Note to readers, attached is the complete final report for FNE03-472.
We converted an Allis-Chambers G from its original gas engine to run on electric battery power. The new converted tractor was inexpensive to build and the conversion can be done by inexperienced people in one relaxed weekend. Detailed (and updated)instructions on what to buy and how to build the tractor can be found at www.flyingbeet.com/electicg. The converted tractor is more powerful than the original gasoline tractor, is far more robust than the original (and easy to repair if there was a problem) and has additionally proven to be a significant marketing draw for our farm.
