Designed with the animals specific nutritional needs in mind, the Klassiks gentle paddle mixing action thoroughly chops and mixes ingredients to present animals with consistent rations that maintain feed structure.

Research has proven the importance of correct feed structure in promoting excellent animal health and performance.

Mixing flexibility

Due to its flexibility, the Klassik is capable of mixing a wide range of feeds, for all classes of livestock. These range from calf premixes, straw-based dry cow rations to high-performance rations for dairy and beef cattle.

Using the top knife, floor-mounted knives and the unique angled paddles, the Keenan Klassik easily incorporates bales of silage or straw into the mix.

Roots can be washed and chopped for thorough mixing into rations or for ensiling. Whole grain can be easily processed using Sodagrain treatment and liquid feeds such as molasses readily handled and fed.

Strength and reliability

For a machine used in some of the most rugged farm conditions imaginable, the Klassik mixer wagons reliability is unsurpassed.

The unique mixing design keeps power requirements to a minimum. Low horsepower means low friction and less stress on key components. Coupled with heavy-duty build quality and simple operation, these give the Klassik an exceptionally long-life and low running costs.
