Fixing up a classic NO GAS lawn mower

by Ben N on April 1, 2010

Last summer, I got the chance to purchase a GE Elec-Trak – a 1970’s vintage battery-electric riding lawn mower.

We have had some nice spring weather the last few days, so I took the opportunity to do a little work fixing up the mower. I am repainting it as I can, scraping and grinding the rust, priming, and coating with a nice glossy sun yellow.

Here’s what I did the other day.

Here’s the back deck as it originally was (minus the chair), stripped and rust ground off as best I could, and primed.

More to come as I keep working on it!
