E15 Restoration Page 1 - First Look

I had long wanted to try an electric lawn tractor, but Had no impetus to do so.Then, in April/May of 2008, our 13+ year old gas riding mower started to have all sorts of problems.I patched it up, but it was obvious a replacement was needed.After searching the usual places, I located an E-15 for sale in Michigan.It looked somewhat promising, and was already started as a project.Hereís what was advertised (the dog was not included):

Didnít look too bad at the time, it seemed to be mostly sheet metal work.And it was complete and correct, with a mower deck, for only $400!So I went for it.Unfortunately, the shipping wound up being more than the sales price, but themís the breaks, I guess.For some reason, most of these are located in the northeast and Midwest, and I needed to have it shipped to Savannah, GA.I guess Iíll find out if there was a reason why GE didnít sell these down hereÖ
