Serial# 4099
This is my new to me Electric tractor.
EGT200 came with rear discharge mower deck and snow blower.
Plan on restoring this one to as close to new working tractor.
Anybody know when this one was made?

Doug , this where documentation gets relly fuzzy. According to records only 4000 or so were transferred to Avco NI between April 1974 and late 1975. One year window.

So it's a 74 or most likely a 75?

Was there a 3 point hitch for these or just the sleeve hitch?

I have never seen reference to 3 pt hitch . Sleeve hitch standard. However retrofits have been with us a long time .

I asked before on another thread about paint and found out that the orange is Bittersweet.
Rustolem#559 or H-25

But what about the white parts, are the wheels and white panels the same, or are the wheels white and the rest off white?
Anybody know?

Doug - Mark Frerking seems to be the one to ask . White is only on hood of body in addition to wheels. If you choose wrong - well redo not serious. Wrong answer for true restorer.
