I picked this up today, 2hrs away from me, came unmolested and almost complete without batteries, with a mower deck.

Needs a main disconnect switch, I put a set of batteries in it and was able to get it working.

Growling noise from motor or trans/axle ??? plus a few other things not working 100% but it's fixable I hope. Rust wise the frame is good, rear battery box has some holes in it but still solid.

Front tires cracked bad and the seat.

Plan to fix it up and get it working best I can.

That one looks to be in good shape on the outside.  I saw one all restored at my local show.  They are smooth little rascals.

Yesterday I drove it, :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:  for the first time. 

Had to replace the main disconnect switch and 1 heavy gauge wire, having some trouble with 1 of the small finger relays, doesn't want to go into forward all the time, ??? but all the controller speeds work even the cruise control.

PTO works and the charger. Still have to get the electric lift mounted and working, and the lights but so far all the circuits work.

I don't know when the last time the tractor ran or was used to do any work and I'm sure some problems will occur as I start to use it more and more.

 

I have a bad habit of tearing stuff apart and letting them sit, not finishing them so this one I think I'll keep it together and repair as needed so I can use it when I want.

 

I like this thing, it's so different, no gas, oil, spark plugs, smoke and less noise.

I guess I have what's called the "EV grin" on my face.

 

I have 2 of these EGT200's Serial # 4099 and 4100.
