    Default Alternator/Generator

    I see that some little GT's are now advertising that their garden tractors have a built in generator. This sounds like a great idea! Now I know it's not big enough to run a house or anything large, but it'd sure be nice to run a saw or drill out in the back 40 easily. It would be nice to have it replace the Alternator/Dynamo of the BX so it was always on board, not something I'd have to mount/dismount all the time.

    Has anyone seen one of these GTs and how they are doing it? Its' something I want to do.....

    Perhaps they are hooking an inverter to the battery to give 120 volts.

    John deere is the one that is building in the generator on some of their garden tractors... handy idea.

    I believe Cub Cadet also had them..mid sixty up thru.

    One good thing about the setup..once you started the tractor you didn't need your battery any longer.
