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:

Grillo G85d “Demo” tractor with 10hp Yamaha engine– $2300

“Demoed” a few times to customers, but still sold with brand-new warranty. 2019-model-year Grillo G85d with Yamhaha MZ300 10hp recoil-start engine and 5x10x20” wheels. Current sale price on a brand-new one is $2515. Available for pickup at Earth Tools in KY, or ships via motor freight (buyer pays shipping charges).

BCS 735 with 8hp DIESEL engine and 30” tiller – $3000

This is roughly a 1989-model-year BCS 735 in very good condition, equipped with a Lombardini/Kohler 8hp diesel engine with manual and electric start. This tractor model features 5 forward speeds and 2 reverse speeds when in the “rear-PTO” mode, and this translates to 2 working speeds when in the “front-PTO” mode. It also has independent steering brakes and lockable wheel differential. The tractor has been upgraded from the original splined PTO shaft to a Combo spline/“Flat” 3-tooth shaft. (NOTE: while this is stronger than the original PTO coupling, it is still not directly compatible with the “Tapered-3-tooth” PTO type without a PTO adapter, and there is NO quick-coupling system available for the 735, period.) The unit is equipped with 5x12x22” wheels. The 30” tiller with it has new oil seals & gaskets, and the tines are at least ¾ good. Available for pickup at Earth Tools in KY, or ships via motor freight (buyer pays shipping charges)

BCS 28” Snowblower – $575–SALE PENDING

This is a 28” wide, single-stage BCS-brand blower. It has the newer Tapered 3-tooth PTO input shaft, so it fits directly to the current BCS tractors. It can also fit the older BCS machines that have a “splined” PTO output coupling (602, 604, 605, 715, 725, 735, 737) with a PTO adapter (available from us as well). We do have a used PTO adapter available for $50 (they are $80 new). NOTE: the tractor shown in these pictures is NOT included, of course! Available for pickup at Earth Tools in KY, or ships via motor freight (buyer pays shipping charges)

22” Lawn mower to fit BCS 200 series tractors – $150

This is not typically something we post on our Bulletin Board, but we’re helping out a friend & customer by advertising this position for him…see below:

Used 2005 Gramegna model V84/25B-104 spading machine to fit a 4-wheel tractor with a PTO and 3-point hitch. This will not fit a walk-behind tractor, but some of you have larger tractors that this will fit. Good condition, garage kept.

5x10x20” FOAM-FILLED Adjustable-rim Wheels and Tires to fit BCS or Grillo (WA) - $300

(no photo)

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.

Available for local pickup, or will ship by UPS.

Contact: Joel Hansen @ 509-910-8937 or [email protected]

SEP/Mainline 28” Snow Blower (OH) - $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 [email protected]


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.
