BCS America - Rear-Tine Tiller
With BCS tillers, you don’t just dig your dirt, you build your soil. Bust sod, prepare seedbeds, precision cultivate and, when gardening season is over, power compost spent plant material or between-season cover crops directly back into your soil for organically richer soil in the spring. Most importantly, BCS accomplishes this effortlessly. Like any good tool, your “job” is to simply keep it company. Because of its chopping action, the forward-rotating tines are not prone to getting tangled with plant material. With large wheels in control and proper balance, the tiller avoids “tine walking” and requires little or no downward pressure on the handles. Its compact design makes it easy to turn at the end of the row.
Simply put, BCS tillers are of professional quality, to be enjoyed by home and commercial gardeners alike. All BCS tractors, with the exception of the model 712, have a second, dedicated speed for cultivating between your plants. In this gear, the tines turn 10 times per revolution of the wheel, eliminating weeds and creating a dirt mulch without over-pulverizing your soil.
