The Kuhn Knight VT 1100 Vertical Maxx mixers are the new generation of vertical, twin-auger mixers that are the ideal choice for dairy and beef producers. These models have innovative features that help producers mix and place a quality ration in front of their animals.
The VT mixers are rugged and dependable, and are built for moderate duty cycles. These machines have a patented 2-speed, split planetary drive that helps ensure reliable service and long life. An efficient mixing chamber, with straighter sides and steeper baffles, allows for greater feed movement with less horsepower required, ensuring a fast, thorough mix. The redesigned tub results in a lower loading height and decreased tread width, by tucking the tires under the unit shell. Eight different door-configuration options offer flexibility to fit a variety of feeding situations. The VT series mixers are available with a single- or tandem-axle trailer, as well as a truck mount option. Trailer model specifications are listed below.

Simple, Dependable Drive
The patented drive system consists of a 2-speed splitter gearbox, two planetary gearboxes, and two torque-disconnect PTOs that provide independent protection for each planetary, ensuring reliable service and longer life. The two heavy-duty planetary gearboxes are designed to provide dependable performance with moderate use cycles. The VT drive system allows the use of single-stage planetaries, which produce far less heat for easier cooling.
Efficient Mixing Chamber
The straighter sides and steeper baffles allow for greater feed movement with less horsepower required. The improved feed exchange provides a fast, complete mix for a fluffy and palatable ration.
Advanced Auger Design
Redesigned augers provide superior feed movement for faster, more complete mixing and processing. The cone-shaped design of the augers promotes consistent material flow and improves clean off. Enhanced material flow also results in a lower horsepower requirement for more efficient, economical operation.
Efficient Discharge Kicker
The curved, bolt-on auger kicker is formed rearward to efficiently charge the door with feed the entire way on each pass for even discharge and decreased unloading time.
Rugged Undercarriage Options
Straight-single and walking-tandem-bogie axle options are available, providing flexibility to fit the terrain. Both axle systems are located under the tub for decreased tread width to keep the tires from running over the feed.
The heavy-duty front cross conveyor has also been redesigned for dependability in even the heaviest-use situations. A stainless steel floor and the heaviest conveyor chain in the industry, help ensure long service life and less down time.
