more info on electric ox
you already know it's direct drive with regen braking, 2wd
the MP (multi-purpose) model base price is $6950 list.
the options seem quite pricey to me, to wit:
110v 800w inverter $695.00 !!!
44" mower deck $1225.00
48" blade (scraper??) $440.00
on board chgr (overnight charging)
separate forward and reverse pedals
parking bake that automatically applies when stopped
6 6v batteries
mower deck is front mount
5 hr mowing time per charge
790 pounds (without attachments)
coming later this year:
Not quite as robust and heavy duty sounding as the Elec-trak but
nice features (regen braking) and a good start.
For my money and my use (farm chores) I think I still need an elec-trac
in my finding one would be greatly appreciated!!
