Finally put it all together, EGT200 tractor, snow blower and weights.

I put on my 50lb wheel weights, the tires are full of cracks but hold air. ???

GE never offered wheel weights, they used a weight box that you would put cement blocks or weight in.

They also had a range extender that held 3 - 12volt batteries hooked up to the battery pack for a longer run time and added weight.

I have the smaller weight box and put 250lbs of suitcase weights in it.

Snow blower PTO is a power cord plugged into the tractor, uses an electric lift with assist springs.

Hand crank for rotating the shoot.

Looking forward to trying it.

So for now it sits waiting for snow.

I'd say yes, same width, 36" plus extensions, 42"

Be interesting to see how it does compared to the Massey, gas vs electric.  ???

I don't know ???  100lbs wheel weights + 250lbs in the weight box.

Tractor is 900+ lbs Plus 350 extra weight, Plus what ever the snow blower weighs.

Plus me.

Looks great Doug. I would be worried about run time. I often thought that a hybrid arrangement would be doable with one of those compact inverter type generators sitting on the back end for weight and to power to the charger. They are quite compact and maybe 70lbs and quiet as well.

Doug  It looks great.  Ready to go.  I take it you haven't used a snow blower on the Elec Trak series yet?  I find mine does not like wet snow.  A little wax or dollar store non stick is really helpful.  Good luck.  I know you'll keep us posted.

 

Brian.  Run time is longer than I expected.  I used the Elec Trak one season and found I could do three or four average driveways before the tractor got tired.  I mean average two and four car driveways no longer than two car lengths.  I don't think my batteries were anywhere near their peak.  I'm sure they aren't now, but I just never get to use it much.

I'd just rather it didn't snow this year! :D

 

That is cool, though, got to be quiet compared to gas or diesel.
