equipment Hay-Retention Ring

 The steel hay-retention ring helps contain large round bales during processing and reduces hay spillage more effectively compared to similar options on competitive models. Capacity Belt Extension

 A belt extension, added to the top of the mixing tub, increases capacity by about 10%. It also improves hay containment, and rubber construction is durable and pliable for long life. Flat Chain & Slat Front Conveyor – Front

 The flat, front conveyor option is simple to operate and offers convenient feeding from either side of the machine on trailer models. Hydraulic side shift is standard and gives you the ability to shift the conveyor a total of 16” from side to side for accurate feed placement.

Either or both ends of the flat conveyor can be fitted with a hanging belt with magnets to catch small metal fragments. The hanging belt also helps to even feed flow off the end of the conveyor. A fixed tip-off, with magnets, can be added to catch small metal fragments present in the feed and help prevent hardware disease. Side Belt Conveyor

 An optional belt conveyor can be added for easy and consistent placement of feed at varying heights including the filling of mobile feed carts. The belt offers quiet operation and consistent feed flow. Belt conveyors are able to run steeper versus a chain and slat because you can run the conveyor faster, depending on the materials. The low profile sides allow the conveyor to fold up tighter to the machine for a more narrow transport width. An optional deflector helps with placement of the feed and provides an option for magnets.

Kuhn VT 100 Series Stainless Steel Liner

 A stainless steel liner provides extra protection in the lower part of the chamber where most wear occurs. Stainless steel baffle liners are also available. Incline Chain & Slat Conveyor – Front

 The incline conveyor option is available with the choice of either right or left side unloading on trailer models. This option allows the flexibility for both floor feeding and feeding into bunks of various heights where a longer or higher reach is needed for precise feed placement. A fixed tip-off, with magnets, can be added. The magnets work to catch small metal fragments present in the feed and help prevent hardware disease. Slide Tray

 The side-discharge slide tray on the VSL & VT models has simple hydraulic controls and helps guide the feed further away from the tire path. Discharge magnets help catch metal fragments to prevent hardware. Side Chain & Slat Conveyor

 Optional side conveyors provide the ultimate in durability and long life. Heavy-duty components ensure reliable service, even in extreme use conditions. Multiple conveyor length options offer unmatched flexibility to tailor the discharge to your needs. A fixed tip-off with magnets can be added to catch small metal fragments present in the feed and help prevent hardware disease.

Kuhn VT 100 Series Viewing Platform

 All models feature a standard observation ladder to easily view the inside of the mixing chamber. Front door, trailer models also offer an optional viewing platform for a convenient, comfortable place to check mixing progress.

Kuhn VT 100 Series High-Wear Components

 Optional DuraMix® hardened auger flighting provides enhanced wear resistance and longer auger life in the toughest conditions. The flighting is made of high-carbon steel throughout, with hardened outer edges for unmatched durability. Optional 30”, stainless steel side and baffle liners provide extra protection in the lower part of the chamber where most wear occurs.

your benefits

Superior Feed Movement

Kuhn VT 100 Series Cone-Style Auger & Kicker Design

  Cone-style augers provide superior feed movement for faster, more complete mixing and processing. The smooth, continuous auger flighting (1) creates a rolling feed action that improves mixing. The curved, bolt-on kicker (2) 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 (3) is angled to guide feed up the auger flighting for efficient movement.

Kuhn VT 100 Series 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.

// A: Knife set in for slicing and cutting

// B: Knife set out for grabbing and tearing

Kuhn VT 100 Series Efficient Mixing Chamber

  Improvements to the mixing chamber work in combination with the redesigned augers to increase feed movement. 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.

Kuhn VT 100 Series 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.

Simple, Dependable Drive
Kuhn VT 100 Series Straight Drive

 VT 132 and VT 144 Models feature a straight-drive planetary system that provides simplicity for lower torque applications.

Kuhn VT 100 Series Patented Split Drive

 The patented drive system on the VT 156 and 168 models consists of a 2-speed, split-drive gearbox, two planetary gearboxes and two torque-disconnect PTOs. This system provides reliable performance and long service life with a simple and quiet design.

The 2-speed, split-drive gearbox provides the flexibility of high and low speeds without adding another gearbox. It allows for a lower horsepower and easier starting speed (28 rpm in low) while also having a high speed for fast mixing and more complete cleanout (41 rpm in high).

The gearbox can be shifted manually on the machine or with an in-cab electric shift option for operator convenience.

Kuhn VT 100 Series Heavy-Duty Gearboxes

The twin planetaries are designed to provide dependable performance and long life. The drive systems allow the use of single-stage planetaries, which produces far less heat for easier cooling.

Kuhn VT 100 Series Easy Accessibility

 Easily pull the planetary from the top of the mixer for improved and easier service. This easy accessibility is especially helpful for truck mount models as it does not require dismounting the mixer from the chassis.

Tailor to Your Operation

Kuhn VT 100 Series Multiple Door Options

Various door configuration options on trailed and stationary models offer flexibility to fit a variety of feeding situations. The large discharge openings provide fast, even unloading from front, side and rear door locations for maximum efficiency.  

Choose a front door for clear visibility of the material coming out of the door. The front cross conveyor uses rugged components for unmatched dependability. A heavy-duty, steel floor on the VT 132-168, along with the heaviest conveyor chain in the industry, helps ensure long life and less down time. New discharge options provide the ultimate in versatility to match most feeding situations.  

Truck and stationary models offer a left-side door, while trailer models offer doors on either or both sides. The large openings allow fast unloading with comparable feed flow out of one door that many competitive machines get with two.  

A rear commodity door is available on VT 144-168 models. The large opening provides fast discharge, even with high-roughage premixes. A discharge tray is included on truck models to direct material flow for clean, accurate feed placement.

Kuhn VT 100 Series Trailer, Truck or Stationary Configuration

To suit your operation’s needs, KUHN VT 100 Series mixers are available in a trailer, truck-mounted or stationary configuration.  

Trailer models are the most popular configuration as they are the most economical and versatile. Being detachable allows the tractor to be used elsewhere on the farm when not being used for feeding.  

Truck-mounted models are a suitable option for those that have to feed cows at several different locations, with large travel distances. This option allows a feeder to quickly get from the mixing location to the feed bunk and back again.  

For operations looking to maximize feeding efficiency and mixer throughput, the VT 144 twin-auger mixer is available in a stationary configuration. Stationary mixers are ideal for producers with a centralized feeding location, who utilize a mobile feed cart delivery system, such conveyors or feed carts.
