Key Benefits
Mixing chamber containing 6-paddle reel with fixed mounted knives at the bottom.
The paddles gently lift & tumble the added materials across the blades ensuring feedstuff is cut to an optimal length without destroying the quality of the fibre. This is to create a mix with the correct chop length & structure for optimum rumen health.
The two chambers are separated by an exit door which opens when the feed is mixed & ready to be fed out through the discharge chamber.
The auger is housed in the discharge chamber to evenly dispense feed to the animals. Traditional feed mixers house the auger inside the mixing chamber, which can lead to physical damage to the feed, compromising the mix quality.
KEENAN Controller is connected via the internet to InTouch Daily TMR Manager software. This records & communicates ingredient weights, diets, rotations, mixing speed & mixing accuracy.

Wed, 02/27/2019 - 16:11

The MechFiber400 is ideal for the larger operator requiring higher work rates, higher capacity, durability and trouble free operation. It has a heavy duty 4-Chain drive system and a capacity of 10 tonnes.

 

Lower power, torque and fuel requirements

A typical power unit to tow a loaded MechFiber 400 would be a 120 HP tractor. To drive the mixer when loaded, requires approximately half this power reflecting in a dramatic saving on overall fuel consumption by the larger tractor compared with other mixers.

Heavy duty chassis, steering axles and road-suspension

Tandem axles are fitted as standard and for utmost manoeuvrability steering axles are optional (with 3,000mm steering axle). The heavy duty chassis is designed to give the driver improved weight transference and improved stability when travelling at road speeds.

Four-chain drive system

The four-chain drive system is designed to extend the working life of the machine. This is all achieved by shortening the drive ratio on each individual chain and returning the drive to the auger with an independent chain. All four chains are tensioned by a spring assembly.

Oil bath

The four-chain drive system operates in an oil bath keeping all chains lubricated to their optimum levels for safety and longevity. The oil is constantly fed to the chains through a series of strategically placed channels and recycled back to the oil bath. This further improves the dissipation of heat and increases the working life of the chains.

Central greasing

For ease of maintenance ‘central greasing’ is fitted as standard to the MechFiber 400. An 18 port manifold allows you to grease those hard-to-reach bearings quickly and easily from one single point.

Baleblend Big Bale processing

The MechFiber 400 can be supplied with the latest Baleblend bale chopping technology. Big round or square bales of forage placed directly on the machine’s top cradle are chopped and incorporated into the ration in a matter of minutes.

We can customise our machines to your needs:

  • Height and Width
  • Heavy duty knives
  • Rear feed out
  • Elevator tray

Wed, 02/27/2019 - 16:04

The MechFiber 380 is designed for the farm that wants to feed large numbers of animals in a short period of time. With a payload of 9,000kgs, the machine is capable of feeding up to 150 dairy cows or 350+ fattening cattle for 24 hours with a single load. The machine manoeuvres more like the smaller MechFiber 365, with some unique stand-alone product features.

As with all KEENAN Mixer wagons, the MechFiber 380 retains the paddle mixing system ensuring a consistent ration is produced each and every time.

 

Body Design

The body design has been optimised to carry the curve of the body around closer to the top of the knife, to reduce, or remove the effect of a pinch point created after the top knife. This has been designed to reduce the peak power requirement and reduce the stress on the machine in operation.

Oil Bath

The principle of the complete oil bath for the chain drive has been retained from the MechFiber 400, but simplified from both a build and maintenance point of view.

Drive line access

The access to the oil bath drive line has been improved by the use of a sealed bath, with two full depth fiberglass doors. These allow for both ease of access and excellent access to the complete drive line in open operation.

Body blades

The number of body blades, set up and location has been reviewed and optimised. All blade are located within the main body of the machine nominally between the 5 and 7 o’clock positions. This ensure that material is chopped efficiently without increasing power requirement.

We can customise our machines to your needs:

  • Height and Width
  • Heavy duty knives
  • Rear feed out
  • Elevator tray

Wed, 02/27/2019 - 15:58

The MechFiber370 sets new standards in ration mixing, combining KEENAN’s unique MechFiber technology with high capacity. It will feed approximately 100 cows in a single load. This diet feeder is ideal for medium to large scale producers. With its higher auger, position feeding into high troughs or barriers is done with ease. It comes with or without Bale Blending technology. There are a variety of optional extras that can also be chosen.

Superior MechFiber mixing

This latest generation KEENAN mixing system uses six angled paddles rotating at just 7rpm. A new knife design and greater clearance at the ends of the paddle-arms allows material to move freely, to further improve mixing.

Lower power, torque and fuel requirements

A typical power unit to tow a loaded MechFiber 350 would be a 90 HP tractor. To drive the mixer, when loaded, requires approximately half this power delivering substantial savings in overall fuel consumption (and often size of tractor) compared with other mixers. Simple two-chain drive system

Simple two-chain drive system

KEENAN’s simple two-chain drive system has an unbeatable track record of reliability. A primary drive chain and three sprockets transmit power to the auger and idler. A second sprocket powers the much larger paddle sprocket.

Automatic oiler

An automatic oiling system can be fitted as an option and is operated by the hydraulic rams opening and closing the guillotine door. This delivers ‘pulses’ of oil to the drive chains, lubricating them to the optimum levels for safety and improved chain life.

We can customise our machines to your needs:

  • Higher auger ideal for high troughs.
  • Automatic oiler & 2 chain drive system.
  • Bale Handler option.
  • Full length auger for consistent feed-out.
  • ariable Feed Control & Feed-out height.

Wed, 02/27/2019 - 15:54

The MechFiber300 is specifically designed for farms with buildings offering limited access for a conventional sized diet feeder. It is precision engineered with greater manoeuvrability and employs the revolutionary new three-point chassis system.

 

Smaller mixer but larger capacity

The new improved design gives greater capacity in a compact machine. The MechFiber300 still maintains the unique twin chamber design, separated by the well proven guillotine door assembly to facilitate rapid feed-out.

Lower power, torque and fuel requirements

A typical power unit to tow a loaded MechFiber300 would be an 80 HP tractor. When loaded the diet feeder generally requires approximately half this power, resulting in a dramatic saving on overall fuel consumption by the tractor compared with other mixers, despite a larger capacity and faster discharge rate.

New three-point chassis improving stability

A new three point ‘T’ chassis is fitted with heavy-duty weigh bars which are positioned directly onto the rear axle and to the front drawbar to reduce any potential flexing in the body, thus maintaining the all important weighing accuracy. This all provides for a much lower and more manoeuvrable unit where access is limited.

Two-chain drive system

The tough two chain drive line on the MechFiber300 is KEENAN’s time-tested design utilising an independent idler shaft to reduce any stress within the discharge auger drive sprockets, while allowing it to be driven at the required speed for fast feed-out rates.

Automatic oiling system

An automatic oiling system can be fitted and is operated by the hydraulic rams opening and closing the guillotine door. This delivers ‘pulses’ of oil to the drive chains, lubricating them to the optimum levels for safety and improved chain life.

Wed, 02/27/2019 - 15:49

The MechFiber270 six paddle diet feeder is ideal for the medium sized operator. It can feed over 854mm (33.5″) feed barriers and can be easily adapted for rear feed out in narrower feed passages. Designed with the animals’ specific nutritional needs in mind, the MechFiber 270’s gentle paddle mixing action produces a consistent ration while maintaining the all-important MechFiber structure.

*Due to the limited size of the mixing chamber, it is not recommended to fit the BaleBlend to the MechFiber 270. Machines can be built to individual order and dimensions customised for a variety of farm set-ups. A rear feed-out can be fitted to the MechFiber270.

 

Angled Paddles

The angled castellated paddles sweep along the mixing chamber floor and through the belly knives at just 7-8 rpm lifting the material to the top before it falls, creating a gentle, non-destructive tumbling action. This guarantees thorough end-to-end mixing of all ingredients, with the correct ration structure, promoting high intakes and performance.

Ease of Maintenance

The MechFiber 270 is specifically designed to be easily maintained on-farm. This ensures that the machine can work hard day in, day out. There are just two chains in the entire machine and both have load capacities far higher than technically required. This simple, functional drive train design means there is no complicated gearbox to go wrong. Bearings, six in all, are mounted externally so they can easily be serviced.

Variable Feed Control and Feed-Out Height

For feed-out, the variable feed control (VFC) or guillotine door opens downward. The paddles push the mixed ration onto the full-length auger resulting in consistent and even feed-out. The VFC door allows you to adjust the rate of discharge. It can be closed during feed-out allowing for the addition of extra feed ingredients to simplify feeding.

Automatic Oiler

An automatic oiling system can be fitted and is operated by the hydraulic rams opening and closing the guillotine door. This delivers ‘pulses’ of oil to the drive chains, lubricating them to the optimum levels for safety and improved chain life.
