egt150 003.JPG egt150 009.JPG The daughter and grandsons were down today. So the EGT150 gave some rides and some driving lessons.

 

Since it was out, I took some pictures. Check the blades out.

Nice looking tractor,electric ones around here seem to be far and few at least in my searches. 

How long is the run time on one assuming the batterys are good?

A new set of 6 volt golf cart batteries about 3 1/2 acres or 3 1/2 hours.  Another battery tray could be attached on the back for another 1 acre/hr.

 

Presently, She running on three old car batteries. At work, there are some deep cycle batteries that are used for temporary battery power. For tractor shows. the boss allows me to take 3 batteries to drive thru the parade.

 

Using an DC AMP clamp, the drive motor pulls about 20 amps when in gear. The mower deck not cutting grass draws another 21 amp.

 

Here's a video

It looks a lot like my E14. They all seem to rust in the same places(at the bottom of the battery boxes). I currently run mine on three deep cycle batteries. It is getting a restoration this winter and hopefully 6 deep cell 6volt batteries if I can afford them.

Very cool, never knew they would run that long-----and in the video it seems to really take off when it's opened up.

Parts are on the way from Harold at Clean Power Supply that will fix the safety features (brakes and a key) and a set of new blades!!.

 

I've been laid up with a hammer toe on my right foot. Can't really drive a vehicle because of the protective boot.

 

Do you think the goberment would buy some new batteries for EGT150 because of my medical disability?

I would like to try some metal patching since the rusty areas are flat and small. The side panels and box body are inexpensive (3 body shop hrs/$80 plus) but I would like to try welding the patches in. There's a 63 Impala thats in the garage needs a new floor and trunk welded in, so by doing this job, I"ll have some experience on the floor.

 

The wife wants the 63 inside. Can't see it and don't have to move snow around it. Also she has her garage on the back side. She lets me park the pickup I drive back there.
