Grillo G131 (see below for video and pricing)

Our largest and heaviest duty tractor, specifically designed for heavy duty use with demanding soil-working implements…transmission and clutch on this machine are about 30% heavier-duty than on the largest model BCS imports into North America. The heavy-duty handlebars and robust transmission design make this our best tractor to run the reciprocating spader implement, and it is good for any commercial application where mainly rear-PTO (soil-working) implements are used. Negatives on this model are: slightly harder maneuvering due to more weight and bulk; Limited speeds for mowing/front-PTO implements; NO quick-coupling system available for changing implements on this model; and when converting this tractor to front-PTO mode, gearshift levers must be changed (On this model, figure 10 minutes to change between Rear-PTO and Front-PTO modes…all our other models convert in a minute or two) Another potential down-side for mowing applications is that the steering-brake controls are located at the top of the handlebar column, rather than at the hand-grips like other tractor models. One unique feature is that the G131 also has a Synchronized PTO option available to operate a “driven-wheel trailer”, which turns this machine into a 4-wheel drive “truck” with a dump bed, capable of hauling 2000 pounds.

(Closest comparable BCS model is 750 [formerly 948], but 750 has lighter transmission)
