BCS and Grillo Rear-tine Tillers

The Grillo Company has been building rear-tine tillage equipment since the early 1950’s. Through a technology-sharing venture with BCS which lasted from roughly the late 1960’s to the early 1980’s, BCS acquired rear-tine tiller technology (the first BCS-branded tillers were produced around 1970). Both companies’ tiller implements currently feature 290 rpm tine speed (with engine at maximum rpm), hardened-steel ring and pinion gear drive and ball bearing supported shafts in an oil bath. Both units use a wedge-shaped “middlebuster” (BCS calls theirs a “Planar wedge”) which has 3 functions: 1) Depth control; 2) completely breaks out center strip of untilled soil under gearbox; 3) helps hold tractor in place in hard soils. BCS planar wedge adjusts to 4 depth positions; Grillo adjusts to 6 positions.

Grillo tillers also feature a “Helix” type spiral time pattern (with Bolo style tines) for a smoother tilling action. Both brands will leave up to 8” deep worked soil. Tillers can be used for primary cultivation but can over-pulverize the soil, resulting in degraded soil structure. Caution has to be taken not to over-till. Tillers are best used for secondary tillage, seedbed prep, mixing fertilizer and crop residues into the soil(provided they are not too long and fibrous, in which case they will tend to wrap around the tine shaft), shallow weed control and inter-season work. A Hiller/furrower accessory can be quickly attached behind all tillers to make furrows or push soil out for hilling or ridging. We also offer a depth-control wheel which allows precise-depth shallow tillage for weed control, adjustable from 0” to 3”.
