixing Chamber
Straighter sides, smoother curves and steeper baffles help promote a fast, complete mix for a fluffy, palatable ration. No preprocessing or special loading is required for round or square bales making it easy to load and use. Faster auger speeds also provide quicker, more complete cleanout.Adjustable Hay Stops
The adjustable hay stops provide flexibility in processing to provide you with the cut length necessary to reach the optimal nutritional value you’re striving for. This adjustability makes hay processing more efficient and helps minimize overprocessing.Large Unloading Doors
For unmatched feed flow, these mixers feature the largest discharge door available in the industry. The discharge linkage allows for rapid opening and closing of the door.
