Grillo tractors have the same legendary reputation as BCS. The Grillo company was founded in 1953 in Italy with passion to provide quality soil working equipment to small scale farmers.

The Concept of the Walking Tractor
Walk-behind tractors are very versatile machines. Throughout this website they will be referred to walk behind tractors or walking tractors, but these terms are interchangeable and mean exactly the same thing. The handlebars are capable of rotating 180 degrees to allow different functioning implements. With the handle bars turned in the engine out front position (Figure 1 below), the tractor is ready to be used mainly for soil working applications. Soil working implements available for BCS and Grillo walk behind tractors includes a tiller, rotary plow, power harrow, plastic mulch layer, spring tine cultivator, hiller/furrower, moldboard plow, ridger, and root digger. See the attachments tab for more information on these attachments.
Rotation of the handlebars to where they are located directly above the engine (figure 2 below) is mainly utilized for mowing and other applications. A wide variety of mowing attachments are available that include the sickle bar mower, rotary brush mower, flail mower, HD combo mower, and the lawn mower. Some mowing applications allow the use of the mowing sulky, which allow the operator to ride along during the process. See the accessories tab above for more information. The dozer blade, chipper/shredder, and sweeper are also used in this position.
Attachment interchange is performed by simply removing 2 nuts and sliding the implement off the transmission studs. For a more speedy attachment swap, a quick coupling system (figure 3 below) is also available that requires just the flip of a lever and a jiggle of the handlebars to release the attachment.
Why buy a walking tractor?
Walk behind tractors use one single power source for a variety of tasks. No more dedicated power units for each individual task with multiple engines to maintain. With the quick coupler, attachments are easily exchanged and ready to use within seconds. The tractors are right at home in tight spots and steep inclines, spaces in which a tradition tractor could not operate safely. Features like a differential lock seen in the professional series tractors definitely make maneuverability a snap. If you are interested in upgrading your garden equipment, starting a professional market farm, or maintaining food plots and hunting land; BCS and Grillo have a lot to offer.
How to decide on a tractor?
When deciding on a walk behind tractor, consider all the tasks you need to perform in your situation. Not just tasks you need to perform now, but tasks that you may need to perform later down the road, because you can bet that your BCS or Grillo will last many years and many generations. It is important to choose a tractor that has the capability to handle the implements you need and the size of the area they are needed for. Refer to the compatibility chart on each tractor page to match your tasks with the right tractor. Always feel free to give us a call to talk about which BCS or Grillo tractor is right for you.
