The BCS 853 and 852 Walk behind tractor is one of the most
versatile tractors in the BCS lineup. Some Arizona farmers are
declaring this tractor to be the best machine they have ever
The 853 and 852 tractors both have three forward and three
reverse speeds ranging from 0.7, 1.7 and 2.7 mph. In addition to
those three speeds this tractor has one additional transport speed
of 8.3 mph. This transport speed is perfect for ride on implements
such as the utility trailer and mowing sulky.
The 853 and 852 BCS walk behind tractors are identical except:
The 853 8.3 mph speed only works in rear mount mode. Such as
when a tiller is attached.
The 852 8.3 mph speed only works in front mount mode. Such as
when the handlebars are reversed 180 degrees for a mower.
This BCS walk behind tractor is much more than a tiller. It can pull
a plow, mow, pull four seed planters, pump water and much more.
