A larger engine with a greater choice of cutting widths & attachments.

The BCS 615SL gives you the flexibility of Honda's larger GX270 engine, allowing it to power different equipment as well as providing obvious performance benefits.

Excellent performance from the Honda GX270

Standard with this machine is the 8.4 hp Honda GX270 engine, benefiting from high power and Honda's trademark reliability. This gives you the power to work on areas up to five acres, as well as additional choices when it comes to attachments (this unit can be fitted with a double reciprocating duplex cutter bar, for example).

Get just the right cutter bar for your needs

With a choice between 100 cm (40 inch), 115 cm (45 inch) and 135 cm (53 inch) cutter bars, you can get exactly the right cutting width for the area you will be working on, whether that's a wide open space or one with lots of obstacles to work around. The bar has heavy duty serrated teeth that give excellent durability and can cut through woody material up to 1 inch thick, even including first year saplings.

The cut height is easily adjustable between 2 and 8 cm as required. You can choose from a short or long oil bath drive movement on the 115 cm and 135 cm bars.

A versatile machine as well as an excellent scythe mower

Thanks to the Honda engine and strong PTO gears, this model can also have a wide range of additional implements fitted as well as the scythe cutter bar. A duplex (double reciprocating) version can be used, for example, as well as the likes of a chipper shredder, a disc mower, power brush and rotary mower. The handles are adjustable to suit the task at hand, but do not rotate 180 degrees so cannot operate ground cultivation attachments.

Comes with a 3 year conditional domestic warranty and a 2 year commercial one.
