BCS Model 722 walk-behind tractor

(Shown with 20” tiller implement)

The BCS 722 has the same transmission as the BCS 718 tractor but with more horsepower to handle a larger array of implements, such as the wood splitter and 40” power sweeper, which the 718 lacks the power for. This tractor is a nice size for the average home gardener, and will handle a variety of other tasks well, except for larger mowing applications…Top mowing speed on the smaller (710 through 722) BCS machines is about 1.4 mph, so mowers are only practical on this size machine for small areas.

Comparable model in Grillo brand tractor: G85 8 or 9hp
