- 2-Speed Split-Drive Gearbox
The 2-speed, split-drive gearbox provides the flexibility of high and low speeds without adding another gearbox. It allows for a lower horsepower and easier starting speed (28 rpm in low) while also having a high speed for fast mixing and more complete cleanout (41 rpm in high). The gearbox can be shifted manually on the machine or with an in-cab electric shift option for operator convenience.
- Heavy-Duty Gearboxes
The twin planetaries are designed to provide dependable performance and long life. The drive systems allow the use of single-stage planetaries, which produces far less heat for easier cooling. VTC planetary gearboxes are the heaviest and strongest in this mixer class and are designed to run up to 24 hours a day.
- Torque-Disconnect PTOs
Two automatically resetting torque-disconnect PTOs provide independent protection for each planetary. This helps guard against obstructions encountered by each individual auger, ensuring reliable service and longer life.

Customer Spotlight: VTC 100

“Fewer moving parts, longer life and faster mixing. The mix quality has always been good with KUHN Knight mixers, but we think we can do it faster now (with the new KUHN Knight VTC 180 mixer).”

“When we bought our first KUHN Knight mixer, we decided quickly we needed another one (VTC 1120). They are big, heavy-duty wagons that can haul large loads, yet still mix consistently well.”

“Our operation has benefited from these stationary mixers (KUHN Knight VTC 1120) in efficiency and a consistent mix which has allowed us to produce more milk.”
