    Ariens AMP Rider EV riding mower (100% electric)

    It's not a Tesla, but I figured someone here might be interested :) This is the Ariens AMP Rider, a US-made 100% electric riding mower. It has a 34" deck with two direct drive 1.7HP brushless DC motors, one per blade, and a hydrostatic drive powered by a 4HP brushless DC motor. Goes up to 5 mph forward and 2.5 mph in reverse (the blades cut-off automatically when you back-up)

    I rebuilt the battery pack with new batteries in 2013 just before we moved to the desert of California, so I have mowed fewer than 10 times since?they were new. They run like new and give up to 60 minutes of mowing (depending on terrain, grass thickness and moisture).

    I took this video so you can hear just how quietly it operates:

    and I made this video to show how to turn on the mower and cutting deck, and how the auto cutoffs work:

    You can mow with the removable bag attached, or loosen a couple of nuts to remove the adapter and go with the regular side discharge.

    Also includes a new mulching kit with block-off plate and mulching blades.

    The automatic 120V charger recharges the battery pack in 8-12 hours (depending on how far down you run the batteries).

    The blade motors cut-off automatically when battery power gets low so you have enough juice to drive back to the charger.

    Overall it's in very good condition, with just a few scrapes and dings. The right tab on the rear cover is broken (see picture) but it doesn't affect operation at all.

    *** IMPORTANT *** If you won't be picking it up yourself (I'm in Victorville, CA north of Los Angeles) you will have to?work with me to arrange for shipping at your expense: the asking price **DOES NOT** include shipping. The mower alone weighs 530 lbs; the charger, bag kit and mulch kit will add some weight too. The mower is 61" L x 45" W x 42" T.
