Reading the ads, the 1st one listed, it sounds like the owner either has a few and my feeling was that this was his parts GT that he's done with. Is that price high? He has the cores for the bad batteries, but even at cost I'm looking at another $350 for batteries. So almost 1K in it and still not working.


The 2nd looks too far gone for the price, along with not having the batteries.

Visual and mechanical inspection hands on can set a better value . The mower motors could be pure junk or pure gold either way . The drive motors may not even be there - happened to me once . The days of finding one easily restorable for under 300 are rare now.

Both these tractors have a mix of parts.


1st - E15 tractor with a E8 or E10 mower deck, E15s have front mount mower only, E8/E10 have mid mount mower deck 2 motors, only.


2nd - E15 tractor looks like 2 mower decks, 3 motors, yellow one is is the right one, front mount mower.

Mower shown on the tractor 3rd pic, is a New Idea mid mount that has been modified to front mount mower and missing the mower guide bracket.


Biggest problem with any electric tractor is the battery cost, then you have to fix the tractor if not working right.

If you put in a new modern electronic controller your looking at another $500. plus a pot box witch could add another $500 if you buy a good one all set up ready to go.
