Never hear or see much on electrics working in snow here. Wondered if anybody has an Elektrac or similar that is working out well for winter use? OR how about that new rig that the lumber yard was trying to sell? It was off-market for awhile, but supposedly coming back? Hadn't heard anymore on that one either. What cha' got?
Electric tractors working in snow?

And here's a Wheel Horse version of the Elec-Trak tossing some white stuff:
I have an E-15 set up with a plow and chains, and another E-15 set up with a snow thrower, winter cab, chains and a weight box.
Just waitin' for some snow !

Battery useable capacity is about !/2 below zero unless left on trickle or float charge before using . The original chargers were not capable of full time trickle charge hence they fell out of favor . With a float charge , battery useable capacity increases to near normal . This is for the floodies ( golf car batts )
The AGM batts suffer very little loss of capacity when left on constant charge .
