The BCS Model 853 is our best-selling walk behind tractor model. It combines a third working speed with a fourth transport speed for greater versatility. With this model, you can power nearly all of the BCS implements and use the higher transport speed to get around quickly when using transport attachments like the utility trailer. The BCS 853 also features individual left and right wheel brakes to increase maneuverability. This is especially helpful when making frequent turns.
Overview of 853 features:
- Differential drive with lockout
- Individual wheel brakes for turning and parking
- Easy-to-engage, shuttle-type reverse
- Anti-vibration handlebars that instantly adjust both vertically and side-to-side
- Third working speed and fourth transport speed
Comparison Between Models 852 and 853
BCS Models 852 and 853 are very similar. The difference is which mode the transport speed can be used in.
For the 852, the transport speed can only be applied when you operate the tractor in front-mount (mower) mode. On the 853, the transport speed is only available in rear-mount (tiller) mode. Note that the 852 and 853 are the only models which offer both a transport speed and a third working speed.
