[ 1 ] Despite their limited production and availability, many Elec-Traks are still in use today, [ 2 ] and have a cult following among tractor and electric vehicle enthusiasts. [ 3 ] They are an archetypal or seminal design that has influenced all later electric tractors. Several models were produced, including: the E8M and ER8-36 (8 hp); the E10M (10 hp); the E12 and E12M (12 hp); the E12S and E15 (14 hp); the E16 (an upgraded version of the E15), and the E20 (16 hp). GE's claimed horsepower figures were somewhat hypothetical, as the 36 volt DC traction motors are not easily comparable to gasoline engines ; the table below includes "real" horsepower. The E8M and ER8-36 were styled more as ride-on mowers than tractors. GE also made an industrial version of the Elec-Trak, the I-5.

One group of fungi, the yeasts, generates their energy through a process called fermentation. Yeasts take sugar from plants, and break it down into a compound they can use for energy, along with the byproducts carbon dioxide and alcohol. Natural Pools or Swimming Ponds Natural Pools or Natural Swimming Ponds (NSPs) Let nature clean the water... Chemical-free water garden and swimming pool. The plant portion, or regeneration zone, is separated from the swimming area by the wall seen a few inches below the water’s surface.
