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:


BCS 38” Lawn Mower with Bagger - $950

This is roughly a 1990 model mower, in good working condition. Fit BCS tractors 12hp and larger (gas) or 10hp and larger (diesel). The removable Bagger has hardly ever been used, so it is in excellent condition. The caster wheels have been upgraded from the original plastic-rim pneumatic wheels to steel-rim solid-rubber wheels with bearings. The blade carriers and blades (about $200 worth) were replaced last year and are in perfect condition. Currently equipped with “Flat-3-jaw” PTO to fit older BCS 605, 737, 745 and 945 model tractors, but this can be changed in seconds with a $45 coupling, which makes it fit the newer “Tapered-3-jaw” PTO that the current BCS tractors have. ALSO: This deck is equipped with the “Riser” gearbox, meaning it ONLY fits to tractors equipped with 12” rim wheels (wheel sizes 5x12x22” or 6.5x12x23”). Can be equipped with a Male quick-coupling if desired ($85), to interface with the current quick-coupling system on BCS tractors.

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

BCS 24” Snowblower - NEW! - $850

This 24” snow blower has NEVER BEEN USED. Still has the factory bubble-wrap around the output chute! It has been sitting in a shed for a couple years, but it never saw any service. Fits BCS tractors 6.5hp to 10hp (will technically fit larger tractors as well, but it is not heavy enough to properly counter-balance the heavier engines on the larger models.) It is equipped with the current Taper-3-jaw PTO, and an adapter can be used to fit it to older BCS tractors with “splined” type PTO.

Local pick up at Earth Tools in Owenton, KY, OR can ship via motor freight (buyer pays shipping charges).

BCS 36” Dozer/Scraper Blade - NEW! - $475 SALE PENDING

This 36” blade has NEVER BEEN USED. It has been sitting in a shed for a couple years, but it never saw any service. Fits BCS and Grillo walking tractors 8hp and up (tractor will need to be equipped with wheel weights for best performance with this implement).

40” Power Sweeper to fit BCS - $750

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).

2010 model R2 Rinaldi MTL75 30” Power Harrow - $1300 (OR)

This is the older, HEAVIER version of the R2 Rinaldi 30” Power Harrow…has the “grader blade” in front that makes it good for landscaping uses as well as gardening – you just have to put an adequate amount of front-weight on the engine bumper to counter-balance this heavier model (50 to 75 lbs). Lightly used in sandy soil / light weed pressure. Has a male quick-coupling on it to fit current BCS quick-coupling system; fits BCS tractors 12hp and larger (gas), 10hp and larger (diesel) with 5x12x22” wheels or larger.

Molon 5-foot Hayrake / Tedder to fit BCS - $2200 OBO (NC)

In excellent shape. Used for about 10 hours. Some rake tines have been replaced due to raking too low to the ground and breaking the original tines. Was greased after every couple of hours of use. Works great for small-scale hay / haylage production. Selling this hay rake because it is too small for the owners’ current expanded dairy operation. INCLUDES “Male” Quick-coupling for current BCS tractors. Fits BCS walking tractors 8hp and up with current Taper-3-Jaw PTO coupling (an adapter can be used to fit to older BCS “Spline-PTO” machines). Current “New” price $2560 with quick-coupling

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!!

SALE PENDING: CAEB MiniCargo Front-Mount Dump Cart - Virtually NEW! - $1200 OBO (WA)

It is currently equipped with a quick-coupling to fit current-model BCS walking tractors equipped with a quick-coupling system (739, 749, 852, 853) and it will fit some older model BCS machines as well (feel free to contact Earth Tools for application info).

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.
