My New Toy cost me 4 pints of strawberries.

Just picked up this BCS 725 two wheel tractor this evening. I traded it for 4 pints of strawberries and some vegetable starts next spring. :D

I think I did ok on this trade, what do you think?

There also maybe a rototiller attachment for it.

Very good deal, that is more like a gift. I have on with the cutting bar and a roto tiller. The rototiller is like a small one that would go on a farm tractor. Snag it if you can.

I real like this mower. :D

This morning I drained the gas tank, replaced the fuel lines and filter. Removed the carburetor bowl and cleaned. Blew out the passage ways and jets. Filled with fresh gas and away she went. Also had to lube the control cables and linkages.

Took her out for a spin. Very nice. :D Now I want the tiller attachment for sure. :wink:

Mine was a gift from my brother in law. What is extra nice is they are so beefy and gears not belts.Get the tiller if you can is is a powerful diggger. The handle bars spin so it becomes a rear end tiller. I am told you can also get a ride behind seat for them. How cool is that?

Here is a photo of it with a tiller on it.

Tom,

Looks like you have the same 8Hp Kohler, but the wheels look bigger. Maybe not, looks like they are a little above middle gas tank.

I'll be looking for the engine grill / guard. Part of it is still bolted on, but as you can see the rest is missing.

You made me go look, it says Kohler Magnum 14 on it; I think that means it is 14 Hp. It does have large wheels. I can tell you they are fine machines so you scored big time. I have used Troy built rear tine tillers and the BCS machines make them look like toys. The tines on the tiller are thick like on a farm tiller. Have you put it in high gear yet; you have to run to keep up with the machine. Score the tiller man. Do you know if there are other things that you can put on them?

Tom,

Yes, 14hp. Nice. What model is yours. Looking again, you must have a larger model.

I haven't done a complete search. Take a look at this.

Wow there are lots of things we can put on them. I would like the Berta Rotary Plow as it makes mounds and that is the way I plant. The flail looks cool aslo. The link you posted just takes me to their main page, what is it you want?
