Wow, that's neat. Only one charge. Big garden. So what's next, do you have disks, cultivators or do you till it ?? That plow works very good. Noel.

Doug, nice job. Effortless! What's the whine? Tranny or electric motor? Nice speed too!

Trany makes all the noise.

It's been to 3 plow days already, 1st one trany broke on the 1st pass, 2nd one conditions were really tough and it didn't do so well, 3rd one made 5 - 6 rounds and did much better up till trany got stuck in 1st gear, creeper gear, still moved but super slow.

PA plowday is too big for it I think it would only last for 1 round then batteries would be drained.

Maybe be able to make 3 or 4 rounds at Dans Plowday. ???

 Yes I have discs and cultivators for it and plan on trying them out on it.

Can someone embed the video so I can watch it without going to YouTube... My IPad requires upgrading before I can use YouTube apps again...
