Walk-behind Tractors
Grillo G85D - 9 or 10HP

Grillo Model G85 walk-behind tractor

(Shown with 22” tiller implement)

Our most popular solid-axle (that is, without differential) tractor. This model is well suited for home gardening, stationary applications (pressure washer, chipper/shredder, log splitter, etc.), some snow removal and transport tasks. Mowing applications would be somewhat limited on this model, due to relatively slow overall working speeds (max. 1.5 MPH).

Transmission compares directly to BCS models 710 / 718 / 722. Has heavy-duty, fully adjustable handlebars like 718 & 722.
