Designed to handle, chop, mix and feed all types of baled and loose feedstuffs, the Kongskilde VM series diet mixers come in 6.5m3 to 45m3 sizes made from S500 and S650 steel to last longer.

They are available in one, two or three rotor versions and can be specified to discharge to either side. 

Thorough mixing is achieved with large conical auger rotors. Shredding and mixing efficiency is further enhanced by two adjustable shear-bars fitted at the base of each rotor.

Weigh cells fitted between the tub and chassis accurately monitor the weight of ingredients added, which is displayed in the loading tractor via the Feed Manager wireless remote monitor for clear and easy viewing. A second remote wireless monitor is also available.

Discharge of the mixed ration is either directly onto the ground via a short elevator, into troughs or over feed barriers up to about one metre high, depending on wheel equipment. 

Alternatively, a cross conveyor can take the ration from the front of the machine and discharge it either onto the ground or to a separate elevator.
