The converter is an Electrac accessory, a non-tech job with a 36vdc motor
on one end and a 110vac generator on the other.  It must weigh 15 or 20
pounds.  I carry it on a special mount I built for the front end of the
tractor.  It plugs in to the same outlet that the mower plugs into.

I can cut firewood all day and haul in a few loads on one charge.  Compared
to a couple of hours mowing or maybe 30 minutes with the rototiller.
