Very easy conversion, replaced VW gas engine with electric motor, needed to make adapter and coupling between gearbox and motor, used one of two water tanks for battery rack wired up relay and batteries and Zamboni worked the same as when it was gas. The gearbox drives the Hydrostatic transmission and the hydraulic pumps, speed is governed by the transmission, the electric motor just drives the gearbox. We charge after each flood for 45 minutes to keep batteries up. This machine replaced our electric tractor we used before (it is now the backup) I am now working on converting a model 400 Zamboni as it is a bit smaller and would fit our rink better
