What do you think of the Kuhn? I ruled out an 8ft one for our Case 844 because I thought it would be too heavy but if you've got a 9ft on a 6640 it would probably be ok
Yes I like it, did a nice job of cutting behind the 6640.
It is a heavy brute, nearly 1100kg but has steel conditioner tines. The 6640 is getting an assister ram for the 3 point linkage as it's on its limit without one in transport mode. Needs a lot of weight on the front, the 66 has about half a ton hanging off the front linkage, the 7610 has only the snowplough frame and seven or so weights on the front, and the front end was in the air going to the field.
I did want to put it on the Tw15 but I need to cut off these lobster claws and put it back to original ends before I can do that .

The Kuhn is long in transport. Taarups were shorter but they stuck out the side a bit which wasn't ideal. Your 66 stable enough when mowing?

Yes if you are sensible enough, keeping the mower on the topside and doing right turns certainly helps, I've mowed all the places here (which includes some very steep banks)
Bar one 20 yard strip, was cutting the outside round on the last field with the 7610, it was a steep uphill clip and fell away towards the fence too. No matter how hard i tried the front end just pulled round into the fence, so left it.

Lovely 7610 in great condition. Very wide front axle track? Also...what's the difference between the II and the III versions?
 
The 8210 came in with other improvements, with thicker castings and halfshafts in the rear axle, and the electrolink bottom link sensing for the 3 point linkage, although most people looking for an 8210 nower days try and find a pre electrolink tractor as it can play up and is not so easily fixed

It's not quite as good as it looks in the photo. It had a respray last year before I bought it. The front axle track is wide because a previous owner has welded it solid so it cannot be narrowed up. It's had quite a few other bodge job repairs done on it by previous owners. Have spent 2.5k on it since I bought it getting problems sorted.
