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 roughly once a week, 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. NOTE: NO INTERNATIONAL (Including Canadian) SALES OF USED EQUIPMENT!! Customs laws prohibit USED agricultural equipment from crossing International borders, unless a “Certificate of Fumigation” can be provided – and we don’t have any way to Fumigate equipment. Here is the used equipment we have available:


2017 BCS 853 with 13hp Honda engine, with several implements

We sold this equipment new to this fellow in 2017, and he has sold his larger property and is now using a BCS 722 for his needs. So the “big boy” has to find a new home! This unit is equipped with the Honda GX390 manual-start engine, 5x12x22” wheels, “Barbell-weight” wheel-weight mounting posts, a Grass/Debris screen, and a Quick-Coupling “female” installed on it. It has been garage-kept and is in perfect operating condition. The equipment is fairly low-hours…the tines on the tiller are still ORIGINAL, and there is virtually no wear on them, as you can see in the picture below. The Potato/root digger plow has never even been used. Here is a list of what is available:

BCS 853 recoil start tractor, with debris screen, “barbell”-type wheel weight hangers, and “Female” quick-coupling : $4000
BCS 30” Tiller with quick-coupling “male”: $700
BCS 38” Lawn Mower with Grass Catcher, with 3” PTO extension and quick-coupling “male”: 2000
Ravenna 16-cubic-foot deluxe trailer with brakes & tow coupler: 1200
R2 Rinaldi 30” Drop Seeder / Spreader, with drawbar & quick-coupling “male”: $1300
Aldo Biagioli Potato / Root Digger PLow, with tool carrier & drawbar to fit quick-coupling: 250

PRICE FOR ALL AS “PACKAGE”:$9000

Located at Earth Tools facility in Owenton, KY, and available for local pick up there, OR can ship via motor freight at buyers expense.

BCS 853 with 11hp Kohler (Lombardini) DIESEL engine, with 30” tiller & NEW Single Rotary Plow - $7000

This is a 2013 model BCS 853 that we sold new to a customer in Florida. He has “downsized” his property and no longer needs a unit this large, so it is for sale. It has electric start (with backup manual starter), 5x12x22” Foam-Filled wheels, “Barbell-weight” wheel-weight mounting posts, a Grass/Debris screen, and a Quick-Coupling “female” installed on it. We have gone over the tractor and replaced all the fuel lines & filters and done a complete check-out (it didn’t need much…this is a low-hours machine). Sold with a 30” BCS Tiller (which we also went over, and put a NEW set of tines on) and a Berta “single” version Rotary Plow that has NEVER BEEN USED…as you can see in the picture, the plow tips and plowshares have NO paint worn off them…this has never been in the soil! $7000 for all

Located at Earth Tools facility in Owenton, KY, and available for local pick up there, OR can ship via motor freight at buyers expense.

BCS 735 with NEW 9.5hp Kohler engine - $1600

This is a 1988 model BCS 735, and we have installed a brand-new Kohler CH395 9.5hp recoil start engine on it. It is equipped with 5x10x20” wheels, and it features 5 forward speeds and 2 reverse speeds (in “tilling” mode…this translates to 2 speeds forward and reverse for “mowing” applications), and also has a lockable differential and independent steering brakes. This unit has the older “splined” PTO…new BCS implements can be fitted to it using a PTO adapter, OR some new Grillo implements will fit directly on it, since they use the same “spline” PTO. We have gone over the tractor thoroughly and replaced anything it needed. It takes roughly the same implement selection as the current BCS 739 or Grillo G107.

Local pick up at Earth Tools in Owenton, KY, OR can ship via motor freight at buyers expense.

BCS 745 with NEW 14hp Kohler engine and 33” Super-duty Tiller- $4000

This is also shown in the “for sale by owner” section, since we do not actually own it…it is a consignment sale, but it is at our location in KY, so we thought we’d list it here as well) This is roughly a 1990 model BCS 745, and we have installed a brand-new Kohler CH440 14hp recoil start engine on it. It is equipped with 6.5x12x23” wheels, and it features 5 forward speeds and 2 reverse speeds (in “tilling” mode…this translates to 2 speeds forward and reverse for “mowing” applications), and also has a lockable differential and independent steering brakes. This is the direct predecessor of the current BCS 750, so it is the brawniest unit BCS offers, and it has the heavier 3-stud PTO mount to be able to handle heavy implements like the Reciprocating Spader and the 170-pound 33” Super-Duty Tiller that is on this thing. This unit has the older “Combo spline/flat-3-jaw” PTO…new BCS brand implements can be fitted to it using a PTO adapter, OR some new Grillo implements will fit directly on it, since they use the “spline” PTO…or, if you are interested in implements made by independent implement manufacturers (like our Berta Rotary Plow or Flail Mower, or the R2 Rinaldi Power Harrows), we offer PTO flanges on those implements that fit to the 745 directly. We have gone over the tractor thoroughly and replaced anything it needed. Has a brand-new engine bumper with 50 lb. weight kit on it to counter-balance the weight of the Super-Duty tiller. (this weight may have to removed when using lighter implements) It takes roughly the same implement selection as the current BCS 750.

Currently located at Earth Tools in Owenton, KY, and available for local pick up there. OR can ship via motor freight at buyers expense.

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

This was originally sold with a removable 1-bushel bagger, but the bagger is missing from this one (and a new bagger is over $300!!)…so we are just selling it as a side-discharge mower. This ONLY fits the BCS models 203, 204 and 205…there is NO adapter to mount it to any other BCS model. Available for local pickup at Earth Tools in Owenton, KY, or will ship disassembled via parcel carrier (buyer pays shipping charges).

BCS 745 with NEW 14hp Kohler engine and 33” Super-duty Tiller- $4000

This is roughly a 1990 model BCS 745, and we have installed a brand-new Kohler CH440 14hp recoil start engine on it. It is equipped with 6.5x12x23” wheels, and it features 5 forward speeds and 2 reverse speeds (in “tilling” mode…this translates to 2 speeds forward and reverse for “mowing” applications), and also has a lockable differential and independent steering brakes.

Grillo G110 with Rotary Plow, Dozer/Scraper blade- $4900 (CA)

2019 Grillo model G110 with 13hp Electric start Honda engine and 5x12x22” wheels, originally purchased at Earth Tools. Less than 50 hours of run time. All implements equipped with quick-couplings.

BCS 725 with 20” Tiller and furrower- $1350 OBO (UT)

This is around a 1982 model BCS 725. The original Italian ACME engine has been replaced with a GX240 8hp Honda engine, which only has about 10 hours of run time on it. Has 4x8x16” wheels, and 20” tiller. Also has the hiller/Furrower accessory to go behind the tiller. All in good working condition.

Local pick up in Cedar City, UT, or can ship via motor freight at buyers expense. NOTE: Seller may deliver, depending on buyers location.

BCS 204 with 30” sickle bar mower FOR PARTS - $400 (NY)

This machine has the older BCS-brand 5hp engine, which needs work on the ignition system, and the parts are so expensive that the current owner does not want to mess with it. However, the 30” sickle bar implement will fit the BCS 203 and 205 models, and many of the engine and transmission parts will fit the earlier model 205 machines. SO – if you have an older 204 or 205 with the BCS 5hp engine, this would be a GREAT “parts” machine.

Local pick up in Lansing NY, OR ships via motor freight (buyer pays shipping charges)

30” Sickle bar and 20” Snowblower to fit BCS 203, 204 or 205 - (NY)

These implements are in working order, and will fit to the older BCS models 203, 204 or 205. There is NO adapter to put them on any other machine. Note: the spring-clamp coupling system for the PTO mount came with 2 different length spring-clamps, depending on the year of manufacture…if the ones on these implements are the wronf length for the tractor you happen to have, the “correct” clamps are available from Earth Tools.

$300 each, or $500 for both combined

LOCAL PICKUP ONLY in Locke, NY.

BIO-150 Chipper / Shredder to fit Grillo G110 with quick-coupling - $2000 OBO (ME)

This chipper was purchased from us in 2019, and the owner has done what he needs to do with it, so now it is looking for a new home. VERY LITTLE USED. (NOTE: CANNOT be adapted to other Grillo walk-behind tractor models OR any BCS walk-behind tractors!!)

Will deliver for cost of fuel anywhere in Maine or New Hampshire. Otherwise, available for local pickup in Machias, ME OR ships via motor freight (buyer pays shipping charges)

28” Snow blower AND Berta Rotary Plow to fit Grillo (MN)

These implements are over 10 years old, but have seen very little use. (The plow has been used little enough that just the original set of “points” on the wear tips has been worn down…the tips can be rotated 3 more times to wear off all 4 “points”.) The current owner does not need them, so they are for sale! The Berta Single Rotary Plow and 28” Rescia Giuliano brand single-stage snowblower will fit a Grillo G85d, G107 or G110 walk-behind tractor. If your Grillo tractor is equipped with a quick-coupling PTO system, a “male” quick coupling can be added to either implement. Use of the rotary plow requires a minimum wheel size of 5x10x20”, and axle extensions may be required. (NOTE: The rotary plow CAN be adapted to a BCS walking tractor, if desired…but the snowblower cannot. Call Earth Tools at 502-484-3988 for details)

Rotary Plow: $1000

Snowblower: $1000

Available for pickup in the St Paul MN area, OR will ship, if buyer arranges & pays for shipping.

The owner of this John Deere 44” snow blade has modified it to fit a Grillo G85d or G107 walk-behind tractor that is equipped with the quick-coupling system. He also is selling a set of BRAND NEW tire chains (with spring-loaded tensioners) to fit 5x12x22” or 6.5x12x23” wheels.

BLADE: $175 (Local pickup only –located in Nappannee, IN)

CHAINS: $75 (Will ship–buyer pays shipping costs)

BIO-100 Chipper / Shredder to fit BCS - $900 (GA)

This is a mid-1980s model Caravaggi BIO-100 chipper/shredder, designed to fit the OLDER BCS tractors with “spline-drive” PTO. A PTO adapter is available to make it fit newer BCS machines with Taper-3-jaw PTO, OR it will work on Grillo tractors G107-G110 IF the wheel-direction lever of the tractor is in the “engine-forward” position. This chipper has been well-maintained and has relatively few hours on it.

Local pick up ONLY in Plainville, GA.

28” Rescia Snowblower (NY) – $950

28” Rescia Guiliano snowblower - brand new, NEVER USED. Has integrated quick-coupling, fits all 1995+ BCS tractors 8hp and up. Local pickup only, located in Brooklyn NY.

Contact: Matthew Sheehan 646-670-1655 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.

WANTED: USED/JUNK SEP (MAINLINE) LADYBUG OR 2+2

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.
