A Walk-behind tractor (also called walking tractor, two-wheel tractor or hand tractor) is essentially a single-axle / 2 wheeled version of a 4-wheel farm tractor, capable of operating many different implements with a single power source. Walk-behind tractors are used worldwide for small-scale agricultural, horticultural, industrial, landscaping and home use. Unlike the psuedo-professional equipment of the same physical size produced for the U.S. Market such as DR® and Troy-Bilt®, European 2-wheel tractors are built to standards of quality and durability expected of agricultural equipment…Just like a 4-wheel farm tractor, these rugged two-wheel machines are designed to give thousands of hours of service life with their All-Gear Drive and Automotive-style clutch.
Of the 30 or so companies manufacturing 2-wheel tractors in Europe, BCS is by far the largest. Founded in 1942 near Milan, Italy, BCS sells their equipment in 80 countries and has over 500 dealers in North America. Grillo, from Cesena, Italy, has also been manufacturing walk-behind tractors for over 60 years. Grillo and BCS have worked together in the past, but they currently operate as competitors… Earth Tools has chosen to represent both the BCS and Grillo brand walk-behind tractors, in order to give our customers a more complete tractor selection.
Earth Tools Inc, located near the population center of the U.S. in Kentucky, differs from all the other walk-behind tractor dealers in North America in several ways:

SUSTAINABLE SYSTEMS division!
SPECIALIZATION: Experience Counts. The Earth Tools founder has been using, selling & servicing walk-behind tractors since 1977, and Earth Tools is currently the only full-time power-equipment dealership in the USA dedicated solely to Walk-behind tractors. We are currently the largest walk-behind tractor dealership in North America by a huge margin (over 6 times larger than the next largest dealer). (Because of our 40+ years of experience with these machines, BCS America regularly calls us for technical consultation!) Our 15 employees have more combined experience with BCS and Grillo walking tractors than anyone else on the continent.
More Implements: We offer and stock more implements for walk-behind tractors than any other dealer in North America, greatly expanding on the implement offerings of such companies as BCS. We currently stock over 45 different types of implements, some of which are “Earth Tools Exclusives”.
We are the original (and in some cases, only) importers or manufacturers of the following products, which we have introduced into the North American market over the years to fit walk-behind tractors:
Service & Parts: We provide complete service and parts for all equipment we sell. Not only do we have a dedicated in-house service staff, we also keep over $250,000 worth of spare parts in stock, including new and used parts for ACME engines found on older BCS machines (See Acme Engine Parts). Parts orders usually ship out the same day or the next day via the parcel carrier of your choice, and we have service staff on-hand to help you through any repair that might be needed. (No, we don’t transfer your call to Pakistan for technical service!!)
Replacement Engines: We carry a full line of replacement engines to fit all BCS walk-behind tractors. We also carry conversion kits to convert older BCS machines to current engines.
Price: Discounted prices on all tractors, implements and accessories.
Reasonable Shipping Rates: For customers beyond a comfortable “driving distance”, we offer equipment shipped 99% assembled at very reasonable rates… right to your door, not just to a shipping terminal. All tractors set up & test run by us prior to shipping. We also offer a Delivery Service for qualifying orders within our region. Call for a quote!
