The New Idea EGT 80/80HD Tractor

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 OEM models produced for New Idea, the EGT80 and the EGT80HD were identical to the G.E. Elec-Trak Model E8M and Model E8HM with the exception of the color scheme and decals of course. All together, only 450 total New Idea EGT80 and EGT80HD tractors combined were ever produced so they are pretty rare. Surprisedly, if your patient you will see one come up for sale but you may have to wait literaly for years! Although only a few associated publications are listed, please see the full listing of New Idea publications for additional information.
