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:


BCS 730 with 8.5hp Kohler engine & 26” Tiller – $1800

Roughly a 2001 BCS 730 with Kohler 8.5hp recoil start engine & 4x8x16” wheels. We put new bearings, seals & tines in the 26” tiller, and we rebuilt the clutch and put some new cables on the tractor (as well as performing a complete service on the engine). Ready to work!

Available for local pickup at Earth Tools or will ship via motor freight (buyer pays shipping charges).

4-Foot Plastic Mulch Layer to fit BCS - $750

This implement did not get used much, as the previous owner sold their farm. The original Disc Hillers were lost in the moving shuffle, so there is a brand-new set of them with it (still in the blue plastic wrap!). Includes a male Quick-Coupling to fit BCS 749, 852, 853 tractors. (The hitch could be switched out for one to fit Grillo G110 by request) Recommended that tractor have at LEAST 5x10x20” wheels (or larger), and if you don’t want tire tracks underneath the plastic mulch, you would also need long axle extensions to put the tractor wheels outside the finished mulch width.

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

BCS 40” Power Sweeper – $800

This still has the ORIGINAL set of brushes on it (they have a little over 50% life left in them), so it hasn’t been used a whole lot. The current owner bought it used to do snow removal, but found that the Wisconsin winters just dump too much snow for a sweeper, so she bought a snowblower for her BCS and is selling this. Has the current “taper-3-jaw” type PTO hookup; can be adapted to older “spline-drive” BCS machines with a PTO adapter. (CANNOT be adapted to Grillo walking tractors!)

Available for local pickup at Earth Tools or will ship via motor freight (buyer pays shipping charges).

44” BCS Single-Action Sickle (Cutter) bar mower with oil-bath gearbox - $1000

This is roughly a 1993 model cutter bar. We have completely serviced it and installed a new upper “moving” blade assembly. This has the older “Splined” PTO hookup, so it will fit directly onto OLDER BCS machines (models 715, 725, 735, 605, 737) AND current Grillo tractors G85 - G110, OR a PTO adapter can be used to couple it with current BCS machines with the Taper-3-jaw PTO type. (A Quick-coupling “male” can be added as well, if desired.)

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

BCS 745 with original 14hp Kohler manual-start “Magnum” engine and 33” Super-Duty tiller – $4000 –

We have gone over this machine and rebuilt anything it needed…the owner spent about $1600 in total parts & labor. It still has the original “Magnum” series Kohler engine on it, which is the last small engine that was produced with a total cast-iron block. TOUGH engine! It is equipped with 8” wide, 22” tall ATV tires on BCS 10” adjustable-width rims. We have put new tines on the tiller implement…this is the original 33” adjustable=width Super-Duty tiller, but for some reason, the original side-panels of the tiller must have been removed and lost, and someone along the way made their own home-made side panels for it. They look and work fine, though. (NOTE: This is actually a “consignment” sale for one of our customers, but it is physically located here at Earth Tools, which is why we’re showing it in the “Used equipment at Earth Tools” section)

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

17.5 x 4” Steel Cage Wheels WITH “Outriggers” (like “Duals”) to fit BCS or Grillo – $240

Pair of LIKE-NEW 17.5” diameter x 4” wide Steel Cage Wheels WITH “Outriggers” (essentially making it into a set of “dual wheels” 8” wide on each side) to fit BCS or Grillo (also has bolt-patern to fit Mainline / SEP 1300 and 1500). I don’t think these have ever been used!

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

Erreppi PTO-Driven Trailer to fit Grillo G131 - $3400

This “powered-wheel” trailer converts a Grillo G131 tractor into a 4-wheel drive utility vehicle that will haul up to 1800 lbs. This was purchased from us new in 2020, and has NEVER BEEN USED.…The owner ended up getting different equipment to navigate his mountainous property, and traded it back in for a different implement. It is been stored indoors. Fits Grillo G131 ONLY…CANNOT be adapted to any other walk-behind tractor. (Plus: the G131 must be outfitted with a “synchronized PTO unit” to operate this trailer) This is an $850 savings compared to a “new” trailer. NOTE: The “seat” is removed in the pictures…rest assured, it DOES come with a seat for the driver!

Available for local pickup at Earth Tools in Owenton, KY, or can ship by Motor Freight (buyer pays shipping charges, and a $250 crating fee would apply as well).

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.

SEP / Mainline Commercial 1500 with implements - $2500 (Delaware)

This is a 1984 model Mainline 1500 Commercial Mountaineer (manufactured by the SEP company of Italy). It been used for home use.

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.

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.
