Overview

Description

Built to the same standards as the BCS model 740, the PowerSafe 749 utilizes three forward and three reverse working speeds and Differential Drive with Lockout for increased maneuverability. The third working speed gives increased production efficiency, especially in mowing applications. As with all PowerSafe models, the 749 does not have a transport speed.



Unlike the 739, the 749 comes with individual wheel brakes for increased maneuverability.



The 749 is equipped with a Honda GX390 in recoil or electric start, and for a limited time, also has a Kohler diesel option. Ask your local BCS dealer for diesel availability.



The 749’s PowerSafe clutch differs from standard models by utilizing a hydro-mechanical, “wet” clutch instead of the spring-loaded, double-cone clutch. This clutch is more difficult to overheat because it’s in an oil bath and cooled by circulated oil instead of air, as on the standard clutch. It’s also better suited for implements requiring higher torque, such as the flail mower or chipper/shredder. The PowerSafe clutch is longer-lasting, backed by a five-year warranty for non-commercial homeowners. It also gives operators smoother shifting, safer operation, and immediate stoppage when the clutch lever is released.
