The BCS 618 is simple to manoeuvre and straightforward to operate, even in confined areas. The driven wheels and powerful cutting teeth mean that user input is kept to a minimum; you let the scythe do the work for you.
A locking differential makes the 618 extremely manoeuvrable and capable of being used with many useful implements.
The 618 has the option of a Honda GP160 or a Honda GX270 engine, with each machine able to operate a choice of scythe cutter bars. The GX270 option enables the power unit to be able to operate a variety of other implements too including the double reciprocating (duplex) scythe cutter bar.
BCS was originally founded in Italy in 1943 by Luigi Castoldi in a tiny workshop in Abbiategrasso. Castoldi designed and manufactured a self-propelled mowing machine with a low power internal combustion engine which was a revolutionary invention in the agricultural world. Today the BCS Group has three production plants in Italy, all ISO 9001 certified, and has a presence in every continent with sales offices and distributors around the world.
