Kuhn Knight’s VTC 180 and 1100 Vertical Maxx mixers are twin-auger commercial mixers ideal for commercial producers who feed around the clock. Improved feed movement provides a fast, complete mix for a consistent, fluffy and palatable ration.
The models feature extended-wear components and a two-speed, split planetary drive – the heaviest and strongest in its class – for reliability and longer life. The redesigned tub results in a lower loading height and decreased tread width by tucking the trailer tires under the unit shell. The models are available with a single- or tandem-axle trailer, as well as a truck mount option, and come in capacities of 800-1,100 cu. ft.

Hydraulic kick bars
Moly Manufacturing introduces Hydraulic Kick Bars for its Silencer hydraulic squeeze chute. Available on all nine Moly regular and extended length Silencer hydraulic squeeze chutes, the bars hydraulically rotate in behind the restrained animal, adding operator safety from potential animal rear leg kicking motion. In the aft position, the kick bars hydraulically tuck away in the rear walk-through door, out of the way, for continued, efficient animal flow into the chute. The kick bars also discourage animals from backing up when exiting the chute.
