I would like 1.5-2 hours of run time , I’m content with the tractors slow nature and already have a level 2 50A 240vac charger for my Nissan Leaf.

I am a dual ticket Power Lineman and Electrician and have welding and metal fabrication capabilities

Simple Series wound DC motor (warp 9) and Lead acid batteries were my first thought , i am interested in what you guys thought ?
