Video: Kuhn Optimer 4003


Take a sneak peek at the Kuhn Optimer 4003 in action.

The Kuhn Optimer offers a simple yet reliable machine that is easy to set up and simple to adjust. It was achieving good results, and I was impressed to see that this four-metre model was working well behind a 180hp tractor.

Pros

  • Large scalloped 510 diameter discs
  • Individual carrier arms 
  • with rubber blocks allow movement away from 
  • solid objects 
  • 4m working width with a 3m transport width
  • Outer wings can be on 
  • a fixed level or float to 
  • follow contours
  • Large flotation tyres minimise compaction and provide stable transport
  • Large diameter, rubber coated heavy rear 
  • roller that can work in 
  • damper conditions

Cons

  • Telescopic drawbar would be an improvement for those running duals 
  • Paintwork showing signs of fading
