Most Elec-Trak mowers feature your choice of side or safer rear discharge. Rear discharge with trailer sweeper (shown) permits "one-pass" mowing and sweeping for grass or leaf pickup, Straight-through discharge eliminates clogging in long chutes. Side discharge "broadcasts" clippings when not sweeping, mulches leaves; -provides maximum vacuum action for long or wet grass." , Elec-Trak tractor mowers follow the ground, not the tractor, are independently suspended to "float" over your lawn, reduce scalping and high spots. Individual motors keep blades turning at optimum cutting speed, regardless of tractor speed. Front mower permits easy flip-up cleaning, and sharpening of blades right on the mower... even in the field with drill powered grinder that plugs into tractor for power. Remove mower by simply pulling a few pins, remove the plug and drive away without pulling or lifting. New quick-mount 48 inch sickle bar for cutting tall grass, and 52 inch gang reel mowers (not shown) give Elec-Trak tractors complete grounds care capability. Sickle bar can be used in combination with rotary mowers for up to 90 inches of cut on each pass. Elec-Trak tractors switch on instantly in sub-zero weather. Snow thrower operates on its own separate high torque motor, turning the auger independent of tractor speed. Snow/dozer blade angles to three positions from the driver's seat. Elec-Trak tractor's unique weight distribution (70% over rear driving wheels) gives much greater traction power than comparable gas tractors, permits deep snow plowing at up to 7 m.p.h. There are many different combinations of tractor, mower, and discharge systems to pick from. (See chart below.) There is a best combination for rough ground, rolling lawns, formal lawns with lots of trimming and large "country" lawns. There is a best combination for you, your pocketbook and your lawn.
