Kuhn Farm Machinery’s full range of high capacity mixer wagons is now available in the UK. Featuring hopper capacities ranging from 28m3 to 45m3, the Euromix I – 70 Series machines are capable of feeding up to 360 high yielding dairy cattle in a single load, making them ideally suited to the growing number of large-scale dairy operations.
The Euromix I – 70 Series features four models of mixer wagon, all of which are fitted with three vertical augers, with seven mixing knives per auger. The tandem axle 2870 and 3370 models have a capacity of 28m3 and 33m3 respectively and are capable of feeding up to 225 or 260 cows in a single load. The steering triple axle 3970 and 4570 machines have respective capacities of 39m3 and 45m3 and are capable of feeding up to 310 and 360 cows in a single load.
Each machine measures just 2.44 metres in width making them suitable for use within most cow housing facilities: the 2870 has an overall height of 2.74 metres and is designed for use in sheds with restricted height access, while the largest 4570 machine still sits at a relatively low height of 3.45 metres. The 3370 and 3970 both have a maximum height of 3.00 metres.
“The high capacity of the 70 Series machines means that a large quantity of fibrous feed – up to six whole round bales – can be chopped and mixed in one load,” explains Duncan McLeish, UK Sales Manager for Kuhn.
“In common with Kuhn’s single and double auger machines, each auger also features a double pitch profile at the end of the auger and a second scraper at the base to quickly break up and expand whole bales. The contents of the hopper are then mixed throughout the machine’s entire storage volume, thereby allowing large herds to be fed quickly, efficiently and consistently, with no loss or variation in nutritional quality.”
The hoppers on all four machines are constructed from extra thick steel for intensive use over an extended period, and are equipped with a weighing system comprising six loads cells mounted between the hopper and integral frame.
The 2870 and 3370 machines are fitted with a double speed gearbox (14 and 30 rpm), while the 3970 and 4570 models use a heavy-duty double speed gearbox (18 and 39 rpm). All four models can be configured with right or left discharge chutes at the front or rear of the machine, with a central rear chute option also available.
Prices for the 2870 start from £75,732 and from £100,475 for the 4570 machine. For further information go to www.kuhn.co.uk
