Key features

  • Keep up the pace because the BC1000XL comes with a 25-gallon/94.6 L fuel tank that lets you put in more hours before refueling.
  • Minimize maintenance because once the shield is opened, belts can be changed without tools, and the clutchless PTO system eliminates the need to slide the engine.
  • Provides operator safety with the patented bottom feed stop bar. The four-position upper feed control bar with dual stop positions and forward / reverse feed positions mounts over the feed table and enables the operator to stop the feed rollers and select forward or reverse operations.
