Tractor sits on it's own wheels now, just painted the last piece, toolbox, everything else done even got the decals on. Looks like test drive and pictures tomorrow.

Finished pictures and I took it for a test drive today.

Electric Massey 026.jpg



The first picture is what I started with, the 2nd was my inspiration for the way I painted it.

IMG_0822.jpg


I took video but it's too dark to see anything but it does work, it goes as fast in 3rd gear as the gas version does in 4th. Have a bad connection in the throttle circuit, controller has an led on it that gives fault codes if something not right, when I wiggle the connector for the throttle the problem shows up, most likely one of the terminals I put on is n/g. Aside from that it works. Will post video when I can get one done in the daylight. How much power this has, pulling power and how much range before the battery's are discharged??? Time will tell, one things for sure.

RED has gone GREEN

Doug, looks great. Really a nice job. Can't wait to see the good video. I like the color scheme alot. Nice decals too. It wasn't a bad looking Massey at the start. It's a great looking electric tractor now.

I'm sure it has already been discussed ,but never the less,how long do you figure it will run on a full battery charge ?
