Wasn't aware WH even had electrics, but one is on epay now, sorry no link. Went thru 34 pages of WH stuff and it was in last few. Maybe a search with "electric" in it will bring up easier. Just a rider, not a tractor and no seat. Think it had $399 listed on it.

I did see not to long ago that a bunch of the manufacturers made Electric versions back in the 70's. Our Electric guys will know a lot more about it.

I did a minor  ( rant ) on another site about this topic  .  What happened with the GE line as it transferred to AMC and Wheelhorse  during  1974 still has some people from that era  a little  riled or  uninformed or just plain indifferent . For just a  " few " being built , a lot of red electrics were seen over the years -   same as always . The right garage door had to be open or the right person spoken with .    Sort of like the Bush Hog  JB1.

I could add that I sold a WH  A65 to Geof from METI in 2007  ( before METI was formed ) .  Two WH full size are in constant use in my area  . I have talked with people who dismantled new and  junk  WH electrics .
