Kuhn VS 100 Series

Simple and Affordable

 Three models available, the VS 127, VS 135 and VS 143, offer capacities that range from 270 to 480 ft³. To best meet your mixing needs, choose from trailer or stationary models.

KUHN Knight VS 100 Series single-auger Vertical Maxx® mixers are an affordable, high-quality option designed for small cow/calf, backgrounder and dairy operations that process and mix high percentages of hay. The VS 100 Series mixers can mix a wide variety of feedstuffs, even hard to handle round bales, large square bales and baleage. The redesigned cone-shaped auger and angled top cover promote consistent material flow and improved cleanoff. The smaller diameter auger results in a lower horsepower requirement for more efficient, economical operation. Left, right, or a combination of left and right side discharges, along with a variety of conveyor options are available to meet the needs of your operation and place feed exactly where your animals need it.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Hay-Retention Ring

The steel hay-retention ring helps contain large round bales during processing and reduces hay spillage more effectively compared to similar options on competitive models.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Capacity Belt Extension

 A belt extension, added to the top of the mixing tub, increases capacity by about 10%. It also improves hay containment, and rubber construction is durable and pliable for long life.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Side Chain & Slat Conveyor

 Optional side conveyors provide the ultimate in durability and long life. Heavy-duty components ensure reliable service, even in extreme use conditions. Multiple conveyor length options offer unmatched flexibility to tailor the discharge to your needs. A fixed tip-off with magnets can be added to catch small metal fragments present in the feed and help prevent hardware disease.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Side Belt Conveyor

 An optional belt conveyor can be added for easy and consistent placement of feed at varying heights including the filling of mobile feed carts. The belt offers quiet operation and consistent feed flow. Belt conveyors are able to run steeper versus a chain and slat because you can run the conveyor faster, depending on the materials. The low profile sides allow the conveyor to fold up tighter to the machine for a more narrow transport width. An optional deflector helps with placement of the feed and provides an option for magnets.

Kuhn VS 100 Series 5-Year Warranty

 KUHN offers a 5-year prorated warranty on planetary and 2-speed gearboxes on all vertical mixers. KUHN also offers a 1-year warranty on all other machine components.

Superior Feed Movement

Kuhn VS 100 Series Cone-Style Auger & Kicker Design

 Cone-style augers provide superior feed movement for faster, more complete mixing and processing. The smooth, continuous auger flighting (1) creates a rolling feed action that improves mixing. The top cover of the auger has a steep angle to aid in bale movement when processing round bales and to prevent feed from sitting on top of the auger between mixes. The straight kicker (2) provides a fast and even discharge. Each lead flight is equipped with a cast iron, bolt-on scraper (3) that pulls material away from the tub walls into the auger for a better overall mix.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Hardened Knives

 Large, 15” or 20”, replaceable hay cutting knives are available to best handle the material to be processed. The knives have two positions to adjust the aggressiveness of the knife angle. Versatility of knife length, angle and position allow for an optimal setting with a wide variety of ration ingredients.

// A: Knife set in for slicing and cutting

// B: Knife set out for grabbing and tearing

Kuhn VS 100 Series Adjustable Hay Stops

The adjustable hay stops provide flexibility in processing to provide you with the cut length necessary to reach the optimal nutritional value you’re striving for. This adjustability makes hay processing more efficient and helps minimize overprocessing.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Versatile Processing

 Process and mix rations ranging from high percentages of hay, to low-cost alternate feedstuffs without worry. The cone auger and specially-designed unit shell allow processing of a variety of materials, even large round bales up to 5x6 in the VS 143.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Low Horsepower Requirement

The narrow auger design requires less horsepower, resulting in less fuel usage which helps you keep more of your hard earned dollars in your pocket.

Simple, Yet Dependable
Kuhn VS 100 Series Fully Welded Tub Design

The completely welded body provides superior strength and durability for long life without cracking at bolted joints. The reinforced floor and body help ensure dependable service and long life.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Large Discharge Doors

 For unmatched feed flow, these mixers feature a large discharge door. The large openings also help ensure less binding when discharging high-roughage rations. Upgrades to the door pivot linkage allow for smooth operation of the door. The VS 100 Series includes a fixed slide tray, with magnets, incorporated into the door-frame design as standard.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Precise Feed Placement

 Left, right, or left and right combination discharge options, standard with a fixed slide tray, are now available for greater versatility. The side door has been repositioned to enhance your ability to accurately place feed where you want it.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Simple, Dependable Drive

 A planetary drive system provides simplicity for long life and heavy-duty use. The flooded top bearing eliminates the need for extra grease zerks. This proven and rugged drive system, coupled with an external oil reservoir, is virtually maintenance free, with the exception of scheduled gear lube changes.

Stationary Models Available

Kuhn VS 100 Series Make the Most out of Your Mix

For operations looking to maximize feeding efficiency and mixer throughput, the VS 100 Series single-auger mixers are also available in a stationary configuration. Stationary mixers are ideal for producers with a centralized feeding location, who utilize a mobile feed delivery system such as conveyors or feed carts.
Stationary mixers share the same cone-shaped augers, large unloading doors and fully welded tub design, similar to their trailer counterparts.

Kuhn VS 100 Series Multiple Power Package Options

 The VS 100 Series stationary models include a manual shift, 2-speed gearbox for high and low settings, along with the pulley and motor mount. For single motor options, required horsepower depends on the mixer capacity and load size. For reduced amperage draw at startup or for customers on a single phase power, a double mounting option is also available.
