    The gearbox on the Kuhn pull type cutter swivels in the center. Which keeps the pto shaft in line with the tractor when making a turn. The limit to how sharp you can turn is when the tractor tire would hit the tongue of the cutter.

    It's a real impressive hookup! I have to admit that I'm not real comfortable with pushing the turn angle to what the cutter will work at... To many year's of watching out for the pto shaft and not crowding those knuckles; I guess!

    But, the neighbor has a new Kuhn MoCo and he cranks out those near 90's with calm precision!

    The Gyrodine drive is designed to be able to turn it more than 90 degrees, it's basically 2 right angle gear drives joined together. It pivots by hand while on it's kickstand. The Kuhn FC 243 RTG here has the 2 point hitch with chain height limiters, very easy to hook up.

    Nice looking machine Timm250.

    Does that Gyrodine drive attach to tractor drawbar or 3pt?

    This one attaches to the drawbar but they also make a hitch that attaches to the 3pt.

    Yes. There is a piece that attaches to the drawbar & the hook that you see in the other picture drops down over it. Then there is a another piece that latches the 2 together. I will try to get a picture of it later.

    OK I understand. That adapter in lower photo makes it interesting to tow disc cutter with a PU. Very similar problem with JD's first Equal Angle hitch.
