PTO = Power Take Off (where the implement attaches to the tractor)
This popular accessory allows you to change implements on your walk-behind tractor in 30-60 seconds without tools. All they require is occasional light greasing and cleaning, and the quick couplings will save you hours of time and the trouble of replacing worn implement mounting studs and nuts, especially if you have multiple implements you are changing in the same season.
The way the quick-coupling system works: “Female” quick-coupling component fits on the TRACTOR. Each IMPLEMENT needs to be equipped with a quick-coupling “Male”. Some implements we offer have built-in male quick-couplings on them…ask a salesperson for details.
NOTE: see our Specials page to see current promotions on Quick Couplings with purchases of BCS model 732 through 853 Tractors, and Grillo G110 tractor.
GRILLO QUICK COUPLING
kit includes 1 female, 2 males
NOTE: The Grillo G85/107 quick couplings listed can ALSO be used on the earlier BCS models 602, 604, 715, 725, 735 (and 737 and 605 models with SPLINE-ONLY PTO shafts), but it is NOT compatible with old-style “T-handle” BCS spline-shaft quick coupling individual components, which are out of production.
EXTRA NOTE! Installation of this Grillo-manufactured quick coupling system on BCS models 725 and 735 requires removal of tow hitch from tractor.
For implements that attach at the PTO flange, but do not require a PTO shaft hookup (such as dozer blades, etc.), we manufacture this accessory in-house to save our customers the cost of having to buy a quick-coupling “male” with a shaft in it…
Sometimes this accessory is necessary to help balance the tractor properly with particular lightweight implements. It works by simply extending the PTO mount and therefore moving the implement weight further from the axle, which is the “fulcrum” of the tractor, and therefore achieving balance through leverage. Especially necessary when heavier engines, such as diesels, are used. Occasionally the PTO extensions are also used to gain more clearance between the implement and the wheels, especially when larger-than-standard wheels are desired for the tractor. Be sure to ask if any of these extensions are required for the tractor and/or implements you purchase. These accessories can be attached to the tractor OR the implement, whichever is more convenient.
Available in 3” lengths; can be coupled together if needed for longer lengths. (some random 6” lengths may be available, but technically these have been discontinued)
Several adapters available to serve a variety of functions:
Allows BCS implements with newer style (Post—1995) PTO shaft to attach to older BCS tractors (or, in some cases, certain Grillo Tractors).
Allows BCS implements (or in some cases certain Grillo implements) with older-style splined (Pre-1995) PTO shaft to attach to new BCS tractors.
Adapts the G131 Grillo to the smaller series Grillo PTO and is necessary when using some implements on the G131 (cutter bar mowers, log splitter, chipper/shredder, power sweeper, scraper blades, fertilizer spreader, lawn mower, Disk mower, hayrake and baler…may have to be used in conjunction with Adapter 1 for some of these applications).
Converts the current BCS PTO mount to a 6-spline, 1 3/8” shaft, identical to the 540 rpm shaft of any full-size tractor. Allows certain low-power-requirement tractor PTO type stationary implements to be powered by your walk-behind such as sprayer pumps, grain elevators, small PTO generators, etc. Keep in mind, though, that the BCS PTO turns 990 rpm at max engine speed, so if you are powering an RPM-sensitive implement, you cannot run the engine over ½ throttle!! This accessory can be used on Grillo G85 - 107 in conjunction with Adapter 1.
