BCS Model 853 walk-behind tractor
(Shown with Caravaggi BIO-90 High-Speed Chipper implement)
The 800 series BCS machines are currently our best selling models, and the BCS 853 walk-behind tractor is the best-selling of the 800 series. The 4-speed transmission and standard steering brakes make these tractors excellent for just about any task: Plowing, tilling, mowing, haymaking, transport and snow removal applications…and many others. The BCS 853 walking tractor is the 800-series variant that has the “transport” speed available in the “Rear-PTO” mode, so it is more popular for users who plan on using the machine more (or transporting the machine longer distances) with Rear-PTO implements or utility trailers. Plenty of horsepower to handle any implement we offer (Exceptions: The reciprocating spader and 33” tiller implements, which require the stronger PTO mounting of the model 750]. 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).
