** SICKLE BAR MUST GO WITH OIL TRANSMISSION **

This is the weapon of choice for recapturing large areas that are overgrown with tall weeds, brush, and saplings.

Because it cuts everything only once at its base, the height of what you’re cutting does not influence ground speed. Consequently, you can reliably plan on mowing an acre of vegetation, whether it’s six inches or six feet high, in 2-3 hours, depending on the length of the bar. Also, because there’s no deck, you can mow when there’s a dew or light rain.

Another feature of the sickle bar is that it has a low profile and sticks out well beyond the stance of the tractor tires. This makes it ideal for mowing under the bottom strand or rail of your fence, under the bottom limbs of Christmas trees, along ponds, across steep banks, etc. This is a wonderful tool that accomplishes in minutes the equivalent of hours of arduous work with a straight-shafted trimmer.

Remember that the sickle bar does not grind up the vegetation into smaller particles that would give you a lawn-like appearance. If you want your mown area to look like lawn, please see our rotary brush mowers.

Description

The Sickle (cutter) Bar Mower is original to the BCS brand, and it's also one of the most popular attachments. Ideal for many different tasks, the Sickle Bar is designed to slice material at its base to leave the cut material in tact. This means there's no flying debris, thrown stones or excessive mulch.



The height-adjustable sickle bar is much wider than the wheelbase, so you can easily trim along slopes, ponds, under fences, and other low-clearance places you wouldn't dare take a traditional mower. They can also be used for forage harvesting, most notably hay.



Plus, Sickle Bar Mowers save time and are extremely efficient—they consume less fuel than other mowers, require very little power, and can be operated by smaller engines, including the BCS model 710! These machines are ideal for commercial operations that value cost-effective performance.



Every Sickle Bar Mower has an optional oil bath transmission, which offers smoother operation, longer life, and increased weight for climbing steep slopes.



The Duplex Sickle Mower is also available for double action—simultaneous separate blade assemblies that move in equal and opposite directions for lesser vibration and better performance.



PLEASE NOTE: All prices include the required dry (greasable) transmissions *Limited Supply Available*. An optional Oil Bath Transmission upgrade is available for $225.
