With dairy herds growing larger comes a trend towards heavier diet mixers and longer mixing times.
The HD transmission line is offered as an option on the VM 38 and VM 45 machines with triple augers.
It consists of a robustly made gearbox and PTO shaft that are designed for continuous operation under heavy load. The gearbox has an oil cooling system that ensures a constant and optimal operating temperature. The solution includes a gear pump and an oil filter.
The HD transmission line withstands farmers’ intensive use of such machines: it is not unusual for a diet mixer to have to produce six-seven mixes per day and to cope with longer mixing times. Growing heavy loads were also behind the company’s Mix+ -- in essence a wear part concept with replaceable wear parts for the front edges of mixer augers.
