PROFILE PLUS - TMR Mixers/Straw Blowers with VENTIDRIVE: COMPACTNESS and VERSATILITY combined!

The Kuhn mixing and feeding machine range is expanding in 2014 with the arrival of new models in the PROFILE PLUS line. After the launch of cross-conveyor versions of PROFILE mixers in 2010, followed by direct feeding versions two years later, 2014 will be the year that sees “PROFILE PLUS” models enter the market. This new range of TMR mixers with straw blowing system adopts the double-auger vertical mixing concept – the best compromise between high capacity and low overall height.

PROFILE PLUS – a new PATENTED straw blowing system

FOR DISTANCE
The straw blowing system positioned at the front of the machine features the same large (1540 mm diameter) turbine as used on the Kuhn straw blower and TMR feeder range. Straw can be projected up to 18 m on the right-hand side.

FOR LONG LIFE AND SIMPLICITY
The straw blowing turbine is driven by the same POLYDRIVE technology as that used on all Kuhn long-fibre feeders and straw blowers – a hydraulically disengageable belt. This system combines mechanical transmission power and flexible use.

FOR WORK RATE
The intake and control of the flow of straw from the hopper to the turbine is managed by the patented VENTIDRIVE system. VENTIDRIVE features an asymmetric straw output door shape which optimises suction to the turbine and eliminates all backflow phenomena to the machine body.
Bedding rates can reach 130 kg of straw per minute!



PROFILE PLUS – machines suited to all buildings

  • Available in 16, 18 and 20 m³ sizes for herds of 65 to 150 dairy cattle.
  • Compactness: overall machine height from 2.83 m for the 16 m³ model with an outside width at the wheels of 1.85 m. These dimensions can be achieved thanks to the under-body wheel positions.
  • Cutting and mixing of all fodder (silage, hay, straw, haylage, etc.) irrespective of bale format (round or cubic). For fibrous rations, all models in the range are equipped as standard with an overflow prevention ring.

PROFILE PLUS – a wide choice of feeding accessories
  • For quick feeding regardless of the proportion of fibre in the ration, the discharge door design offers plenty of width (1100 mm).
  • The ration is delivered via symmetrical feed chute(s) at the front right and/or left of the machine.
  • It can also be optionally equipped with an additional two chutes at the rear, for distribution in 2.70 m wide feeding passages.
  • For farms equipped with feed troughs, the PROFILE PLUS range can also accommodate a tilting conveyor.
