Congrats on your latest score Doug. Yes, it looks a bit rusty, but alot of that, will buff right off.


I think you could measure in kilograms, (pounds) how much rust has, will fall of this thing.

Doug, congratulations. Too bad about all the rust. I hope you got a good deal on a nice parts tractor. The side discharge and mounting bracket are good scores. They look very intact. I didn't take any notice of the seat at first. That's really cool, I've never seen one. Thanks for posting those great photographs.

Today was warm spring like day in the winter and I spent some time stripping the snow blower that came with this deal.

the auger is rusted right out, not fixable.

The main part that I wanted from this was the motor and found that it has a 105amp circuit breaker on it.

I think it might be the same motor as the larger snow blower has. ???

The motor turns freely so hopefully it's good.

Also I found that the main housing is in really good shape and that the blower shows very little wear from use, just lots of rust. I saved everything that looked good and scraped the rest, 1 less piece of junk on the driveway now.

 

What I want the motor for is to make an electric Flail mower. EF1

I picked up a Mott 8hp tow behind flail mower in working condition last summer, the plan is to remove the 8hp B&S gas motor and replace it with the snow blower motor so I can use it with my electric tractors.

Wow Doug....talk about a rusted auger!  Never seen such rust on an auger to not have the body eaten up also.

Wow. Bet that sat buried in the dirt for a long time! Cool little flail mower. This should be good!

Doug, I like EF1.  I think it will be a winner and a battery drainer.  I got about four decent sized driveways done with the blower before it was really drained.  I wonder how long you could mow?

 

Good luck.

This one is kinda far gone, too many things wrong with it.

Time to strip it for parts that can be used to make others better.

That's a shame.

Well, at least you kept it on life support for almost a year, before pulling

the plug. :thumbs:

Well now it parts, seized motor, trany, brake, steering spindles, rusted through front rims.

This tractor is complete, couldn't find any signs of cut into, butchered wiring anywhere, this was a working tractor that for some reason got parked and spent lots of time outside rusting up.

As it sits now.

The drive motor.

A comparison of 2 drive motors, EGT120 + EGT200, smallest and biggest main drive motors used in the large frame tractors.

Was able to get some needed parts, my buddy up north with the nice New Idea tractors asked when I got this for the rear fenders, so now these are his when he wants.

This bracket and these headlight lenses I was in need of.

002.jpg 004.jpg

 

The battery charger, front electric lift, wiring, tire chains, steering wheel, I saved anything that could be used to make others better.

 

This brings the story to a close, time to move onto another tractor.

Haha! As tribute to this rusty old elec-trak; It's 4spd transaxle has been transplanted into my EGT 120 as an upgrade over my 3spd.

Thanks Doug! I've been learning much going through your threads!

Good Stuff.  I hope the 4sp works for ya, it was just siting around taking up space at my place.

Best way I found so far to get parts is to buy a parts tractor and what ever comes with it.

 

The computer is the BEST source of info you can get, it lets you find sites like GT Talk and others that are full of info and guys willing to help.

That's how I found out all I know

 

Man that rear electric lift you have is RARE,  :thumbs:
