Go with the 1644, it has the same rotor and sieve capacity as a 1666. The only real difference between the 1644 and 1666 are the final drives/transmission and the engine, 5.9 liter Cummins on the 1644 vs 8.3 liter on the 1666. If you are lucky some of the later 1644 even had the heavier final drives/transmission like the 1666.
We had a 1644 from 1996 till 2005 and it was an excellent machine. Handled a 6 row corn head very well and did pretty good with a 20' 1020 flex head. Ours had 30.5x32 rubber on it with small final drives. We took it easy with that setup and got along pretty well with it.
Her is a pic of ours the day we traded for the 2366.
