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 with spiral gears

Gearboxes are manufactured by BEFCO and come equipped with spiral gears that ensure better power transmission, increase longevity and reduce noise.

Manual belt tensionning

Manual belt tensionner maintains constant tension on belts without stretching them like a typical spring loaded idler would. This means that belts last much longer and there is no spring loaded idler that needs to be disassembled at the end of the mowing season to prevent it from stretching the belts during the winter months.

Double belt transmission

Two heavy duty reinforced belts (SPBX) with manual tensionner provide over 180° coverage of all pulleys and reduce belt maintenance.

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 (10″x3.2″) or pneumatic tires (11″x4″).

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.

Chain shielding

Mowers are equipped with chain shields to provide additional safety from thrown objects.
