The Kuhn Knight PS 160 sets the standard for reliability and spreading performance to meet the changing needs of livestock and dairy producers. The all-welded box construction provides a solid framework. The simple, protected center driveline improves dependability while reducing maintenance. The solid poly floor also eliminates corrosion concerns.
This spreader, available with horizontal beaters, VertiSpread® vertical beaters or AccuSpread® spinner discharge, spreads the toughest solid materials quickly and evenly with the hydraulically controlled, variable-speed apron. Horizontal beaters provide a uniform spread pattern and excellent material breakup, especially when spreading difficult materials like pen pack manure. VertiSpread vertical beaters provide a wider and more consistent 25-30 foot spread pattern and help maximize the value of manure nutrients. The AccuSpread spinner discharge provides the widest and most uniform spread pattern with a spread width of up to 40-50 feet.
Multiple Beater Options
Multiple discharge options can be ordered and easily changed for different applications.
Horizontal beaters are most effectively used in spreading applications with dry, course materials such as pen pack or yard scrapings. They work well in situations where fast unloading and high application rates are desired.
VertiSpread vertical beaters provide a consistent, wide, 25-30 foot spread pattern. These beaters provide quality spreading performance for a wider variety of dry materials, from tough materials like pen pack to finer materials like dry dirt compost. They provide the same fast unloading and high application rates as horizontal beaters, but with a wider spread pattern and more consistent material breakup.
AccuSpread Spinner Discharge:
The AccuSpread spinner discharge option provides the most uniform spread pattern available with a spread width up to 40-50 feet. It allows accurate metering and provides the ability to consistently spread dry, flowable materials at low rates.
Variable Discharge Control
The hydraulic drive minimizes moving parts and allows independent operation of the beaters and apron. The variable speed allows controlled and even spreading of many different types of solid material.
Dependable Construction for Long Life
The all-steel welded construction provides a solid framework, which includes a rigid A-frame to keep the sides and beater panels aligned for strong box integrity. The lower side and frame overlap provides added strength and double protection against rust-through.
The high-density, two-piece, solid poly floor eliminates corrosion concerns and reduces friction and horsepower requirements to provide long life.
The parallel-shaft apron gearbox is designed for heavy-duty use. It is stronger, more efficient, requires less power and generates less heat than worm-drive gearboxes.
