Oh yeah.  My favorite Elec-Trak attachment has to be the rotary inverter.  It's nice to have quiet clean portable 110VAC power to use anywhere on your property!

As far as favorite attachment...I would have to go with the Ariens GT Bagger-Vac in the fall.  It makes leaf collection so much easier.  I have a lot of leaves, so I'm a little biased to that attachment!  =)

 

Seconded. This is the first year using my GT-18 and I was amazed at how well the bagger-vac works at picking up leaves. I feel like Moses parting the sea when I turn around after making the first pass through my backyard.

How many amps can you draw off it? And for how long? I have a good sized portable generator that will run any of my power tools,  but I do hate the noise the thing makes.

It's about a 1000W inverter.  It will run most small hand tools.  I used it to power a 500W halogen work light for hours one night working outside.  The tractor had plenty of power left when I was done.  The best part was the lack of noise and exhaust smell.  It sounds like an electric motor running.  It's basically a 36VDC electric motor turning a generator for AC power.  Not mine, but this is what it looks like.  They were made by Redi-line for the Elec-Trak tractors.  They still make them today.  You can get them in 12V, 24V, and 36V versions.  They make a larger 1600W version as well.  You are probably better off using an engine driven generator at that point.  The 1600W version won't last too long on 6x6V batteries.

I knew I shouldn't read this thread. Now my wish list has grown and I got a dream of things I would rarely use.

Depends on the season!   :D

 

I, too, probably use the loader as much as anything!
