Electric Start Kit For Deere 2-Cyl. Tractors
Three kits are available: one for Deere’s 70, 720, and 730 models; one for 80, 820, and 830 models; and one for the Model R.
“The trouble with those old pony motors is that they’re expensive to repair, providing you can even find someone willing to work on them,” says Horning. “Some companies offer aftermarket kits for 2-cyl. tractors, but they include only the starter motor and mounting bracket and none of the other parts you need. You can’t always find those parts at salvage yards, and if they are available they’re very expensive.”
Kits range in price from $1,165 to $1,595.
“Those prices may seem high, but my kits include everything needed and shipping is included,” says Horning. “You save a lot of money compared to what you’ll have to pay at a salvage yard for all the components you need.
“I work at a steel fabrication shop so I’m able to build all the parts I need except for the starter and alternator, which helps keep my cost down.”
