The Kuhn Knight 1140 ProSpread® apron box spreader is designed to haul and spread solid materials from feedlot and dairy operations. This spreader is built with tough, quality components to meet the rigorous demands of dairymen and cattlemen.
The rooster comb beaters are specifically placed for a uniform spread pattern, excellent material breakup and dependable driveline operation. The spread rate can be easily controlled from the tractor seat by adjusting the apron speed with an optional variable-speed control valve. This control provides efficient spreading of a wide variety of solid materials and the ability to adjust for a quicker final cleanout. If you spread solid materials and want fast, reliable performance, the Kuhn Knight ProSpread apron box spreader is the machine for you.
Wide, Consistent Spread Pattern
The solid construction features welded-on spades supported at two locations for superior strength and reliability. Heavy-duty, bolt-on rooster comb beaters are fully replaceable and provide outstanding spread performance.
Variable Discharge Control
The variable-speed hydraulic apron drive minimizes moving parts, provides independent operation of beaters and apron, and allows controlled, even spreading of many different types of solid material.
The apron drive-shaft assembly includes self-cleaning, drop-forged steel sprockets welded to a high-strength steel shaft. This welded assembly has twice the strength of keyed sprockets.
Durable Construction for Long Life
The rear A-frame and all-welded construction provide a solid framework for these spreaders. This A-frame design keeps the sides and beater panels aligned. The all-welded construction includes a reinforced tongue that pulls directly from the axle for added strength and durability.
Friction-Resistant Poly Floor
The high-density, solid poly floor reduces friction and winter freeze down to lower horsepower requirements and to provide trouble-free service and long life. It offers more durability than individual tongue-and-groove boards.
The upper and lower side sheets overlap in the floor and apron chain area. This provides added strength and double protection against wear and rust-through in the most critical area of the spreader.
