Kuhn HP 160 ProPush®
Proven hydraulic ProPush® design…Now with higher capacity!

The KUHN Knight HP 160 ProPush® hydraulic push-type spreader is designed to haul and spread solid materials from dairies and feedlots, including gutter manure, yard scrapings, bedding pack and feedlot manure. The HP 160 features a heaped capacity of 600 ft3 (17 m3).

The new KUHN Knight HP 160 hydraulic push box spreader features the proven ProPush® design customers have come to love, just in a higher capacity, commercial duty package. The HP 160 with VertiSpread® vertical beaters is designed to haul and spread solid materials from dairies and feedlots, including gutter manure, yard scrapings, bedding pack and feedlot manure. The hydraulic push-type design means no apron chains, fewer moving parts and dependable service life.

The HP 160 joins the 2044 and 2054 ProPush hydraulic push box spreader family, but features new upgrades and a greater heaped capacity of 600 cubic feet. The all-steel welded frame on the HP 160 provides a solid foundation for the spreaders sides and floor. The solid weld-in tongue is cross-braced for strength and rigidity, while the updated pusher design has increased the clearance between the tractor and implement for greater maneuverability. VertiSpread vertical beaters equipped on the KUHN Knight HP 160 provide customers with a uniform 25-30 foot spread pattern with excellent material breakup. Poly floor and sides minimize friction and deliver exceptional machine cleanout. For precise monitoring and application tracking, an optional scale system is available.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Thrown Object Shield

The standard thrown object shield better protects the tractor and driver from flying debris. The grated design allows for easy viewing of the unloading process. Optional extensions provide greater protection by increasing both height and width.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Sequencing Valve

 An optional sequencing valve is highly recommended and can be added to the HP 160 to protect against accidental pusher and gate collisions. It requires the gate to be all the way up, before it allows the pusher to be engaged. The orientation minimizes material buildup to maintain proper function of the sequencing valve.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Four wheel hydraulic disc brakes are optional. Hydraulic disc brakes are more reliable in manure applications than drum or air brakes since they are easier to keep free of foreign material and have fewer moving parts. The hydraulic brakes are activated using the hydraulic braking port provided on the tractor.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Scale System

An optional 5-point scale system allows the operator to accurately determine how much material is in the spreader, as well as how much is being applied to the field.

Units equipped with electronic scales can also be fitted with an optional scale indicator, the TopCon/Digi-Star NT 560. This allows an operator to better manage the material they are spreading, by understanding the rate at which the material is leaving the spreader. This also allows the operator to accurately apply the desirable tons/acre.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Hitch Options

The HP 160 comes with the choice of a swivel clevis or spade-style hitch with or without scales. Both are easily replaceable or reversed for greater service capability.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Electric Speed Flow Control

An option for tractors that do not have flow control capabilities, the electric flow control allows the operator to easily adjust the apron speed from inside the cab to suit specific materials or speeds. This provides increased flexibility when spreading a variety of materials.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Manual Flow Control

For tractors that don’t have flow control capabilities, the manual flow control allows the operator to easily adjust the apron speed to suit specific materials or speeds. This increases flexibility when spreading a variety of materials.

Durable Construction for Long Life

  Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® All-Steel, Welded Construction

The all-steel welded ProPush® construction provides a solid framework and includes a reinforced tongue that pulls directly from the full-width axle. This results in a stronger, more dependable spreader since the unit is pulled from the axle rather than the front of the box.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Solid Weld-In Tongue

A solid weld-in tongue provides structure and is an anchor for the pusher cylinder. The tongue is crossbraced for strength and rigidity. Design enhancements allows for more clearance between the tractor quick hitch and implement, improving maneuverability.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Integrated Welded I-Beam Construction

An integrated welded I-beam construction ties the box together while providing a strong backbone for the pusher panel as it travels back and forth.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Heavy-Duty Tandem Axle

A rugged, tandem axle allows the unit to travel across a wide range of terrain with ease. A 10-bolt bogie system utilizes a simpler design with fewer moving parts compared to a sprung undercarriage, which reduces maintenance requirements and increases dependability. Improved axle pod design features a one-piece axle tube to handle additional weight. Two tire choices are available for the HP 160, truck and high-flotation tires.

Fast, Efficient Unloading
Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® ProPush® Design
The ProPush box spreaders are designed with simplicity in mind. The hydraulic push-type design means no apron chains, fewer moving parts, faster unloading and dependable service life.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Piggyback Hydraulic Cylinders

This unique cylinder design provides smooth and uniform travel through the entire stroke and rapid cylinder retraction spreading is completed. The cylinders are completely protected by a structural tube member. This stops manure from falling directly onto the cylinder which helps prevent premature seal failure.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Improved Pusher Design

The redesigned pusher on the HP 160 features a bird beak design that allows for better cleanout of the load. This also allows the mounting point of the cylinders to be moved forward, resulting in better clearance between the tractor and implement as well as the ability to add a CV PTO option.

HP160_Pusher_02.jpg Friction-Resistant Polylaminate Floor & Sides

 A two-piece, ⅝” solid polylaminate floor and single piece, 5/8” polylaminate sides provides more strength and durability than individual tongue and groove boards while reducing friction. This means less power is required for unloading versus steel or wooden floors and sides. The polylaminate floor provides impact resistance when dropping heavy loads into the spreader. The plastic floor and sides also reduces winter freeze-down issues.

Heavy-Duty Vertical Beaters

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Wide, Consistent Spread Pattern

VertiSpread® vertical beaters provide a wide spread pattern in an array of materials. These beaters are designed to spread material in a 25-30 feet pattern at rates ranging from 5-30 tons per acre. VertiSpread vertical beaters are designed particularly for operations that spread a wide variety of solid materials such as penpack or material heavy with dirt.

The beater module can easily be removed for storage while stockpiling, providing you with greater machine versatility.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Heavy-Duty Beater Module

The HP 160 comes with a heavy-duty vertical beater module, featuring 5/8” (1.6 cm) flighting and hardened beater tips. Power to the beaters is routed through a fully enclosed Berma gearbox, providing a strong and reliable power supply with low maintenance requirements.

Kuhn HP 160 ProPush® Beater Drive - PTO Options

Power from the tractor to the unit is transferred through a center-mounted driveline that operates at 1,000 RPM PTO and either 1 3/8” or 1 3/4” to easily adapt to the customer’s tractor. This is accompanied by an option of CV or Non-CV PTO. The CV PTO option is designed for operators that spread at low rates or operators who wish to continue spreading into headland turns.
