I thought you might enjoy this picture of me and my 739--with the BCS loaded up in the back of my Toyota Prius--had to get a small repair done. With the Prius spare wheel removed, the wheels fit nicely into the recessed trunk, the handlebars fold down, and voila...off we go! Impressive portability.
I purchased the BCS 739 with sickle bar, chipper/shredder, and tiller for homesteading use on a 42 acre mini-farm in the mountains of western Virginia, and it has been perfect for our needs.
This picture is a great highlight to the differences. The 7ft boxblade and loader bucket are great for grading and dirt road maintenance, heavy weight jobs with forks and backhoe, but the BCS is great for delicate garden work in soft ground, or one row at a time, or shredding blackberries and shrubs with the Flail in very wet soggy ground, and building rows and tilling mid season without compaction or disturbing the next row.
