The scrapyard near here that I visit 2 or 3 times a week recently got this in.

The batteries were missing and the mower was priced @ $220 so I passed on it.Someone else bought it to restore. I'm glad t found a home.

It sounds a little steep, but glad it wasn't crushed and made into who knows what!

That GE looks to be pretty solid. I think I would have bought it but then I've always wanted one and there are none to be had here.

That GE doesn't look too bad.  For 220 someone got a pretty good deal.

Someone got a good deal. That seat is worth $50 by its self. I would have been very tempted. And, probably would have bought it for $220. But the problem with electrics is you need to spend $600 on batteries to get started fixing it!

Somebody got a good one to fix up with a mower deck, front blade with the angle handle adjust, and tire chains.

I too feel it was a good deal. I sell Trojan batteries, $660 for a set of T605s without cores. Without batteries, add another $180 to that price...soooo then you hunt CL for a used 36V Ezgo TXT with good batteries for $200-$300 and scrap or sell the car.

 

I would have bought it.

Whats the difference between a T605 and a T105?

Generally, Amp hours or in golf car talk, ride time. 105s will last a bit longer. I sell them for $5 more. 105s outsell the 605s 10 to 1
