I wanted to post some photos of my E20. I really love this machine. It is still on the trailer, so the pics aren't that great. The front mount mower is really cool, as is the whole thing.

The coolest feature are the hand tools GE made specifically for the tractor line. I never knew about these until I got the tractor and the hedge trimmer and chain saw were included.

I have included photos under the hood especially for massey driver. Under the hood, there are two batteries and the onboard charger. Under the seat are the other four batteries. A really cool tractor. This one appears to have been well cared for.

I am getting alot of information for it off the elec trak owners site.

I'm hoping to track down some more of the hand tools and other accessories.

Man I'd love to see one first hand, I here they had a lot of different attachments for them including a welder.
It's to bad these didn't become really popular, I think they were just a bit too much $ for that to happen
There is another co. called "Modern Electric Tractors" at least I think that's the name, they are making improved copy's of the original GE tractors that will accept all the original attachments. Don't know how there doing or if there even still around.
From what I've being able to find out on the web 99% of the Elec Trak's are in the US so for me to find one in Canada is a needle in a hay stack.

Doug, I was supplying Jerry (one of the partners) with decals for the "Modern Electric Tractor". He had put in an order, then notified me not to make them. Seems the partners were in disagreement on some things, and they may not be in business any longer as I understand it. I think Jerry is trying to acquire the whole thing & fire the company back up.

This day and age with everybody wanting to go green I think it would take off.
Just think if GE was still making the originals (improved versions with more modern electronic controllers) I think they would do well, if the price was competitive.

Hi:

Have an Elec Trak also. Have been watching the hand tools on ebay. The chainsaw will bring several hundred or more. A very rare and popular item.

daytime dave....
Any chance you have paper with that tractor? I'm looking to find out the overall length, width and height of the basic tractor with no attachments as well as the actual operating weight, meaning...batteries included. Am also wondering about the weight and dimensions of the standard mowing deck.

Got anything?

I accessed the manuals at the elec trak site. They have three pages of different manuals there. The only answer to your question is the general operator's manual listed the tractor weight of the e20 at 895 lbs, the 15 at 850 lbs and the e 12 at 795 lbs.
I will measure the dimensions for you next time I go to dad's place. I keep it there for now.

OK good. Much appreciated. I'm thinking that I can shed 350 pounds off that weight by having the old, dead batteries removed prior to shipping. Have you tried pushing your's around? I assume that there is a neutral in the gearbox that would allow pushing or towing.
