The Kuhn Knight BTC 163 Horizontal 4-auger mixer is a part of the BTC 100 Series of Botec commercial 4-auger mixers and is ideal for large dairy and feedlot operations. They provide the ultimate ration flexibility to thoroughly mix a wide range of ingredients, including high percentages of byproducts or roughages.

The unique Botec design eliminates dead spots for efficient material flow and fast mixing to save you time. A lower horsepower requirement, compared to competitive models, results in less fuel consumption. Redesigned discharge options provide fast, even feedout and enhanced reliability from the upgraded auger drive.


Fast Mixing and Cleanout

The raised lower right auger configuration, along with the close tolerance between the auger flighting and the auger bottoms, results in a fast and complete cleanout. The offset upper right auger in combination with the raised lower auger requires less horsepower and provides a faster mix time.

Unmatched Cleaning Performance

New discharge options deliver fast, even feedout. The 4-auger conveyor has a heavier build and upgraded drive for outstanding durability. Additional discharge options include a slide tray, and a chain and slat conveyor.

Enhanced Drive Serviceability

The flanged and bolted augers provide a stronger auger to drive shaft connection. Splined shafts give more positive power transfer and longer service life compared to keyed sprocket-to-shaft connections.

Easy Access Door

The new single-handled latch provides easy access to the oil bath. An improved seal keeps oil in, and dirt and debris out, to help minimize wear on drive components and maintain a cleaner appearance.

Flexible for Grain and Roughage

The grain-auger option provides gentle handling of more delicate feeds like flaked corn to maintain ration quality. The roughage-auger option features notched, sectional flighting with welded-in, self-sharpening, hardened knives for better hay handling capability.
