Can you remember the smell of new-mown grass, the taste of sweet fresh air, the soft clip clip clip of the family lawn mower? These pleasures are here again with the GE Elec-Trak tractor, a quiet, cordless, odorless, dirtless, painless miracle. It represents the same advance over gas tractors as the electric light did over the kerosene lamp. You don't start the Elec-Trak tractor; you turn it on, like a light. You mow up to 3.5 acres per charge in peaceful quiet and almost shameful comfort. You never touch a gas can or an oily rag again — you "refuel" at your home "fuel pump", any handy wall outlet. Freed from the tyranny . of a noisy, smelly, dirty engine, we concentrated on what the garden tractor is supposed to do. We've replaced the engine with a reliable electric motor and replaced all those long belts and pulleys with the widest variety of mowing systems in the industry, all direct drive — motor to blade. The tool should fit the job. We give you practically a custom combination of tractor, mower, and grass discharge system. See below. Then see your dealer. You're going to enjoy summer electrically. Front mounted mower cuts 42 inches of grass before the tractor rolls over it. Patented* ball joint suspension and full rear roller provides total ground following, independent of the tractor. That means clean, even cutting. Three blades, three motors, no belts. Full visibility permits more cutting with each pass, closer trimming from both sides under and around bushes, trees and gardens. Mower goes where tractor can't. *U.S. Patent 3,619,996 Mid-mounted mowers in 42 inch width on E12M and 36 inch width on E8 and E10 tractors provide smaller cutting radius, easier maneuverability in tight places and take less storage space. Fast-acting lever lift controls cutting height from operator's seat. ® Trademark of the General Electric Company.
