    The origin of the word "tractor"

    Hi :) Most dictionaries and many tractor books will state that the word "tractor" originates from Latin trahere, but I have not been able to find any books yet, that explains how to get from the verb trahere to the noun tractor. Being a curious person with an interest in languages as well as in...

    Gasoline versus diesel

    Hi :) Anyone who consider purchasing a new standard 4-wheel farm tractor, might have a lot of different brands and models to choose from, but when it comes to which type of engine/fuel to choose, the choice is very simple, as all new farm tractors run on diesel fuel. To my knowledge, the last...

    DAKR Panter FD-3

    Hi 😉 Since last summer, a professional gardener has helped me mow my 1.5 acre meadow, as I have no suitable mower attachment for my BCS 740, for that kind of mowing myself. The gardener used a DAKR Panter FD-3 with a 2-disc drum mower, produced in the Check Republic. Having read the thread on...

    Honda GX-series engines for use on steep slopes

    Hi :) Most engines - also on 2-wheel tractors - are limited to operate within certain slope limits, mostly due to the risk of inadequate lubrication of vital engine parts. With some implements like mowers, power barrows or trailers, these limits might be exceeded depending on the actual...

    Twin-engined 2-wheel tractor

    Hi :) Except for exotic one-offs, twin-engined commercially produced 4-wheel tractors are rare. As high-power tractors are available from most of the well-known manufacturers today, there is probably no need for them now. In the 1950s and 1960s, things were different, and this led companies...

    The largest 2-wheeled tractor in the world?

    Hi :) The fact that The Guinness Book of Records is one of the best-selling books in the world indicates that a lot of us have an interest in world records. Most tractor enthusiasts are probably familiar with the largest agricultural tractor in the world, the one-off Big Bud 16V-747, build in...

    "Plastic snow chains"

    Hi :) I have had a lot of fun with my BCS 740 with the 40" sweeper the last 4 month, but now "sadly" winter is coming to an end. The sweeper has handled snow up to 6" of depth with ease, and I can now clean my 1700 sq ft driveway in 15-20 minutes, instead of 4 hours by hand! I have been...

    BCS identification label

    Dear fellow BCS Friends :) As I got my BCS 740 with a sweeper last summer, I found it pretty easy to understand the information on the identification labels attached - except the production year (Year ld.). As you can see on the first 2 attached thumbnails, the label on the 740 reads "0777"...
