Tilting conveyor for Kuhn trailed mixers

Kuhn Farm Machinery has developed a telescoping and tilting distribution conveyor belt for its Profile range of trailed mixer wagons.

Available as an alternative to a standard cross-conveyor on all new machines, the patented Flexilift conveyor is designed to make it easier to distribute feed in buildings where space is limited: the reversible, cradle-shaped conveyor can be offset laterally via a telescoping mechanism to distribute feed to either side of the mixer wagon.

One end of the conveyor (either left or right as determined when ordering the machine) can also be tilted by up to 45 degrees, enabling feed to be delivered to troughs up to 1.2-1.3m in height.

The tilting end of the conveyor is raised and lowered by a connecting rod system which enables feed to be distributed at a range of heights without the conveyor needing to extend beyond the mixer wagon’s original footprint.

Driven by a hydraulic motor at each end, the system uses a single, continuous vulcanised welded PVC belt to ensure all feed is distributed without any material being lost in the joint between two separate conveyors.
