Spray on bed liner sounds like a good Idea. Have you done this to others?

 

No the guys on the other GE sites have and say it works good.

I've done it on all of my Elec-Traks.  I highly recommend it.  I use the roll-on type that comes in a gallon can.  Use that along with battery bags and you'll never see rust in your battery boxes...when properly maintained.

Very nice E15 Doug. Is it hard to find those tractors close to home?

There out there, depends where you are, in southern Ont. there seems to be a lot of the New Idea GE tractors, more than the GE branded ones.

Today I got the bedliner sprayed on, didn't turn out as good as I wanted, spent a lot of time masking/tapping everything and cleanup afterwards, I got some touch up to do then it should be good. I used the spray on because that's what I had but next time I do as was suggested and use the roll on type.

Anyway picture for today, the boss down in WV wants pictures so. ???

You'll probably have to go to Canada to do that!

TEST DRIVE :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:  

Took it for a drive toady, first thing I notice is how smooth it is and how slow you can get it to go even in top gear. It's not jerky like my EGT200 is. Top speed is less, it seems to go slower in all 4 gears compared to the 200, but it can climb a hill in top gear that the 200 can't, power use meter always in the green. Changing from forward to reverse is quick, works like a shuttle shift. 

Everything works except the lights, haven't finished wiring them up yet.

If I had to use 1 word to describe the tractor with the Alltrax controller in it would be  SMOOTH.

I like this thing. :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

Today I finished up all the wiring, lights, safety switches, everything works.

Had to change the original fuse block, it was giving me a lot of trouble with intermittent connections, but a new one is on now and that problem solved.

Put some oil in the transmission, I remembered that it was empty yesterday when I was driving it around.

Just a few finishing touches and it's done, ready to use and see what it can do.
