As you can see, the company manufactures machines for different levels of agricultural work load. And the most important feature (and many other manufacturers today are going this way) of Solectrac electric tractors are replaceable battery packs. That is, while the # farmer is working on the tractor in the field, the replaceable battery pack is being charged. The charging time is quite consistent with the operating time, so you can safely work the entire working day on the Solectrac electric tractor, changing the battery 1 or 2 times, depending on the workload.
