My Elec-Traks - The New Idea EGT 120 Tractor

EGT 100

Mark Frerking's former EGT 120 - equivalent to the G.E. Elec-Trak Model E12M

G.E. convinced the New Idea Company of Coldwater, OH to allow them to run a line of OEM tractors for them at the same time G.E. would continue to run their own tractors down the assembly line. They sported the New Idea signature two-toned "Bittersweet" and "Buff" color scheme.

Being an OEM model produced for New Idea, the EGT 120 was identical to the G.E. Elec-Trak Model E12M with the exception of the color scheme and decals of course. All together, only 975 total New Idea EGT 120 tractors were ever produced. Remarkably, they come up for sale pretty regularly so you should not have to wait too a long time. I bought my EGT 120 from Jim Coate.
