WARNING: When using a quick hitch on a PTO driven implement, always ensure there is proper overlap prior to use. If there is not the minimum 6″ overlap, do not use. Contact your dealer to purchase a longer driveline.

Reversible hitch for front and rear mounting

Reversible three point hitch for front and rear tractor mounting.

Gearbox by BEFCO

Gearboxes are manufactured by BEFCO and feature a fully enclosed seal housing to protect seals from foreign objects.

Single belt transmission

Heavy duty reinforced belt (BX) with spring loaded tensioner provide over 180° coverage of all pulleys.

Cast iron pulleys

Heavy duty, individually balanced cast iron pulleys are more durable than steel or plastic ones often used by competitors and do not get damaged whenever serviced.

Axial grease fittings

Spindles are quipped with axial grease fittings that allow operator to grease spindle from the top without having to remove the belt shields.

Stamped steel reinforced wheel arms

Only BEFCO mowers are equipped with reinforced stamped steel wheel arms. These wheel arms are stronger than the ones made of bent tubing used by the competition and always guarantee a perfectly even surface for the mower to rest on.

Choice of solid or pneumatic tires

Customers can choose between solid (8.4″x3.2″) or pneumatic tires (9″x3.5″).

Pins that stay in place

Mowers that use traditional cotter pins often loose them when the mower gets too close to a bush. This not only causes the loss of the pin but may also cause the loss of the height adjustment spacers and in some cases even the wheel yokes.
For this reason, BEFCO designed and manufactured a pin that will stay securely fastened under almost any circumstances.
