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. Here’s what we’ve got:


2009 BCS 853 with manual start Honda gas engine - $2650 –SALE PENDING–

We have gone over this 853 and repaired whatever was needed. It is equipped with 5x10x20” wheels and it has a “Female” quick-coupling on it. Ready to rock!

Available for local pickup at Earth Tools in Owenton, KY, or will ship via Motor Freight (buyer pays shipping charges).

2004 BCS 948 with NEW manual start Honda gas engine and 33” Super-Duty Tiller - $4200

The 948 is the predecessor to the current model 750, and it has the heavier-duty 3-stud PTO mount to handle very heavy soilworking implements like the 33” super-duty tiller and the reciprocating spader. We have installed a brand-new Honda GX390 engine on this tractor, and also updated the steering-brake controls to the “hand-grip” type. The 33” Super-Duty tiller has new oil seals installed, and brand-new tines.

Available for local pickup at Earth Tools in Owenton, KY, or will ship via Motor Freight (buyer pays shipping charges).

CAEB “MiniCargo” Front-mount Dump Cart to fit BCS tractors – $1000

This is about a 2005 model, but it is still in very good shape. It has the older “grey” CAEB paint scheme instead of the newer “yellow”, but it is the same cart as the new ones, with parking brake system and manual front dumping. Rated to haul 1000 lbs. Has a built-in current-type BCS male quick-coupling on it, so it mounts to any post-1995 BCS tractor equipped with their standard quick-coupling system (NOT to model 660 or 750). Available for local pickup at Earth Tools in Owenton, KY, or will ship via Motor Freight (buyer pays shipping charges).

Has the current “tapered-3-tooth” PTO for mounting to current BCS walking tractors; will mount to older “spline-PTO” BCS tractors or Grillo tractors with an $85 PTO adapter.

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

2020 Berta 30” Flail Mower to fit BCS - $1800 (FL)

We are selling our 30” flail mower purchased from Earth Tools because we decided to upgrade to the 34” model.

The mower has been greased per recommendations and stored under shelter in our pole barn, and never exposed to rain or left out in the open. It is in good working condition and the only reason for selling such a new unit is because we bought a bigger one!

Caravaggi TRX-50 High-Speed Chipper to fit BCS - $1000 OBO (NC)

Used for two years for small scale grass (haylage) and silage production. Has less than 25 hours of use. The reason I am selling is that it is too small for producing haylage/silage for 4 dairy cows in a reasonable amount of time (great for 1 or 2 cows!). Works great for silage if your moisture content is right. In excellent condition, always washed out after use. Used one time to chip brush. Fits BCS walking tractors 8 to 10hp with current Taper-3-Jaw PTO coupling (an adapter can be used to fit to older BCS “Spline-PTO” machines). NOTE: Tractor in picture NOT included!!

NEW BCS 30” Cutter (Sickle) bar mower – $1100 OBO

  • NEW & UNUSED: BCS 30” single-action cutter (sickle) bar mower with heavy-duty oil-bath gearbox. Purchased new from Earth Tools in 2014 but never used (customer also purchased a 47” double-action cutter bar at the same time…he thought he would need to narrower bar to get between some obstacles, but ended up changing his layout and never used the smaller mower!) Still has new extra blade assembly with it (shown in cardboard in picture, tucked under mower), and also equipped with a 3” PTO extension and a weight kit, because the tractor it would have operated on has a DIESEL engine, which is much heavier than a gas engine and required the extra extension & weight for proper counter-balance. If applying to a gas-powered walking tractor, these accessories may not be required. Has the current BCS taper-3-tooth PTO hookup. (The photo shows it equipped with a “male” quick-coupling to fit BCS, but this “male” is NOT included in the price, it is $80 extra.) This mower will fit Grillo (or older BCS) walk-behind tractors if a PTO adapter is used. PRICE ON A NEW MOWER LIKE THIS, WITH THE SAME ACCESSORIES, IS $1423

Local pickup in Central City, CO or buyer pays shipping (can be disassembled and shipped via UPS in 2 boxes).

32” Snowblower to fit BCS (TN)

The fellow who originally bought this implement from us has passed away. His widow is keeping the BCS tractor and a few implements, but this snowblower is no longer needed…it is a 32” Rescia Guiliano Single-stage snowblower with integrated BCS current 749 - 853 quick-coupling (This was purchased slightly used by this owner…never used since they got it, though!): $800

Local pickup in Newport, TN, or buyer pays shipping charges – freight can be arranged through Earth Tools.

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.

FARM WORK OFFER (KY)

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:


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.
