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 subframe and 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.
The straw-blowing turbine is driven by a disengageable belt, for flexible start-up and minimum noise during operation and the PTO does not have to be switched off to stop the turbine. The large diameter of the turbine (1540 mm) allows it to project straw to a range of 18 m.
The two-speed gearbox allows you to switch to a lower speed when bedding or working close range.
The special shape of the PROFILE PLUS straw blowing hatch (VENTIDRIVE patented asymmetric shape) improves straw suction from the turbine. A regular flow is guaranteed at very low rpms. The straw backflow phenomena encountered on rectangular hatches with a flanged turbine are a thing of the past.
The instant straw blowing rate is equivalent to the machines in the KUHN bedding 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 rear of the PROFILE PLUS 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!
