BCS/Mainline Rototiller for sale: as is. early 1970’s BCS/Mainline tiller model 715 needs new home. I have no garden to use it in. The transmission is essentially new, the tires are perfect but the engine needs work or replacement. A new bolt-on electric start Kohler would run about $600 from Earth Tools. With that this tiller would be good for years to come and even better than it originally was. Nothing beats a gear-driven BCS. It is a powerhouse but not large; easy for a small person to operate. $300 for this tiller in its current condition because of the new transmission/drivetrain. Please text or call for more information or to see it. 360-317-6795 posted 07/01
