A Brilliant Engineer | 1942 Luigi Castoldi

Luigi Castoldi was working out of a small workshop in Abbiategrasso, a town on the outskirts of Milan, Italy. Castoldi, a brilliant engineer, developed a self-propelled sickle bar mower that helped revolutionize agriculture by increasing productivity and dramatically reducing the physical effort needed to harvest hay and other forage crops. His self-propelled mowing machine, which he dubbed Model 243, was among the first mowing machines in the world to be equipped with an internal combustion engine with low power.

BCS America | 1970 From Across the Pond

BCS products came to America in the early 1970’s at a time when Americans were re-discovering the joys of vegetable gardening and pursuing self-sufficiency. The walk-behind tractor with tiller attachment was an instant success due to its superiority to the rear-tine tillers produced by US manufacturers of homeowner-quality lawn and garden equipment. In addition to gardening, rural property owners soon found that the front-mount cutter bar attachment was ideal for mowing pond banks, under fences, around semi-dwarf fruit trees, etc. Commercial farmers, nurseries, public and private institutions then began using BCS tractors and attachments for all those applications for which four-wheel tractors are poorly suited – mowing steep roadside banks, sweeping snow from pedestrian walkways, intensive cultivation and so on.
