DC/DC Converter

the tractor is unstoppable!

Watt Hours/Milenot really a useful figure for a lawn mower... pulls avg 100A
at 24V during normal mowing
Seating Capacity1 adult
Curb Weight900 Pounds (409 Kilograms)
that's a guess. heavy.
Conversion Timea few days
Conversion Cost$900 including tractor. converted almost entirely with junk I
already had lying around
works great. I can mow my whole acre in one hour. estimate peak 6HP; it's enough.
10HP would be nice.
