hahahahaha ahhh. Sorry on all that.You can't swing a dead cat without hitting an "electric vehicles are the future!" thread. It's on the truck forums. It's on the Jeep forums. And now it's on the tractor forums too. I'm getting really sick of it.
Somebody call me when you "fill" an electric tractor in 90 seconds and run it in the field for 8 hours straight. I can do that with my diesel tractor right now, and it won't be possible with any electric tractor in our lifetimes.
Do you really think that after 150 years of ICE engines that nothing better has gone mainstream because people just haven't tried? Get outta' here....
Maybe think some 100 years back and folks were talking about Steam Tractors taking over from Horses.
REALLY (really) interesting short read on that.
But towards your fill and go 8 hours challenge -- already there.
Cord (Grid-Tied) Connected can "fill" in Zero Seconds, and go 24 (or much more) hours straight.
