High Performance Mixer Knife - Serrated Inserts
Kooima Ag #K385011
The K385011 mixer knife uses a solid carbide insert edge providing 2-3 times the cutting life of the blade over a standard tungsten coated steel edge. The additional, Kooima Ag patented serrated design, provides a more aggressive cut which is essential in longer, dry hay rations. This knife is used for cutting and mixing livestock rations.
The body of this blade is made from a long-lasting high wear AR400 material, while the material is proven to be very wear-resistant, it will wear out faster than the carbide inserts. A visual inspection must be made to determine the knife's body integrity. If too much body wear is allowed the potential to lose the carbide inserts is increased. It is heat-treated.
The K385011 mixer wagon knife fits a variety of mixers, including Arts Way™, Diamond™, Haybuster®, Penta™, and Valmetal®. These are installed using factory settings, no special tools are required. Hardware kits for this knife are K385007BK (Carriage bolts, grade 8) or KCSBK (Counter-sunk bolts).
Kooima Ag is one of the very few companies which continuously tests and looks for ways to improve wear and edge retention on our knives. Being the manufacturer and producing these in our Iowa plant allows us to implement changes and run tests without any delays. Also, having a high density of dairies and feedlots close to our plant allows for year-round testing in a variety of rations.
