BCS tracmaster / Allen scythe

Random ask- anyone with experience of BCS tracmaster two wheel scythe? I’m looking at one for work here on some steep banks - too steep for quad and flail to operate.

Thanks

That looks like too much hard work on a slope. I have a couple of Grillo's which are a bit pricey but will handle most slopes and cut through serious brush.

Give your local shop a call and ask for some machines to demo. WARNING.

BCS machine works well Thumbs Up

Grillo machines also very good Thumbs Up

Don’t know the ground you are on but have you tried or seen the Grillo Climber or the AS Motor range Ride on brush cutters. AS do a flail version now too......remote control option is a great bonus too.
There are also other options such as Spider and Agria slope mowers.
Have had a lot of experience in all of the above, so any more questions just ask. Thumbs Up

Thanks Romadog, much appreciated. I hired a McConnell Roboflail a year or so back, but really it was too heavy to work on the slopes here, hence looking at the two wheeled tractors. As much as I’d like a sit in / on flail I think I’ll be doing a lot more walking!
