Bulletin Board

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 200 Series 30” Cutter Bar

Price: $250

This BCS 200 series 30” cutter bar has been serviced and comes with a spare blade. It will only work with BCS 203, 204, or 205 tractors as no adapters are available for use with other model tractors. Available for pickup at Earth Tools in KY or ships Fedex/UPS. Contact: Joel or Ellen at earthtools@hotmail.com or (502) 484-3988

Demo Zanon ZRF1000 40” Disc Mower

Price: $1395

This demo disc mower has barely been used and new blades have been installed. To operate this mower, you need a Post-1995 BCS tractor or Grillo G131 with a 13+hp gas or 11+hp diesel engine, 12” wheels, and a current BCS quick hitch. It has some scuffs and dings but comes with a full implement warranty. 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

For Parts: Mainline Mountaineer II/SEP 1500 Rev. Implements and Tractor

Price: $300

This SEP 1500 Rev. tractor without an engine, 28” SEP adjustable width tiller, and 44” SEP oil bath single action cutter bar with rock guards are available as a package, as “parts”. The original ACME engine was run out of oil & ruined…actually, this unit could be put back into service with one of our new Kohler replacement engines that are made to directly replace the ACMEs, but since the SEP machines are very hard to get parts for, we figure this unit may be best for a “parts” tractor for someone who already has one. No warranty is provided with this machine! Parts will only work with other Mainline Mountaineer II/SEP 1500 rev. equipment, and possibly some SEP 1300 machines. The equipment seems to be in decent shape for its age. 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

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

We will gladly post any European walk behind equipment (BCS, Grillo, Mainline, SEP, etc.) on this bulletin board for you; our fee is $25.00 and we will leave the posting up for one year or until your equipment sells. Just email Joel at earthtools@hotmail.com with what you want us to list, information on the equipment, price, pictures (maximum of 3), and your contact info. We will put your contact info in the posting; interested parties can contact you directly to get more info, offers, etc. and the buyer makes the purchase directly from you. After your equipment sells, please contact Joel at earthtools@hotmail.com or 502-484-3988, so we can take down the posting.

If you sell something that needs to be shipped truck freight, we can arrange the goods to be shipped using our freight account.
