condition: good
make / manufacturer: BCS
model name / number: 750 PS Powersafe
The BCS 750PS is a really huge 33” wide monster tiller from Italy. But it's remarkably easy to use and turn at the ends of rows - just let the machine do the work. Once you get the rhythm of how it operates, you'll really like it. BCS is a popular tiller in our area; Starbright acres has two or three. Just ask Ken, he loves them.

It has an awesome PTO, and the entire handlebar assembly can be swiveled around in the opposite direction which is very useful. It's really quite unique. You can use it to haul things in an expensive little trailer you can buy from BCS, or you can rig something up on your own. (The trailer even has a seat!) This machine is very versatile if you want it to be.

I bought it from the local Sacramento dealer, Bliss Power Lawn Equipment (on Fulton & Arden) in 2017. This “two-wheel tractor” retails for $7,600 new. It has not been used very much, and it has a new battery. It's mostly been in storage (it's a long story). What's really sweet about this tiller is that it has an electric start. And it always works! I love that!

I'm looking for $3,500 for it.

OVERVIEW
Designed primarily for professional agricultural and horticultural use, the PowerSafe 750 is the only BCS tractor model equipped to handle the 33" version of our Rear-Tine Tiller. The tractor’s reinforced transmission and heavy-duty, cast iron mounting system also make it a great choice for the Swivel Rotary Plow, 35” Flail Mower, and 33” Two-Stage Snow Thrower.
Designed for the most demanding applications, an exclusive feature of the model 750 is a unique set of wheel speed reduction gears resulting in a slow “creeper” speed, even though its tires are 22” in diameter. Compared to other models with the same tire size, the 750’s tiller tines take 30% more “bites” per forward foot of travel, the flail mower blades take 30% more “cuts” per forward foot of travel, etc. This translates into tines digging deeper in a single pass, flails creating a smaller particle size, etc.
Also designed for demanding applications, the 750 features BCS’s patented PowerSafe clutch – the oil-cooled, multi-plate clutch that easily handles long hours of tough work.
To assure that those long hours are NOT demanding for the operator, the 750 couples the convenience of Differential Drive with individual wheel brakes and on-demand differential lock when positive traction is needed. To offset the effort of maneuvering heavy attachments, optional 76-pound transmission weights and a 26-pound bumper weight kit are available.
Because the 750 was designed to operate BCS's heaviest attachments, such as the 180 lb 33" Tiller, the Quick Hitch system was considered a necessity rather than a convenience. For this reason, Model 750 features a cast-iron rear transmission cover that includes an integrated steel tang. Each implement you intend to connect to the 750 will require its own 750 bushing.
