Six yrs ago I converted a Massey MF10 to battery powered electric drive and it still works.

Today I started prepping it for winter duty, pushing the snow off the driveway. Still needs chains and weights put on it but this yr I'm not getting caught with nothing ready.

I've seen this machine work. You just can't believe how good it plows! Doug did such a super job on the conversion it doesn't surprise me to see it still going. Boy, can he sneak up on you!

I always think its creepy watching electric equipment work. Seeing something move without hearing internal combustion is a odd experience.

No offense though, it is a cool build. I just remember the first time i seen a hybrid scoot across the floor at vo tech with no engine noise lol

It would be good to see some details on the conversion. If you could maybe give us some details on the motor, batteries, etc. It's a great conversion. Congratulations.
