BCS Buddy Cart Overview

The Buddy Cart makes the back-breaking chore of hauling firewood, compost, or rocks by pushing a traditional wheelbarrow a thing of the past!

BCS Buddy Cart Features

The BCS Buddy Cart attaches to BCS tractor models 722 and up. You simply attach it to the PTO connection point. This barrow is compact in size. It was intentionally designed to easily fit through any common 36” inch fence gate. Actual measurements are 33.5” wide, 72” long (including tongue) and 27” high. You will appreciate the fact that while the payload allows for carrying up to 450 pounds or 10 feet of volume, it won’t take up much storage space.

The Buddy Cart is practically weather-proof, so forget about problems with rusting. The tub is made of rustproof poly and the tongue is powder paint-coated. Special attention was given to making the Buddy Cart flexible enough to navigate even the most uneven terrain. For instance, the frame of the cart has a low center of gravity. This is an important design feature, making it less prone to tipping on hillsides or uneven ground.

BCS knows any barrow has to both steer and dump with ease while carrying a heavy load. The specially engineered tongue of the Buddy Cart ensures both maneuverability and dumping is a breeze. Steering is feather-light because the pivot point is located on the tongue near the PTO connection point. The pivot point even allows for the hitch to be repositioned to allow for larger wheel sizes if desired.

When it comes to dumping, we’ve made it easy. A dump lever located on the tongue activates the cart to tilt, dumping the load effortlessly. In fact, attaching a rope through a hole in the lever lets the operator activate the dump from a standing position.

The Buddy Cart is designed with flexibility in mind.  We know you will enjoy using your Buddy Cart frequently as you collect yard debris, tote mulch, or haul just about anything else you might need to enhance your outdoor space. We made the cart attachable to the tractor in either “rear-mount” position or “front-mount” position. Switching from one mount to the other is achieved by simply rotating the BCS handlebars and offsetting the handlebars to the left or right. Most owners seem to prefer placing the handlebars in “rear-mount” mode since that facilitates reaching the cart without having to walk around the front of the tractor.

You will find the Buddy Cart extremely versatile and fun to use. Chores that previously were hard work will become a cinch when you use your “buddy.”
