Features & Benefits

25-gal (94.6-L) fuel tank

Keep up the pace because the BC1000XL comes with a 25-gal (94.6-L) fuel tank that lets you put in more hours before refueling.

Minimized maintenance

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.

Patented bottom feed stop bar

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.
