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 712 with 18” tiller - $1000 (SC)

BCS Model 712-GX5 walk-behind tractor and 18” tiller, in operating condition. This is a machine that was typically sold in to “Rental” use, due to it’s very basic transmission design (only one forward and one reverse speed, no differential or brakes. VERY SIMPLE.) Has a GX160 (5hp) Honda engine on it. It would be good for a small home garden. Has limited versatility for other implements, but it can run a small sickle bar, small chipper-shredder, and a few other items. Available for local pickup in Chesnee, SC, or can be shipped by motor freight (buyer pays freight charges).

BRAND-NEW Grillo G110 with Tiller & Flail mower (OR) - $6500

This very nice lady purchased this machine from us in November 2018, and then in January, her landlord canceled her lease for the farm-land she was going to use it on. IT HAS NEVER BEEN USED. It is in a storage unit in Eugene OR, and available for local pickup. It is a Grillo G110 with 13hp Electric-start Honda engine and 5x12x22” wheels, 30” tiller, and 30” Berta flail mower.

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.

BCS 38” Mower (CA) - PRICE REDUCED: $2000

New condition, never used! BCS 38” Lawn Mower w/ Grass Catcher. Has 3” PTO extension (for use with 5x12x22 or larger tractor wheels) and male quick coupling. Originally purchased from Earth Tools in 2013, stored indoors.

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. They have already been filled with solid rubber foam, so they are flat-proof, and have extra weight for extra traction. New set of wheels like this (with foam-filling) is $405. Located in Selah, WA. Available for local pickup, or will ship by UPS.

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.

SHIPPING: If you sell something large that needs to be shipped via “truck freight”, we can arrange the goods to be shipped using our freight account. This way, you “tap into” our huge shipping discount, helping to keep a long-distance sale from being too costly for the buyer. Goods can be picked up from your location (most of the time). We charge $50 per shipment for this service in addition to the actual freight cost. Payment by VISA, Mastercard, or Discover card is accepted. (Shipping charges are usually paid for by the BUYER of the goods, unless you negotiate something different.)
