In Need Of Help
Posted March 09, 2012 - 07:35 PM
I have a guy that is in the process of selling me a Elec-Trac E15. It is the tractor, the front deck, the front blade, the rear grass/bagger blower, and a pull behind trailer, and the snowblower.
The problem that we are having is the price or value of the unit.
What price do you guys think is fair for it. He says he is selling the complete set up and all attachments as one unit.

Does it have operating batteries?
If yes and everything is in working order a fair price in my area would be 1,000 t o 1,500. Without working batteries to test things, I would go no more than 700 myself. Six six volt batteries will be close to if not 7 to 800 alone. It originally took 6 six volt batteries to make 36volts.
If you go look at it, try to bring three charged 12v car or deep cycles to test it. Make sure every attachment works. If something does not work, you have to be good with wiring and electrical work.
Sparky, Doug and Casey will surely post something here too.
Keep us posted and good luck.

I can't make out the serial-model #s, if you can get them I think I can tell you when it was made right to the day.
The grass bagger/blower is rare, you hardly ever see them. I would keep the tractor mower and bagger with the trailer all together for sure, makes a nice package. Are there any names or #s on the trailer?
The snow blower and dozer blade could be separated from the rest, the dozer blade was the most popular attachment.
As to what it's all worth??? I don't know.
New or good working battery pack adds a lot to the value and the less rusty the battery boxes are the better.
Someone else might be able to put a $ value on it better than me.
Edit after doing some digging I can tell you the tractor was made on the 20th day of ???month in 1970.
On the serial# tag, the first letter in the bottom # is the month.
