The BCS Reaper Binder is ideal for growers wanting to take control of their harvesting and reduce harvesting time. It will cut, bundle, and tie crops in a single pass. Suitable for crops whose height does not exceed 70-80 cm, including grains, sesame, lavender, herbs, and more, this harvester is directly descended from the very first BCS machines that were originally built over 80 years ago!
The 140cm wide cutter bar cuts material 7cm from the ground. The continuous and constant movement of the forks positioned above the cutter bar then allows the cut crop to be bundled towards the binding mechanism which ties the cut material approximately either 19cm or 28cm above the cut (dependent on the model).
BCS was originally founded in Italy in 1943 by Luigi Castoldi in a tiny workshop in Abbiategrasso. 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.
