The new KUHN Knight HP 140 hydraulic push box spreader features the proven ProPush® design customers have come to love, just in a higher capacity, commercial duty package. The HP 140, with VertiSpread® vertical beaters, is designed to haul and spread solid materials from dairies and feedlots, including gutter manure, yard scrapings, bedding pack and feedlot manure. The hydraulic push-type design means no apron chains, fewer moving parts and dependable service life.

The all-steel welded frame on the HP 140 provides a solid foundation for the spreaders sides and floor. The pusher on the HP 140 features a solid front panel instead of a bolt-on extension, increasing the strength and longevity of the pusher assembly. VertiSpread vertical beaters equipped on the KUHN Knight HP 140 provide customers with a uniform 25-30 foot spread pattern with excellent material breakup. Poly floor and sides minimize friction and deliver exceptional machine cleanout. For precise monitoring and application tracking, an optional scale system is available.



Fast Unloading & Thorough Cleanout

Proven ProPush ® Design
The ProPush box spreaders are designed with simplicity in mind. The hydraulic push-type design means no apron chains, fewer moving parts, faster unloading and dependable service life.

Piggyback Hydraulic Cylinders
This unique cylinder design provides smooth and uniform travel through the entire stroke and rapid cylinder retraction spreading is completed. The cylinders are completely protected by a structural tube member. This stops manure from falling directly onto the cylinder which helps prevent premature seal failure.

Improved Pusher Design
The redesigned pusher on the HP 140 features a solid front panel instead of a bolt-on extension. The single-piece pusher increases the strength and longevity of the pusher assembly.



Durable Construction For Long Life

All-Steel, Welded Construction
The all-steel, welded ProPush construction provides a solid framework and includes a reinforced tongue that pulls directly from the full-width axle. This results in a stronger, more dependable spreader since the unit is pulled from the axle rather than the front of the box.

Overrunning Clutch
A greasable overrunning clutch prevents beater backlash force when the PTO is disengaged, allowing the beaters to free wheel to a stop. This provides protection for the gearbox and spreader driveline.

Friction-Resistant Poly Floor
The solid poly floor and polylaminate sides reduce friction and promote self-cleaning to help prevent material buildup on the inside of the spreader. The polylaminate floor and sides come with a 10-year breakage warranty.


VertiSpread® Vertical Beaters

VertiSpread® Vertical Beaters
VertiSpread vertical beaters provide a wide spread pattern in an array of materials. These beaters are designed to spread material in a 25-30 feet pattern at rates ranging from 5-30 tons per acre. VertiSpread vertical beaters are designed particularly for operations that spread a wide variety of solid materials such as penpack or material heavy with dirt. The beater module can easily be removed for storage while stockpiling, providing you with greater machine versatility.
