I'm curious since I've never used or worked one before, how long do they run on a single charge on good batteries, for instance, mowing a flat yard?

There's 6 batteries, correct?

If you know the specs of the motor, and we can calculate the load from adding the PTO and know the AH of the batteries, we can do math and figure out the number! Yay!

And in the real world find out we were totally wrong. :D

It must be surreal mowing in near silence aside from the deck noise and whine from the motor.

 

I bet you'll hear a bearing going bad a few years before you would on a gas powered tractor. :lol:

Ok, I’ve gotta ask.  Please tell me those headlights are functional!?!?!?  The broken lens is trying to trick my mind… is there something behind there other than a hood?

Yes they work. Cover is broke. Will be looking for replacement. May change bulbs to LED…Maybe the guy who does 3D printing??? @Wheel Horse 3D???
 

I’ll be posting a lot more pics. The hood covers another tray for 3 more batteries… I’m running it on 3 right now, as that’s how it came… 2 under seat and one under hood…

I have one of the 3-D printed lenses for that style hood and while it doesn’t look exactly like the original I think it looks good on there and it works well. 210BB7D0-DE42-422F-952F-DDE098612DD2.jpeg.b8bb518f969d109e0df3e53dc02dc350.jpegD641462E-98A3-41FF-A329-C1DD7B32CD68.jpeg.4bc03795b71b3c94fd8f632cc8b4706b.jpeg

Question I’ve thought of often.  In a bank of 3 batteries in series to create 36v, can you still pull 12v off one battery for lights, other accessories, etc?

Well, since the lights work I’m gonna say yes… I have not had time to dive into this one…

Yep. You can get 12, 24, or 36. Your choice. Its just like tapping transformer windings to get different outputs.

You do that ... especially when it comes time to buy batteries! My head would be swiss cheese I had to tell SWMBO ! spent 800+ on a dead horse! Sides B hood heavy over here! :D

@Achto had a line on on a nice one but the batteries were a deal breaker. I had a line on one too with new batts for a real decent price but the guy backed out at the last minute. 

 

Sorry I boned you on the lens Sylvia but it was Dan's fault for destroying my brain cells.... :lol:

 

You get a ahold of @Wheel Horse 3D ?

 

Hey Craig how'd you get my loader back? I was  just workin it last nite!

Black Hood heavy??? :confusion-confused:

That’s just crazy talk @WHX??

Musta got into the cheese curds again last night… :law-policeblue:

 

All’s forgiven on your confused state of mind… a lack of Black Hoods in the stable causes that…

 

:occasion-clown:

 

I’m thinking over options on this here :scared-shocked: Black Hood… gotta decide if I’m gonna just keep her as is or pretty her up for SL&WHN RR duties. She’s gonna be my go to tug for the train, so I’m probably going to get her looking right proper including the headlight bezel… but… I’m also thinking she needs another :scared-shocked: playmate so… could be more news… or, :hide:

I may go “missing” if Mrs. Sylvia says :snooty:

 

In any event, it’s pretty cool driving this thing around quietly… very unique… :ph34r:

Pay attention to grounding. Probably at the negative terminal of the first battery in the string. From there to each of the positives in the string will be 12v, 24v, and 36v respectively. You could tap across the 2nd or 3rd battery for 12v (or the 2nd and 3rd for 24v), but you'd have to be sure to isolate both conductors from the tractor ground and any other positives.

I’d like to order one. All black with frosted lens. Couldn’t figure out which one that would be from your Etsy menu choices… I use satin black Rustoleum…

 

Pm me and give me the details…
