KEENAN MechFiber 270

The MechFiber 270 six paddle mixer 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 MechFiber 270.

 

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.

KEENAN MechFiber 300

The MechFiber 300 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 and is fitted with the new ‘stepped-in-paddle-legs’ design giving a cleaner tumbling action. The MechFiber 300 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 MechFiber 300 would be an 80 HP tractor. The mixer when loaded 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 MechFiber 300 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 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.

KEENAN MechFiber 320

The MechFiber 320 is a quality engineered diet feeder which is ideal for the medium sized operator. Designed with the animals’ specific nutritional needs in mind the gentle paddle mixing action produces the optimal physical mix without damaging the structure.

Six 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.

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. Mixers can be raised to feed into 56” ring feeders.

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.

Baleblend Big Bale processing

The MechFiber 320 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.

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