Sickle Bar Mower (See below for pricing and video)


The Sickle (cutter) Bar Mower is original to the BCS brand, and it's also one of the most popular attachments. Ideal for many different tasks, the Sickle Bar is designed to slice material at its base to leave the cut material in tact. This means there's no flying debris, thrown stones or excessive mulch.

The height-adjustable sickle bar is much wider than the wheelbase, so you can easily trim along slopes, ponds, under fences, and other low-clearance places you wouldn't dare take a traditional mower. They can also be used for forage harvesting, most notably hay.

Plus, Sickle Bar Mowers save time and are extremely efficient—they consume less fuel than other mowers, require very little power, and can be operated by smaller engines, including the BCS model 710! These machines are ideal for commercial operations that value cost-effective performance.

Every Sickle Bar Mower has an oil bath transmission, which offers smoother operation, longer life, and increased weight for climbing steep slopes.  Each unit also comes with adjustable skids to increase the mowing height up to 3'' off the ground. 

Single Action Sickle bar cutter features:

  • Bar widths range from 30" to 53".
  • Cut saplings up to 1.5'' thick.
  • Swivel joint in input shaft allows bar to follow ground contours.
  • Oil bath transmission for smooth operation and longer life.
  • Each unit includes a complete replacement knife assembly.
  • Ideal for commercial operations.
  • Adjustable skids included and adjust to 3'' cutting height.
  • Optional "riser kit" allows cut height from 4" to 7"
  • Optional "grease" type transmission for those NOT needing the heavier duty oil bath transmission


NOTE:Single action sickle bar cutters should be run at 1/3 throttle or less !!! They do not need much power to do their job. Running the sickle bar cutter over 1/3 throttle, will result in premature fatigue/wear of the sickle bar components, it will consume more fuel AND cause extra vibration that will be transferred back to the operators body. If you need to mow faster, see the link below for Dual/Double Action Sickle bar cutter. You can run these up to 1/2 throttle with nearly ZERO vibration.

The Dual/Double Action Sickle bar cutter is also available for double action—simultaneous separate blade assemblies that move in equal and opposite directions for lesser vibration, faster cutting speed and better performance.
