I decided to make a new thread for more pictures of the E20, now off the trailer at it's temporary residence (dad's place).
It is in great shape and I have tried the existing on board charger, it works. I posted some pics of the accessories in that section. Here are some general pics.

There is a cool handle on the front of the deck. Just unplug the power cord from the tractor, lift the handle, and adjust or clean the deck.

Here is a view of the dash. The cruise control is too cool.

I couldn't resist making one of these two as an avitar pic.

Here is it's temporary home. There is an electrical outlet right next to it. Note the accessory tools hanging next to it as well. I plan to use it as is, making as few alterations as possible. It is by far my best GT deal to date.

That deck flip system is AWESOME! I've never seen such an easy access deck as that! Talk about EASY servicing of blades & cleaning!

Seeing that this is sooo rare do you think you should be using it.It's one of these things that should be taken to shows etc: and shown off.Maybe the more people see something like this they'll want one and maybe someone will start building them again.Wouldn't that be nice.Very nice looking machine and attachments.Take care of that machine,its in very nice shape.Larry

Nice iron.
Don't think I would restore just yet.
Lots of decals to lose.

Just curious, but see the center deck motor is at a different angle than the outside motors. How does it mow even??

I never noticed that. But it does a great job mowing. I will have to look into that. I should have taken a pic of the mowed lawn after. Thanks for showing me that.
I was very pleased with the way it mowed.

Dan, I could be wrong but I think what you are seeing is commonly known as an "optical delusion".


I just bought an E-20 but it is still sitting in AZ so I haven't got it here to look at it on a first-hand basis. But I have been putting together all the printed matter available pertaining to these machines. The decks appear to be perfectly flat in the area where the 3 motors mount. There are two motors shown but it seems that the motor diameter is what separates the two motor models. The parts book does not show the two outer motors being different than the center motor. Therefore, I am unable to find anything in the parts manual that would support what MY eyes also see in those photos submitted by DTDave.

One little tidbit of info that I discovered, that might also interest you is this. It appears that each motor has a friction clutch between itself and the blade. The reasons are obvious so I won't bother stating them.

I looked at the motors last week. I was at camp with no internet. The blades are all in line, but the motors do look like one is not straight. But close inspection doesn't show any bumps or dings. Good eyes Daniel.
