BCS Model 749 walk-behind tractor

(shown with 30” tiller implement – stock European photo, U.S. models differ slightly)

The model 749 is identical in its transmission and features to the BCS 853, with the exception of the 749 having NO “transport” speed, so transport carts are not as practical for this unit. Otherwise, it uses the same implement selection as the 853. This machine also features BCS’s new PowerSafe Hyrdo-mechanical “wet” clutch. This size/class of walk-behind tractor represents the most versatile machine for all-around use, and is our most popular class of tractor. Available standard with 5x10x20” OR 5x12x22” wheels (other wheels available by request…we can discuss what would be best for your application).

(NOTE: The model number of this unit follows the European model number sequence, rather than the “Americanized” BCS model sequence which has existed in North America since 1995, which is why it seems a bit out of order).

Comparable model in Grillo brand tractor: Grillo G110
