Hammer Knives and Counter Knives

Hammer knives allow shredding of up to a 2” diameter brush. To achieve fine shredding, use the counter knives (one straight and two notched) to make sure residues are cut.

Offset Capability

VKD models feature a hydraulically controlled offset for quick adjustments without having to leave the tractor seat.

Roller or Semi-Pivoting Wheels

Height is controlled via a roller or semi-pivoting wheels. The roller is fitted with removable ends as standard, so that you can carry out any necessary maintenance or repair quickly and easily at reduced costs.

Suited to Meet Your Needs

Collecting_Rake_4C.jpg

Collecting Rake (Optional on VKD)

The rear collecting rake, available as an option, lifts up residues and vine shoots which are pressed down to the ground and need to be shredded. The roller guides keep it stable on uneven or damp ground. For greater machine stability, you can add skids or a roller.

Side Trimming Disc (Optional)

For clean row spacing, this hydraulically driven device moves around the trees for clean maintenance without damaging tree trunks or vine stocks. With its hydraulic work/transport positioning system, this tool is very easy to use.

Customer Spotlight: VKD

  • Larry Kalugin - KUHN VKD 155 shredder, and EL 82 power tiller
    Larry Kalugin Caneberry Farmer

    "My wife and I run a caneberry farm in Woodburn, Ore. We own several pieces of KUHN equipment, including a pair of VKD 155 shredders, a pair of EL 82 power tillers and an MDS 62 fertilizer spreader. Over the years we have used other brands of equipment, but find ourselves continually coming back to KUHN. The tillers in particular are by far the smoothest and quietest we've ever used."
