Bittante, BCS and Rescia Guiliano Single-Stage snow throwers
Don’t be fooled – these snow throwers, with a single stage auger that turns over 1200 RPMs, will outperform almost every two-stage walk-behind snow thrower on the market (with the exception of the Bittante and Berta 2-stage models in our lineup and possibly some of the Gravely walking-tractor-mounted snow throwers). Why can’t other brands do this? Simple: we have all gear drive. The power necessary to maintain this high auger RPM cannot be efficiently maintained through belts, and yet that’s how every ‘competing’ single-purpose walk-behind snow thrower is built. Owners of the BCS single-stage units call them “snow cannons”, and they are not kidding! It’s mighty impressive to watch a blower throw snow 25+ feet!
Heat-treated gears are housed in an oil-bath gearbox and supported by ball bearings. Augers in the Bittante and BCS-brand units are shear-pin protected. and because the “paddles” (which are at the center of the augers to throw the snow out the chute) project a half-inch or so past the augers themselves, this unit has the uncanny ability to crush and spit out almost anything…frozen chunks of snow, ice on top of snow, wet snow. Units have adjustable skid shoes on each side, which can hold the (replaceable on BCS, very thick fixed metal on Bittante) scraper bit on the bottom up off the ground as much as 1.5 inches for gravel driveways. Discharge chutes are made of steel—no cheap plastic here. Chute rotates nearly 180 degrees right-to-left via a handle that extends up to operator position; top of chute has an up/down discharge angle adjustment with a quick screw-knob or pin.
The Rescia Guiliano models have an additional design feature: they utilize a SIDE-DRIVEN auger, which has the added feature of simply NOT being able to clog or jam it with anything that will fit through the chute opening (up to 5”)…simply because there is no gearbox in the center to jam against. The augers on these models are driven at one side by a lubricant-enclosed super-heavy-duty chain drive, and supported at both ends by ball bearings. Without the gearbox in the center slightly impeding the flow of snow, the Recsia models will also handle slightly more volume that the comparable BCS. And—best yet: Both Bittante and Rescia offer a model to fit a BCS in a 32” width, so folks with the larger 800 series BCS tractors no longer have to settle for a 28” snowblower, they can get something better matched to the HP and weight of their larger walk-behind tractor! When comparing Rescia to Bittante, BCS or Berta, the Rescia units although work and function very well, they do have a more "crude" paint job compared to the other 3 manufacturers. The Rescia is well painted, but there are sometimes visible drip marks in the paint. Not so on Bittante, BCS or Berta as they have a much more "polished" look.
Two-stage snow throwers - For high volume snow removal
While the all-gear-driven, single-stage Snow Thrower is great for most snow events, the Two-Stage Snow thrower is specifically designed to tackle “the Monster” snowfalls. It will blow away drifted snow that is feet deep with ease and discharge that snow distances are up to 45 feet!
Available in 24", 28”, 32" or 33” widths, these units feature a thick steel plate blower housing and cast-iron gearbox – both designed for hard use and long life.
Other features include a 23” intake height, 15” diameter auger, and adjustable skids that provide height settings ranging from 0” – 2”.
Shear bolts are positioned to protect both the primary augers, as well as the secondary impeller.
Like the single-stage attachment, the discharge chute can be rotated horizontally up to 200 degrees. The directional control rod extends and is fastened to the tractor's right handlebar for operator comfort.
We sell 2 brands in the Two-stage model class. Bittante and Berta. Both made in Italy. See below for pricing. NOTE: Berta brand snow thrower comes with adjustable skids AND rollers. See pics below for further info.
