Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Flat Chain & Slat Front Conveyor – Front

The flat, front conveyor option is simple to operate and offers convenient feeding from either side of the machine on trailer models. Hydraulic side shift is standard and gives you the ability to shift the conveyor a total of 16” from side to side for accurate feed placement.

Either or both ends of the flat conveyor can be fitted with a hanging belt with magnets to catch small metal fragments. The hanging belt also helps to even feed flow off the end of the conveyor. A fixed tip-off, with magnets, can be added to catch small metal fragments present in the feed and help prevent hardware disease.

Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Side Belt Conveyor

A 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. Scale Systems

Different scale brands, models and option are available for all types of operations, ranging from basic to high-end feed-tracking programs. Optional remote indicators are available for placement that will allow easier viewing. 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.

Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Incline Chain & Slat Conveyor – Front

With the incline chain and slat conveyors, customers can now choose to order a conveyor to feed off a single direction incline or bi-directional conveyor to feed off both incline or flat side. This option allows flexibility for feeding operations that may need to feed into a bunk but also do some floor feeding as well. Slide Tray

 The side-discharge slide tray on the VSL & VT models has simple hydraulic controls and helps guide the feed further away from the tire path. Discharge magnets help catch metal fragments to prevent hardware.

Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Flat Belt Conveyor

Belt conveyors are an efficient way to deliver feed with smooth feed delivery, minimal carryaround, quiet operation, and minimal maintenance. Belt conveyors can accurately place feed where operators desire. These conveyors provide excellent functionality when delivering feed to livestock. Viewing Platform

VT 256, VT 268, VT 280 and VT 2100 models feature a standard observation ladder to easily view the inside of the mixing chamber. Front door, trailer models also offer an optional viewing platform for a convenient, comfortable place to check mixing progress.

Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers High-Wear Components

Optional DuraMix® hardened auger flighting on VT 256-2100 models provides enhanced wear resistance and longer auger life in the toughest conditions. The thicker auger flighting is made of high-carbon steel throughout with hardened outer edges for unmatched durability. A stainless steel liner provides extra protection in the lower part of the chamber where most wear occurs. Stainless steel baffle liners are also available.

Superior Feed Movement

Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Cone-Style Auger & Kicker Design

New 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 bolt-on kicker (2) provides a fast and even discharge. Each lead flight is equipped with a cast iron scraper (3) that pulls material away from the tub walls into the auger for a better overall mix. Both the kicker and scraper are bolt-on attachments, making replacement very easy to save you precious time.

Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers 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 VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Efficient Mixing Chamber

Straighter sides, smoother curves and steeper baffles help promote a fast, complete mix for a fluffy, palatable ration. No preprocessing or special loading is required for round or square bales making it easy to load and use. Faster auger speeds also provide quicker, more complete cleanout.

Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers 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 VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Large Unloading Doors

 For unmatched feed flow, these mixers feature the largest discharge door available in the industry. The discharge linkage allows for rapid opening and closing of the door.

Simple, Dependable Drive
Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers
Patented 2-Speed, Split Drive

The patented drive system on the VT 180 and 1100 mixers consists of a 2-speed, split-drive gearbox, two planetary gearboxes and two torque-disconnect PTOs. This system provides reliable performance and long service life with a simple and quiet design. Truck and trailer models only.

The 2-speed, split-drive gearbox provides the flexibility of high and low speeds without adding another gearbox. It allows for a lower horsepower and easier starting speed (28 rpm in low) while also having a high speed for fast mixing and more complete cleanout (41 rpm in high). The gearbox can be shifted manually on the machine or with an in-cab electric shift option for operator convenience.

Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Torque-Disconnect PTOs

 Two automatically resetting torque-disconnect PTOs provide independent protection for each planetary. This helps guard against obstructions encountered by each individual auger, ensuring reliable service and longer life.


Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Heavy-Duty Gearboxes

The twin planetaries are designed to provide dependable performance and long life. The drive systems allow the use of single-stage planetaries, which produces far less heat for easier cooling.

Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Easy Accessibility

 Easily pull the planetary from the top of the mixer for improved and easier service. This easy accessibility is especially helpful for truck mount models as it does not require dismounting the mixer from the chassis.The image shown is from a KUHN Knight VTC model.

Multiple Configurations

Kuhn VT 280/2100 Series Twin Auger Mixers Multiple Door Options

Various door configuration options on trailed and stationary models offer flexibility to fit a variety of feeding situations. The large discharge openings provide fast, even unloading from front, side and rear door locations for maximum efficiency.

Choose a front door for clear visibility of the material coming out of the door. The front cross conveyor uses rugged components for unmatched dependability. A heavy-duty, steel floor, along with the heaviest conveyor chain in the industry, helps ensure long life and less down time. New discharge options provide the ultimate in versatility to match most feeding situations.  

VT 280/2100 models offer doors on either or both sides. The large openings allow fast unloading with comparable feed flow out of one door that many competitive machines get with two.

A rear commodity door is available. The large opening provides fast discharge, even with high-roughage premixes. A discharge tray is included on truck models to direct material flow for clean, accurate feed placement.
