Time to clean out the warehouse! We accumulate an assortment of used and “demo” equipment over time, and they need to find new homes. A 90 day parts and labor warranty is included unless otherwise stated. Here’s what we’ve got:

BCS 735 Diesel with 30” tiller $2600

1988 BCS 735 with 6LD400 10.5 HP Lombardini diesel engine. This has a ROPE starter (the kind you wrap a rope around a pulley!), and just to head off the question: NO recoil-start or electric-start upgrade is available on this engine. It’s old-fashioned, but an incredibly tough engine. The PTO has been upgraded to the “combo” flat 3-jaw / splined style with 25mm PTO shaft, and can run any current implement…although some will need adapters. Equipped with “oversize” 6.5x12 Pirelli tires. 5 forward speeds, 2 reverse in tilling mode…has 2 fwd / 2 reverse for front-PTO applications. Other tractor features include locking differential and independent steering brakes. Comes with BCS 30” tiller, on which we have installed seals, bearings, and all new tines. Tractor is also fully serviced by our shop. Not many used diesels come through here - this one will sell quickly, so don’t wait. Available for local pickup, or can be shipped via truck freight (shipping charges extra).

18” Tiller to fit BCS 201 or 205 - $200

This 18” tiller implement fit ONLY BCS model 201 and 205 tractors, which have a PTO coupling system that uses 2 spring-loaded clamps & levers. We put new oil seals in this tiller, and it is ready to go. Tines are less than 40% worn. Available for local pickup, or ships by parcel carrier (shipping charges extra).

44” BCS sickle / cutter bar, single action with oil bath gearbox. New cutting blade & blade coupler, fully serviced by our shop.

We are advertising the following items for consignment sale; please note  we do not offer any warranty on consignment units, since they are not  “ours” (scroll down to see all listings):

Like-New 33” Zanon Heavy Duty Mower $1,300 (NC)

Purchased new from Earth Tools in May 2018. We were looking for a combo brush mower / grass mower, and this mower works amazingly well… but our 739 BCS is too small to handle it well on steep slopes without independent steering brakes (should have gotten the next BCS size up!). This mower has steel gearbox housings and PTO mounting flanges for extra strength. Zanon models also have a “floating” feature in the PTO shaft housing that allows the deck to float independent of the tractor axle, for a better-quality cut on uneven terrain. Blade tips are easily twice the thickness of the BCS blades so you can cut thick grass easily. HARDLY USED!! Comes with debris screen to fit Honda GX 340 or 390 engine. Located in Marshall, NC.

Goldoni Super 600, Tiller, Mower, Furrower, Snowblower $1000 (NC)

1986 Goldoni Super 600, Model 21 Goldoni tiller, rotary mower, hiller/furrower, snowblower (located at Earth Tools shop in KY), buyer picks up. Lovingly used, shed kept, starts on first pull. Turning clutches, 3 forward gears, reverse, and a wheel spin-out feature that allows the user to change the width of the tire spacing.

Forward gears work whether the pto is facing forward or backward (there is a switch on the transmission). Located in Columbia, SC

About the snowblower: Essentially a brand-new (may have been used once or twice) 24” single-stage high-performance snow blower implement to fit Goldoni 600 series walk-behind tractor. This unit may fit on the newer “Jolly” series Goldoni tractors, but we are not sure if the PTO type is exactly the same, since we are not a Goldoni dealer. If you have a Jolly series Goldoni and you want us to find out if it will fit, give us a call at (502) 484-3988. Available for pickup at Earth Tools or ships via truck freight.

Asking $1000 for all. Best purchased as a set, these are rare machines and implements are VERY hard to find.

5x10x20” FOAM-FILLED Adjustable-rim Wheels and Tires to fit BCS or Grillo - WA (no photo)

Price: $300

These are only a couple months old…purchased new from us in April of 2016. The owner wants to upgrade to the next size larger wheel, so he is selling the standard wheels. They have already been filled with solid rubber foam, so they are flat-proof, and have extra weight for extra traction. New set of wheels like this (with foam-filling) is $405. Located in Selah, WA. Available for local pickup, or will ship by UPS. Contact: Joel Hansen @ 509-910-8937 or [email protected]

SEP/Mainline 28” Snow Blower - OH

Price: $375

This 28” snowblower has hardly been used at all. Fits SEP / Mainline “Mountaineer” models –requires clockwise tractor PTO direction (looking at tractor PTO) when tractor is in Front-PTO mode. (This should be the 1500 Mountaineer [rather than the 1300], but as we are not an SEP dealer, I would rather not claim it for sure…any interested parties can just look at their tractor PTO rotation for verification.) At this time, we do NOT have adapters available to adapt this snowblower to any other tractor. Unit is located in Elyria, OH. Contact: Tom Bowen (440) 387-8733 or [email protected]


This fellow has an old Mainline (produced by SEP of Italy) Ladybug machine, and is looking for a machine to buy for a “parts” tractor, being that parts are getting hard to come by on the SEP units. The most important thing would be the actual rototiller implement, as his tractor does not have one (he has a mower only) SO: if someone out there has an old Ladybug (or 2+2, which is about the same) unit with a blown engine, this fellow might take it off your hands. Contact: Ben Hoyt, 603-443-0379
