After lobbying many years to have a major corporation build a new innovative
non-gasoline powered electric tractor without success, a group of us decided
to take up the challenge and give it a try. We have created Modern
Electric Tractor Inc or METI.
us are Elec-Trak "junkies" and believe there is a need to have a new
machine on the market to replace the aging ones built in the early
1970's. We believe that a modest priced reliable electric machine has a
place in today's world.
prototype is currently under construction using a state of the art controller,
reliable DC motor technology, increased lift capability, and proven
transmission for optimum drive wheel torque. It will be built in
two goals. Manufacture a custom electric tractor of new design which
will be capable of using existing implements and accessories and to offer
control and design improvements to keep the old ones operational. This
provides a unit that can operate on pennies a day instead of dollars per hour,
be maintenance free, and provide a long service life.
Elec-Trak forum and website has provided us with inspiration to make this
invite you to our website which is still under construction to keep track of
our progress and watch us grow!
