Re: (ET) Acquiring E15 - Questions

And yet another Elec-Trak in VA!

Welcome aboard - I have found this group to be of great help to me.

Tractor should be very quiet - mine improved after changing out the 
motor bearings. Others have noted that the transaxle is pretty simple
(straight cut gears, etc)  and not as quiet as it could be.

The '250V' outlet is actually a 36VDC high amp outlet for plugging in the
power cable from the mower deck, snow thrower, etc.  There is a smaller
outlet next to it for hand-held accessories such as chainsaw, drill, etc.

Don't know about the steering wheel. Mine turns pretty easy, but I haven't
mowed with it yet.
