Too bad we're not closer. I have two sets of Kosch mounted double 7's. (belly bar and back bar). One set is on an M and the other set is just hangin' around. Not sure of the Model # though. I just use the belly bar on the M for mowing around the place. Them old Kosch's are still good mowers although the new pitmanless are really nice. 

Careful I might knock on your door.

I had a Kosch pitmanless (Schumacher Pro-Drive). It was okay but the first bar lasted only three or four years. Didn't want to replace the bar every three or four years. The local dealer quit selling Kosch anyway, so I went back to Rowse.

Before I went to a swather, I had a Rowse pull type double nine PTO drive with IHC balanced heads and then one with all hyd drive and NH heads. The Kosch are good but the Rowse are the Cadillac of bar mowers IMHO.

Here are the two mowers on our farm. The first a New Holland 477 and the second is a John Deere 39. The New Holland will see action again soon. Is that a pto for a conditioner on the Deere?

I called Kosch ,they told me to ask you what is the distance from rear pull to the bell housing ? 54 inches or 64 inches He said the h would if mount on c , mower would hit front tires on C also. He’s Hs had a hydraulic cylinder lift that the used, I got the rock shaft. 
Gordan also said the Farmall C would be equipped with duals In Nebraska so they could mow though prairie grass bogs for flotation ,ughCould not use heavy tractor , I’ve seen Farmall c in Michigan I think with dual s now I have an idea why !

Another Swiss company makes double action knifes using there own designed knife bars. Wepfer Technics have been making them for many years now too and improving there designs. 

ya can get them in this version or as an option a windrow maker or even a conditioner. Them front mount mowers usually are around 3 meters or 3.2 meters  

What runs those hydraulic motor or pto ?
