BCS Model 750 walk-behind tractor

(shown with 33” tiller implement – This is a stock photo supplied by BCS, and it shows a diesel engine…which is not even available on this tractor model in North America! We will be updating this photo in the future)

This tractor uses the same transmission housing, handlebars, and internal gearing as the BCS 749 or 853, but differs in the following ways: 1. PTO coupling flange is cast iron (rather than aluminum), and has an integrated quick-coupling system that is specific to this tractor model. This heavier PTO mount allows connecting to high-weight / high-vibration tools such as the reciprocating spader or 33” tiller implement. (The BCS 33” tiller implement INCLUDES a quick-coupling component to couple with this tractor; this implement coupling must be purchased separately for ALL OTHER implements…so outfitting this tractor with implements can be more expensive than other BCS models) 2. Final-drive reduction-units on sides of transmission reduce ground speeds specifically for the aforementioned two implements, and helpful in general for soil-working tools…ALTHOUGH, the slower working speeds are a negative for mowing/haymaking applications. 3. OPTIONAL factory-made cast-iron “front weights” which can be mounted to brackets directly behind the engine to offset the weight of the very heavy soil-working implements this model can operate, such as the spader (these weights would need to be removed to run most other implements). This machine also features BCS’s new PowerSafe Hyrdo-mechanical “wet” clutch. FOR MORE DETAILS, PLEASE SEE OUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE, AND CLICK ON QUESTIONS #20 AND #12.

(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: G131, but Grillo G131 has a heavier transmission.
