The BCS 738 Rotavator is manufactured by BCS S.p.A. and is ideal if you're looking for a large, powerful rotavator that's also capable of undertaking a range of other tasks. It's perfect for professional users as well as allotment owners and smallholders, and has a 66cm wide rotavating width, three working speeds, and a choice of a petrol or diesel engine. It also has the ability to operate attachments including flail and mulching mowers, ploughs, ridger and potato lifter amongst others.
The machine uses two drives; one controls the wheels to move the machine forwards and the other controls the digging tines. Because both drives are functioning simultaneously the machine is effectively doing all the work.
The rotavator will keep digging for as long as it is in contact with the ground and in good conditions, and after a few passes, it can dig down to a depth of up to 8" (20cm).
The digging depth is easily controlled via the control lever which is located on top of the digging box. To increase the digging depth simply move the lever up or for shallow digging move it all the way in.
The BCS 738 Rotavator is perfectly balanced with a choice of petrol or diesel engine and a 26" (66cm) wide rotavator box. With three forward and reverse speeds for faster operation (particularly when using the grass cutting attachments) and large wheels with a locking differential for fantastic manoeuvrability and on-the-spot turning, this rotavator offers simplicity, reliability and outstanding performance.
