Just got back from the show, it was smaller than what I remember from last time I was there but still for me a good day. I displayed my Electric Massey ET2, and met a fellow that brought 3 factory electric tractors, 2 in original condition.

GE12M - restored

John Deer 90 - original

Wheel Horse A60 - original

 

All these tractors are in working condition.

Wow, the Massey looks right at home with that bunch.  How was the rest of the show?  Did you get much interest from people over the electric GT's?

Rest of the show was good, saw lots of stuff and there was some interest in the electric tractors.

Most people thought they were all conversions, when they found out 3 were factory made, marketed back in the late 60's early 70's some were surprised.

A couple wanted to buy one for themselves.

Glad you took a day trip and enjoyed yourself Doug.
Did the ET2 suffer any tranny issues?

Thanks for posting those pictures , :thumbs: Until I joined GTT  I never knew there were so many electrics made back then .I can see a comeback if gas prices rise or more gov. regulations on noise and pollution . The batteries are getting better , electronics for controls , heck you might buy a tractor that comes with a solar panel for the shed roof to charge it for free !!

ET2 didn't have to move during the show so the trany worked awesome.
