This page advertises limited-time specials from Earth Tools, as well as serving as a listing of used equipment our customers and ourselves have available. This bulletin board gets updated periodically, so check in occasionally to find a deal. Thank you for visiting and keep checking back!

Time to clean out the warehouse! We accumulate an assortment of used and “demo” equipment over time, and they need to find new homes. A 90 day parts and labor warranty is included unless otherwise stated. Here’s what we’ve got:

BCS 735 Tractor with 10HP Engine

Price: $850

This tractor is equipped with an Acme ALN330 10hp manual start engine and 5x10x20” wheels. This unit has seen a lot of service, but has been maintained and is in operating condition. Transmission has 4 speeds (plus 1 “transport” speed) in “tilling” direction and 2 speeds in “mowing” direction, and has independent wheel brakes and differential with lock. Accepts essentially the same implement selection as a BCS 732, although this machine has the older-style “splined” PTO, so it would need an adapter to fit newer BCS implements. (We do offer SOME new implements with the older-style splined PTO hookup built into them…call for details) Available for pickup at our shop, or ships via truck freight. Call for details: 502-484-3988 or earthtools@hotmail.com.

BCS 40” 3-Blade Lawn Mower

Price: $400

This old side-discharge 3-spindle lawn mower was built in the 1980s, but still has plenty of life left in it. It is equipped with a splined PTO input shaft, so it will fit directly to the older BCS 735, 737. 604 and 604 machines with 10hp or larger engines, OR, a PTO adapter ($70) can be used to run it off a newer BCS tractor (with 3-jaw PTO) 11hp or larger. NOT adaptable to Grillo machines. Available for pickup at Earth Tools in KY or ships via truck freight (Shipping charges extra). Contact: Joel or Ellen at earthtools@hotmail.com or (502) 484-3988

We are advertising the following items for consignment sale; please note we do not offer any warranty on consignment units, since they are not “ours” (scroll down to see all listings):

60” Molon 140 Hay Rake $1800 (TN)

Bought new in 2014, but seldom used. This rake can get into areas too tight for a 4-wheel tractor and rake. This Molon does a much better job than a regular side delivery rake. Barn kept. Belt and tines show no wear. Located in Kingsport TN.

24” R2 Power Harrow $1100 (MI)

Barely used Italian made R2 Rinaldi, 24” Power Harrow! Less than 10 hours of use. Has a quick coupling for ease of removal and linking up.

This harrow is configured to fit current Grillo G85 - G107 tractors with quick-coupling; will also fit older BCS 725 & 735 machines IF equipped with the Grillo quick-coupler system. ALSO, the PTO flange/shaft on the harrow can be changed to make the harrow fit current BCS machines 8hp & up (new flanges available from Earth Tools).

Seller will hold this for you upon receipt of payment on Paypal. Located in SE Michigan.

BCS 730 with 20” BCS Tiller (KY)

Price: $1800

This very low-use 2002 BCS 730 tractor is equipped with an electric only Kohler Magnum 8hp engine, 4” x 8” x 16” wheels, and a 20” BCS tiller. Everything works well, the (still-original) tiller tines are almost new, and has recently been serviced at Earth Tools. The 730 is very similar to a current model BCS 722 tractor. Available for pickup at Earth Tools or ships via truck freight. Contact: Joel at earthtools@hotmail.com or (502) 484-3988

30” R2 Rinaldi Power Harrow - NY

Price: $2000

This harrow was purchased from us earlier this year, but has the owner has changed his gardening plans and does not need it. IT HAS NEVER BEEN USED. It is equipped with a quick-coupling to fit current-model BCS 732 - 853 tractors (NOT 750), and this mounting flange could be switched out for one to fit other BCS or Grillo machines. Price on new harrow like it is $2099 plus shipping. This IS the “new and improved” R2 harrow that is lighter weight, etc. Available for pickup at the owner’s location in Hudson, NY or can be shipped via truck freight at buyers expense (shipping can be arranged through Earth Tools for a reduced shipping rate). A really good deal for any New-England-area buyers, since the shipping from KY to NY has already been paid!! Contact: Jean-David at jeandavidderreumaux@gmail.com or 518 751 6829.

59” BCS Double-Action Cutter Bar Mower - UT

Price: $1100

This unit was purchased new from us in 2009, and is still in good working order. The owner has other mowers now, and does not need this one any more. Still has a few of the new replacement parts that came with it (spare teeth, rivets, etc.). Fits BCS tractors 11hp and larger with differential-axle and minimum wheel size of 5x10x20”. Can be equipped with a quick-coupling if desired (available from Earth Tools). Also can fit Grillo tractors 11hp and larger using an adapter (this same adapter would be needed to hook up to BCS machines older than 1994 production) Located in UT. Available for local pickup, or can be shipped or even delivered within reasonable distances. Contact: Brett Butterfield at 435-757-8166 or brettferrebee@gmail.com

5x10x20” FOAM-FILLED Adjustable-rim Wheels and Tires to fit BCS or Grillo - WA (no photo)

Price: $300

These are only a couple months old…purchased new from us in April of 2016. The owner wants to upgrade to the next size larger wheel, so he is selling the standard wheels. They have already been filled with solid rubber foam, so they are flat-proof, and have extra weight for extra traction. New set of wheels like this (with foam-filling) is $405. Located in Selah, WA. Available for local pickup, or will ship by UPS. Contact: Joel Hansen @ 509-910-8937 or jx4hansen@charter.net.

Goldini 24” Single Stage Snow Blower - KY (photo available by request)

Price: $450 or best offer

Essentially a brand-new (may have been used once or twice) 24” single-stage high-performance snow blower implement to fit Goldoni 600 series walk-behind tractor. This unit may fit on the newer “Jolly” series Goldoni tractors, but we are not sure if the PTO type is exactly the same, since we are not a Goldoni dealer. If you have a Jolly series Goldoni and you want us to find out if it will fit, give us a call at (502) 484-3988. Available for pickup at Earth Tools or ships via truck freight. Contact: Ben DuBard (803) 528-4481 or info@fiveleavesfarm.com OR Joel at Earth Tools, 502-484-3988

SEP/Mainline 28” Snow Blower - OH

Price: $375

This 28” snowblower has hardly been used at all. Fits SEP / Mainline “Mountaineer” models –requires clockwise tractor PTO direction (looking at tractor PTO) when tractor is in Front-PTO mode. (This should be the 1500 Mountaineer [rather than the 1300], but as we are not an SEP dealer, I would rather not claim it for sure…any interested parties can just look at their tractor PTO rotation for verification.) At this time, we do NOT have adapters available to adapt this snowblower to any other tractor. Unit is located in Elyria, OH. Contact: Tom Bowen (440) 387-8733 or capttcb@windstream.net


This fellow has an old Mainline (produced by SEP of Italy) Ladybug machine, and is looking for a machine to buy for a “parts” tractor, being that parts are getting hard to come by on the SEP units. The most important thing would be the actual rototiller implement, as his tractor does not have one (he has a mower only) SO: if someone out there has an old Ladybug (or 2+2, which is about the same) unit with a blown engine, this fellow might take it off your hands. Contact: Ben Hoyt, 603-443-0379
