I just bought a older BCS tractor and tiller model 725. How do I go from High range to Low? I got this from the estate owners daughter.

Thanks for the help

Sometimes the detents become stiff. Some oil and working them back and forth often will make a difference.

Thanks just starting to find my way around this site. got Tractor at a friends garage as no heat in mine just dropped gearcase oil and toped up tiller gear case. Tractor has not ran since 2016 when owner passed away. tractor was repowered with a Honda GX 270 May 18 2013.

Sometimes the gears don't lie up just right and makes them hard to go from Hi to LO. Have to move it a bi in gear. Same vintage as mine but I put a Briggs 9hp on mine. Have the tiller, 42" bar mower and a blade for it. You may want to make a ring out of #9 wire to hold the clutch lever dis engaged. Put the ring around the hand grip and the lever. Clutch has a tendancy to stick when parked for extended periods.

Sorry to bother everyone. I am trying to figure out the age of my BCS with my limited skills I guess it is before 1995, there is no serial # that I could find. any one else have a idea. the original engine was a Acne.

Thanks Hank

Doug E thanks, do you know where there is a parts source for these older tractors. I may be looking at a throttle cable if I keep this BCS. I guess there are not many around of the older machines.

Earthtools.com is your source.

There are lots of machines older than yours still in service!

There is a full reapir and parts CD available through the BCS dealers. Some may not want to sell you one though, mine did for around $20 I think it was. I need to get another set of tines for my tiller. Have the second set on and they are getting rather narrow. Also have the snow thrower for mine. It is rather cumbersome to manuver though other than on a long stretch of drive or sidewalk.
