I was going to post this in the electric tractors section, but I decided these were also attachments.
When I got my General Electric Elec Trak E20, it came with a snowblower, front mounted mower, hedge trimmer and chain saw. Yes, machine dedicated hedge trimmer and chain saw

These were specifically made to go with the elec trak tractor line.

First, I tried the hedge trimmer. It looks like a drill handle, because it is. There was a separate drill head and separate grass shears that could go on the drill handle. As I was at Dad's place and there are no hedges. Plenty of weeds near the indian corn, so I trimmed up a few.

After, I found the weight box a very handy place to put the trimmer.

The chain saw is next. It has a very heavy cord. There is some type of junction box that I have no idea about. Of course I had to look inside.

With some sumacs nearby, I tried it out on some small ones.

I will interject a word of caution. It is a corded chain saw that can only go so far from the tractor. Be sure you know how to fell a tree, or you could drop it on your GT.
(It took me a minute or two to position the tractor so I could get a semi dramatic shot with no risk at all)

Somewhere's near 40 years old, and still a strong saw. The oiler obviously still works.

These are the coolest features about the elec trak as far as I am concerned. They made several other cool and useful attachments for the line. Only a company like GE used to be could do something like this. Everything 36 volts and plugging into the tractor.

I will enjoy looking for the other attachments as time goes by.

I am currently looking into the sleeve hitch and rear lifter to use all our sleeve hitch items at the farm.

According to the brochure I read, the sleeve hitch was standard on the 20 but not on the others.

I think the chain saw and trimmer are the trickest part of the Electrak package you have! There are Massey Ferguson chain saws, but not dedicated to the tractors.

The chain saw is next. It has a very heavy cord. There is some type of junction box that I have no idea about. Of course I had to look inside.


That junction box is a relay or solenoid, small current goes through the switch on the saw turns on the solenoid to supply large current for the saw's motor, like a cars starter circuit.

Man you hit the jack pot with this deal, the age and condition of all the stuff you got, amazing.

Well, I don't know who actually built them & badged as Massey Ferguson, but they made a few sizes. Here's the only pic I could find quick. They show up on ebay now & then.

the last MF chainsaw the i came across was on ebay, i gracefully quit bidding at $150 as i already have (2) stihl chainsaws and the MF would have just been another MF item in the collection.

Definitely! I admittedly know little to nothing about the ElecTrak machines, and find this very cool. The offering of "plug in" attachments is great! I'd imagine they must be few and far between, which makes your setup even better :thumbs:
