Exceptional mixing quality at a reduced cost
Power requirement: quality mixer wagons at an unbeatable price!
The lower power requirement of the PROFILE range is the result of several technological designs:
- Auger design: the continuous helix of the mixing auger gravitates the fodder from the bottom of the tub to the top without any forced movements. The mixing process is performed easily and smoothly for greater fuel efficiency.
- Auger diameter: the smaller the auger diameter, the shorter the scraper arm, resulting in reduced power requirement.
- Auger rotation direction: in twin-auger vertical mixer wagons, the augers rotate the mixture in a figure-of-eight pattern. This ensures regular fodder circulation and prevents material from blocking up against the sides of the tub for improved energy efficiency.
The optional two-speed gearbox further reduces the power requirement. This option is recommended for farmers who travel long distances with a loaded mixer wagon. Reducing the auger speed will allow for smooth start-up before the ration distribution phase.
Exclusive KUHN mixing auger!
To reduce power consumption, the PROFILE range is equipped with asymmetric knives which have a “self-cleaning” effect and also have a progressive-cutting knife edge for constant torque transfer. The continuous auger helix naturally moves the fodder from the bottom to the top of the tub for even mixing with no forced movements, reducing fuel consumption during the mixing process.
The auger material and design has been selected to provide maximum resistance to wear.
Tried and tested transmission and drive systems!
The combination of the pre-stressed subframeand the solid auger base provides maximum resistance to the load bearing in the bottom of the machine.
The unit is fitted on a collar which reaches up to approximately half the auger height, thus protecting the transmission from lateral forces exerted on the auger.
Mixing: precision, with a 1.2% margin of error!
Homogeneous fodder distribution is guaranteed over the longest feed troughs, ensuring that each animal benefits from all the nutritional values of the ration.
Weighing system: choose your level of data
Programmable weighing unit: simple, functional and intuitive
You can also program mixing times so the unit will beep when the mixing process is complete. The large digital display (43 mm characters) and backlit screen provides excellent visibility from all angles.
Optional wireless display unit: weighing information at your fingertips. For greater comfort, a KDR 300 wireless display unit can be placed in the loader to display the information from the primary KDW 341 unit, at up to a 90 m range. You control the ration from the loader cab with maximum visibility!
The wireless display can be replaced by a smartphone to ensure greater mobility. Keep all the information from the primary unit right in your pocket. Receive the information from the primary unit via Wi-Fi and keep control within a 90 m range.
Feed Tracking BRONZE: a step towards traceability
You can save and track all the quantities loaded of the different types of fodder, the quantities distributed, and the dates and times when the operations were performed.
KUHN Feed Tracking BRONZE can be installed on the farm office computer in minutes. The files are extracted in .txt format and can be converted to an Excel format. Mixing times can also be programmed on the unit. A beeping sound will inform you when the mixing is complete.
Feed Tracking SILVER: two-way data transfer
You can also program the weighing unit from your computer. With the SILVER version, you can print reports required for driver records to keep track of the work completed.
Feed Tracking GOLD: stock management assistance
Just define the minimum stock threshold for your different products, and you are automatically informed once the threshold is reached. If you input your suppliers, they will also be informed of your low stock levels.
KUHN Feed Tracking GOLD also requires the KDW 361 unit.KUHN Feed Tracking GOLD also requires the KDW 361 unit.
Feed Tracking OPUS: maximum automation of your operation
You’ll be able to monitor your herd performance at a glance with the easy to read graphs.
KUHN Feed Tracking OPUS also prepares fodder and concentrate feed orders for your usual suppliers based on your consumption. All you have to do is approve the purchase orders.
Cross-conveyor: maximum visibility
A wide selection of possible combinations!
When the animals return to the buildings after grazing, providing a homogeneous ration is the best solution to avoid them pushing and shoving for feed.
The PROFILE range features an impressive selection of feed-out solutions to ensure distribution of the rations in all the types of buildings. Whether you have sheds with no separate exit, troughs with retaining rims or very narrow feed passages, feeding tables on both sides of the passage requiring simultaneous distribution, or other constraints requiring distribution from the rear of the machine, you will find what you need in the PROFILE range.
Cross-conveyor: maximum visibility
As standard, feed can be distributed on the left or right-hand side. The conveyor is driven by a hydraulic motor at each end guaranteeing perfect operation regardless of the rotation direction.
The PVC belt ensures that fodder doesn’t travel back underneath the belt. The feed passage always remains clean after distribution.
As an option, the cross-conveyor can be hydraulically offset by 250 mm to the left or the right of the machine: ideal for keeping fibrous rations away from the tyres of the mixer and getting the fodder closer to the feed barrier!

“The mixing capability is important for all rations, but particularly for the transition diet where we’re including a significant amount of straw,” adds Scott. “We don’t use a separate straw-grinder but instead use the Profile to chop and mix the straw into the transition diet.''
