I gave my 12 yr, old grandson some instruction on operating my Elec-trak.

He did some laps around the yard and wants it for himself.

Well, now you'll have to get a replacement.
Good for you, passing on the hobby

Great looking tractor! You should tell the boy he needs to start with one that needs restoration, help him build skills for the rest of his life. Great job, passing it on!

Sure, give him everything he wants. Then complain when he starts stealing construction equipment.

I have my eye on a CENTRAL PARK riding mower that would be a good start for him.    Rick

You never know, he might be the next person to come out with something better, battery powered!!! Kudos to those kids that ACTUALLY get off thier A@@es, and dont EXPECT a check!

Besides being a gearHeaD myself, Who doesn't look at motors, and batteries?

Skies the limit, let him run with it!

Tractors and grandpas, it is all great to a young lad. Almost every week my son tells me what he got to do with grandpa's equipment. Makes lasting memories.
