The polygonal shape of the front, rear and sides of the tub (specific to the PROFILE models) ensures smooth fodder circulation. The entire volume of the tub is used during chopping and mixing. There are no “dead” zones or fodder build-up: every m3 is used! The double-pitch angle of each auger guarantees quick breakdown of feed, no matter how full the machine already is.
7 hp per tonne of mixture: save money on fuel!
The lower power requirement of the PROFILE range is the result of several technological designs:
– Auger design: the continuous helix of the mixing auger gravitates the fodder from the bottom of the tub to the top without any forced movements. The mixing process is performed easily and smoothly for greater fuel efficiency.
– Auger diameter: the smaller the auger diameter, the shorter the scraper arm, resulting in reduced power requirement.
– Auger rotation direction: in twin-auger vertical mixer wagons, the augers rotate the mixture in a figure-of-eight pattern. This ensures regular fodder circulation and prevents material from blocking up against the sides of the tub for improved energy efficiency.
The optional two-speed gearbox further reduces the power requirement. This option is recommended for farmers who travel long distances with a loaded mixer wagon. Reducing the auger speed will allow for smooth start-up before the ration distribution phase.
The double-pitch angle of the auger enables quick breakdown of feed, no matter how full the machine already is.
To reduce power consumption, the PROFILE range is equipped with asymmetric knives which have a “self-cleaning” effect and also have a progressive-cutting knife edge for constant torque transfer. The continuous auger helix naturally moves the fodder from the bottom to the top of the tub for even mixing with no forced movements, reducing fuel consumption during the mixing process.
The auger material and design has been selected to provide maximum resistance to wear.
The mixing quality of KUHN TMR mixers is hitting new heights. Analysis of five samples taken at eight different points of a freshly distributed feed-out showed that, the dry matter variation coefficient is just 1.2% after a mixing time of only 3 minutes (PROFILE twin-auger vertical mixer submitted to German DLG test No. 6086F).
Homogeneous fodder distribution is guaranteed over the longest feed troughs, ensuring that each animal benefits from all the nutritional values of the ration.
The machine transmission is made up of a two-stage bearing therefore even during breakdown of a whole bale, stress is absorbed.
The combination of the pre-stressed subframeand the solid auger base provides maximum resistance to the load bearing in the bottom of the machine.
The unit is fitted on a collar which reaches up to approximately half the auger height, thus protecting the transmission from lateral forces exerted on the auger.
With the KUHN DG600 terminal, you optimise your time by carefully preparing the quantities of the different ration ingredients. Simply program the rations per head and per batch before loading the TMR mixer. In the following days, all you have to do is validate or modify the number of animals in each batch so that the weighing unit automatically indicates the quantities to be loaded. And if you want to take data management a step further, choose the KUHN DG8000-IC terminal.
KUHN DG600 programmable weighing system: your terminal’s interface is intuitive thanks to its double LCD screen that displays the weight and the name of the ingredient simultaneously. You can name your ingredients, distribution points and recipes. Your weighing terminal can store 99 recipes composed of 24 ingredients, and can be used to prepare 48 feed batches. You can program by head or by total weight. You can also generate ingredient consumption reports.
KUHN DG8000-IC programmable weighing system: your weighing terminal can store 99 recipes composed of 24 ingredients each, 99 ingredients, 128 feed batches and 48 customers. You can change the number of animals and the weight of the ingredients on the terminal. You program the terminal using the “DTM IC Cloud” software: by head, total number of animals or percentages.
The KUHN DG8000-IC weighing terminal is compatible with the NIR dry matter measuring system and the feed tracking system (automatic feeding per batch).
You can choose one of these digital devices to run the solutions offered along with the weighing terminals. You can take your new assistant with you everywhere! You’ll be able to control your mixer weighing system during loading and feeding, but also from your office.
The 2 applications KUHN Datamix VIEW and KUHN Datamix CONTROL are pre-installed on your weighing assistant. You’re bound to have all your needs met with the easy-to-use secondary display unit (KUHN Datamix VIEW) and the application that lets you program and perform all the functions of your mixer’s weighing unit from your assistant (KUHN Datamix CONTROL). You can access all the weighing data within a communication range of 90 m around your machine. The signal is automatically reset when you re-enter the range.
For each member of the herd to get their maximum feed intake, the feed-out of the mixed ration must be evenly mixed and distributed across the whole length of the feed passage. It’s important to reduce competition for feed between livestock in the same pen. All animals must get their fair share of quality mixed rations!
When the animals return to the buildings after grazing, providing a homogeneous ration is the best solution to avoid them pushing and shoving for feed.
The PROFILE range features an impressive selection of feed-out solutions to ensure distribution of the rations in all the types of buildings. Whether you have sheds with no separate exit, troughs with retaining rims or very narrow feed passages, feeding tables on both sides of the passage requiring simultaneous distribution, or other constraints requiring distribution from the rear of the machine, you will find what you need in the PROFILE range.
The cross-conveyor can be positioned at the front or rear of the PROFILE range.
As standard, feed can be distributed on the left or right-hand side. The conveyor is driven by a hydraulic motor at each end guaranteeing perfect operation regardless of the rotation direction.
The PVC belt ensures that fodder doesn’t travel back underneath the belt. The feed passage always remains clean after distribution.
As an option, the cross-conveyor can be hydraulically offset by 250 mm to the left or the right of the machine: ideal for keeping fibrous rations away from the tyres of the mixer and getting the fodder closer to the feed barrier!
The FLEXILIFT conveyor is a new alternative to cross-conveyors. It allows for delivery into high troughs (1.200 mm) without protruding from the mixer wagon. FLEXILIFT is available as an option on all PROFILE CL models in the range.
The angle of the belt will depend on the degree of extension: one simple control takes care of both movements.
The FLEXILIFT conveyor is designed with a continuous belt. There is no product loss in the feed passage, unlike standard tilting conveyors and cross-conveyors, which have joints.
The FLEXILIFT conveyor is reversible and symmetrical. Depending on which side you want the raised conveyor on, your KUHN authorised dealer can easily reverse the conveyor during start-up.
