Elec-Trak Serial Numbers

Elec-Trak Serial Numbers

Postby EtnaInst » Wed Jan 16, 2013 3:23 pm

General Electric Elec-Trak serial numbers of known machines.

The serial number appears to break down into 4 parts:
The first character is the month, A-M (skipping I).
The second character is the year: NPRST for 1970, 71, 72, 73, and 74.
The third and forth characters are the day of the month.
The final 3 characters are a running sequence number (by model),
rolling over from 999 to 000 to 001.

The listing assumes that each roll-over represents exactly 1000 machines,
and so the number given in "Total" is *probably* the actual number of
machines of that type made as of that date.

Note that the "E12", "E12M", and "E12S" are listed as 3 separate models,
since that is really what they are!

Anyone wishing to contribute additional serial and model numbers is
invited to send them via e-mail to:

Larry Chace <rlc1@etnainstruments.com>

As a reward, I will reply with the updated spreadsheet (but not including
any identification as to the tractor's owner's identity).

Re: Elec-Trak Serial Numbers

Postby colinmcc » Mon Jan 21, 2013 1:40 am

My E8M has
Model:(Punched letters)26AE8 then the letters BA scratched on. (note there is no '0' between the E and 8)
Serial (Punched letters) DT19 .066

Can you please educate me as to what the E8R was? I thought that E8 was without mower, E8M was with mower..

Thank you,

Colin

E8R were "refurbed" models. In late 73-74 GE realized that 1/2 of the Elec-Traks ever meade were still sitting on dealer's showroom floors and that meant a substantial dollar amount in inventory that GE was carrying. GE called in all the machines from the low performing dealers back to the plant. These machines were refurbed to the latest engineering levels (for the most part) and re-issued back out to the field with new serial numbers.

There was no E8 to my knowledge, only E8M. The M meaning mid-mount mower. (Example E12M). The E8M came standard with a mower deck included.

Your machine was made April 19th, 1974 Sequence number 66. Hope that helps?

Thanks Geo! Is that when the BA was hand scratched onto the end of the Model Number?

My guess is yes. I suspect the guy punching the serial numbers did not have his punch set correctly and neglected to put the BA on the tag. Went back and scratched it on. With over 33,000 units made, little flub-ups like that were bound to happen along the way. Much of the work done by machine/robots/computer today was still done by hand back then.

I must apologize for the confusion resulting from my use of "E8R" as a model type. That designation was meant to represent the ER8-36 riding mower, not a refurbished E8 (tractor). Back when I was starting the serial number spreadsheet, I tried to make it easy to sort the list in various meaningful ways, and so "E8R" seemed more useful than "ER8-36". The items listed as "E8R" do show the correct model number (26AER8AA).

Also for reasons of "good sorting", I recoded the E8M model numbers from 26AE8xx to 26AE08xx.

As George indicated, Colin's E8M (DT19 066), was "born" on 19 April 1974. Based on other serial numbers for E8M tractors, we can say that it was probably the 2066th E8M.

Ah that's were the ER8-36's are! The large frame tractors with an "R" in the number are the refurbs. Apparently then they never refurbed any of the small-framed tractors, probably just shipped them out again.
