Doug, you did a really great job with it. Almost inspires me to try it. The one thing I have been thinking about too is what about the idea of building an electric pulling tractor?

Doug,
That's really nice. Thanks for the pics & video, it's sure a lot quieter than the gas version.

I watched that a couple of times trying to get a feel for max MPH's on that, looks like it'll scoot right along.

It was in 4th gear it is quiet, no wine from the controller, might be quieter when I fill the trany up with oil, discovered today that I forgot to do that after I fixed it, oops.

Doug the controller seems to do a really good job. It will be great seeing it under a load once you get the whole thing back together and take it for a test drive.

Congrats Doug on a very nice job! Glad your test turned out well. One thing with no oil in the tranny you will not have any leaks!!

Well it's really coming together the last few days, today finished up the wiring, got the foot-boards, dash, grill, hood, front axle all on, mounted my new rear tires that I had from before, with new tubes on the rims, plan on loading them. Put some oil in the trany last night and I got no leaks.
One things for sure

REDS going GREEN

What is the minimum temperature needed to apply Decals successfully?

Working on the tractor again today, all that's left to do is the toolbox, seat, front wheels and decals. It's going to warm up this weekend here so I want to test drive a finished tractor.
