  • Registry entries are great. I like to see and hear the history of the various tractors. The EV 8N looks quite interesting. I would love to see some of the details of how it was built. A robotic 8N. A couple of servos for speed and steering and you could cut the grass from your front porch...

  • I have mostly fixed things that were all ready electric.. This was my first conversion. I do have an ev motorcycle that i picked up with bad batteries. If i ever get the kids thru college i plan on changing it over to a lithium pack... but to date, it just sits in the corner of the garage.

  • You should send this into the N-News as they'd be interested in running your story I'm sure...
