Our Solar Electric Tractors (Solectrac) are a full function agricultural and utility tractor that operates with up to 5 times the efficiency of a diesel tractor performing the same farming tasks.
Solectrac's tractor uses the three point hitch for Class I implements and carry exchangeable battery packs in this location. The models: eFarmer and eUtility Tractor provide portable power, home power, water pumping and other mechanical functions including hauling and transportation needs.
Because the Solectrac is electric its batteries can be charged directly by clean renewable energy or it can be charged at low cost from the electric utility grid at off-peak rates.
Solectracs use patented “quick change” battery packs to extend operational periods.
