I took E15 with a 10" Brinly plow down to a Plowday event in PA, wanted to see what it could do. Saw some old friends and met some new ones, the weather nice and the fields good for plowing.
I ran the tractor at least 2hr maybe 3hrs total and at least 1hr pulling the plow. Found that when in L or 2nd gear tractor has lots of power but moves a little slow, in D1 or 3rd gear it still has lots of power and moves a bit faster power use meter in the middle of the green, in D2 or 4th gear it can pull the plow, speed is faster, power use meter is at the top of the green and it feels like it's struggling, D1 or 3rd seems to be the best gear to use.
Traction was not a problem I had Carlisle All Trails on with NO extra weight added.
After I got home I checked the batteries to see how much charge was left and they were at about 50%.
I am really happy with the way it performed these GE tractors can do it and looking forward to going to another Plowday. Thanks to Alan for the pictures.
