    Default Common uses for BCS

    I know most use their BCS's for tilling and other garden work, snowblowing or pushing this time of year, and mowing. I use mine for all that but it seems that most of the time mine is hooked up to the barrow. Winter is moving wood,(the woodstove eats about one load per day, more when it is really cold) spring and summer it is the mulchmobile (which helps with other implement purchases). For those that use them, what are the advantages/disadvantages of trailers vs powerbarrow? My tractor is a 725, so no diff and no steering brakes. Sometimes I would like more capacity, but we do have some steep hills.

    I think what you have will work better, a tow-able trailer can haul more but requires more to pull it, especially up hill. With your power barrow, weight is transferred back to the drive wheels of the BCS. Although steering brakes would make it easier to use.
