Drove my newly-converted-to-electric lawn tractor up and down the street today to limber the new belts and test how much power it drew running without the mower deck installed. As little as 35A downhill, as much as 85A uphill. The belts are apparently a little tight and so it doesn’t want to come to a complete stop, which is disconcerting. I hope that gets better with time. Neighborhood teens with a high school assignment to build something using renewable power this coming semester enjoyed looking at it. ☺
