Doug the Alltrax and contactor costs around $520? If yes, how much more has to be spent to get it up and going? How do you charge the batteries on this one? Just watching and trying to decide what I do with mine.
I estimate this project for me up here in Canada is going to cost $1500. to $1800. Canadian.
Battery pack alone is $800. +
This is the biggest problem with the electric tractor is that if you don't have a good battery pack right off the bat it's $800. + .
Even if you buy 3 - 12volt batteries it's $300. and you will have the same power but only 1/2 the run time.
Then you have to fix whatever is wrong with it, can get expensive.
I sat on this EGT200 one day for 3hrs non stop cutting grass, drained the battery pack down to the point where the relays, contactors start cutting out. That's about all it's going to do as I had a fresh battery pack in it, 6 - 6volt golf cart batteries.
