My Elec-Traks - The Wheel Horse A60


The Wheel Horse A-60

After the 1974 acquisition of the Elec-Trak line by Wheel Horse, the company took over the plant in New York and continued producing the electric tractors but with a much more limited offering of models. There were only three models of Wheel Horse "Elec-Traks" which were equivalent models to the ER8-36, E14 and the E20. They were of course painted Wheel Horse's classic red in color. They continued production for only a year before they moved production to South Bend, IN. Wheel Horse continued to experiment with electric garden tractors beyond the first G.E. Elec-Trak models for a short time until ending production of them enitrely in 1983. Each of these Wheel Horse models are pretty rare as they manufactured very few of any of them.

Wheel Horse had planned to and did indeed introduce the A-60 in 1974 as a competitor to the General Electric Elec-Trak line. As luck would have it, Wheel Horse ended up acquiring the entire Elec-Trak line from General electric that very sam year so now they had two small riders along with the ER8-36 Elec-Trak. Few of either model was sold that year so they are evry rare but it is a fun little rider for small yards.
