Walk-behind Tractors
BCS 750

BCS Model 852 or 853 walk-behind tractor

(Shown with Kohler diesel engine, 5x12x22” wheels & 26” Berta flail mower implement)

The 800 series BCS machines are currently our best selling tractors. The extra transmission speed compared to other BCS models and standard steering brakes make these tractors excellent for larger mowing, haymaking, transport and snow removal applications, in addition to soil-working tasks. Plenty of horsepower to handle any implement we offer [Exceptions: the reciprocating spader and 33” tiller implements, which require the stronger PTO mounting of the model 750]. This size/class of walk-behind tractor represents the most versatile machine for all-around use, and is our most popular class of tractor. Available standard with 5x10x20” OR 5x12x22” wheels (other wheels available by request…we can discuss what would be best for your application).

Comparable machine in Grillo brand tractor: Grillo G110
