The MechFiber 350 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 mixer 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, tongue 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
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.
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.
