High Performance Mixer Knife - Serrated Inserts
Kooima Ag #K385004
The K385004 high-performance carbide insert style mixer wagon knife fits a variety of mixers including JAY-LOR®, Penta™, Kirby™, and MaxiMixer™ feed wagons. This knife is used for cutting and mixing livestock rations. It features a long-lasting design and a more aggressive cutting edge.
The K385004 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.
The body of this blade is made from a long-lasting high wear AR400 material, while this 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 is allowed, the potential to lose the carbide inserts is increased. These are installed using factory settings, no special tools are required. There are 2 bolt kits available for this knife. The K385002BK (Grade 8) and the K385002BK5 (Grade 5).
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 near our plant allows for year-round testing in a variety of rations.
