Cows in Germany are being given three-month maternity leave to take care of their offspring.
And the size and manoeuvrability of this one means farm size and building configuration do not limit its use.
The Kuhn Profile 470-670 comes with capacities 4m3 (model 470) and 6m3 (model 670). The smaller version has an overall height of 2.08m thanks to the position of the axle at rear of the body.
The small diameter (1.69m) mixing auger requires only a 40 hp tractor.
Auger gearbox and drive: a product of Kuhn technology, the angle gearbox is of prven reliability, the maker says. The same gearbox is used on 27m3 machines.
The mixing auger has the same features as the rest of the range (two double bent scrapers, double pitch at the end of the auger) to quickly calibrate fibrous rations and make a homogeneous mixture.
The polygonal body profile concept strengthens the bin structure to reduce deformation.
Welded counterframe: two side members welded to the pre-stressed body are positioned along the length of the machine to absorb the strain resulting from towing.
Distribution systems include feeding on the right and/or left hand side with a chute and/or a tilting conveyor.
Geometrically symmetrical, i.e. the drawbar and axle can be reversed to distribute feed on the right instead of the left.
Available in direct or electric control, the Profile works with the hydraulic systems of any tractor. Counter-knives are standard for fine chopping.
Three-point electronic weighing system is standard, either in a simple version or optional programmable version, to simplify power management.
Height and width adjustable feed chute on the right and/or left.
