That mini round baler is pretty cool. I have never seen one that small!

Those are amazing machines, but they are also amazingly expensive. The BCS 835 itself is somewhere in the $3K-$4k range, and it think that baler is about $10k. Aside from the dollars involved, it is really neat that these kinds of machines are available.

Would be good for someone with a small farmette. If you are handy or find some nice older equipment I think I would rather go that route mainly based off of financial reasoning. Although if you don't have room to store a farm sized tractor this would be a good option.

I have always liked the BCS products and attachments. Just couldn't afford them.

They are NOT cheap!!! Before we got the Gravely, I was looking for a 2 wheeler to cut those areas I wasn't comfortable taking the tractor through (we have some really steep areas). Someone told me about BCS's, and they looked really great. But I wasn't willing to part with that much money. Got the Gravely cheap and used (my kind of price!!!). I see used BCS on Ebay and Craigslist from time to time, but even used, they command a good price!

Their tiller attachment is supposed to be one of the best tillers out there....

The man running the baler is Joel Dufour the owner of earthtools. When I bought my Grillo in May He came out after it was assembled checked EVERYTHING made a few more adjustments . Made sure I understood how everthing works and loaded it on the truck for us It wasn't leaving his shop till he made sure it was right, that is the customer service you get from earthtoolsbcs

I would imagine they are cheaper in Europe, and they would be good for a cooperative of farmers.

I would imagine for someone actually making money for a small farm this may be the way to go, but wow, for someone like me with a small garden and a habbit of buying old iron I couldn't bring myself to spend that kind of money. They are really cool though. Maybe in thirty years they will be on ebay cheap.
