Mycobacterium vaccae, the key to health and happiness.

I love spring and fall, should be the most stressful time of the year for me but playing in the dirt never gets old.

Last years dry/hot weather made it tough finding morels, this year it's a bumper crop. The garage rafters are full of strings of shrooms

Ah yes... rites of spring. My rafters won't be full of strings until the fall.

If they bump up the HP from 40-70 to 350+ and the working time from 20 hours and charging time of 2-3, I'll be all ears.

Until then, they look like garden tractors to me. There aren't many farms that can utilize that small of tractor and that only run 8-10 hour shifts. Maybe farmers market type/hobby farms.

Maybe inside enclosed areas with poor ventilation or sound concerns? Mines, large animal sheds, in urban areas?

The new diesel tractors are very clean running with the DEF but yeah, inside a closed space. We use an electric payloader inside the fertilizer plant

Probably in the works. I mean, the bigger the tractor the more batteries they can do and the longer it can run. That's the same theory they're working on with Electric Semi Trucks now. And those need to work pretty long hours on those cross state trips.

I see electric semi trucks as last mile type of use. Cross country or regional ... still going to be dino juice for a very long time. I wish there was more regional cargo trains.

Autonomous tractors will be a bigger part of AG in the next decade than electric. The GPS auto steer features are already very popular.

I think companies will slowly shift if the tech becomes quality enough. It will likely start with more local companies as they won't want to buy multiple semis and the range (at least currently) will fit those companies better. As the range increases bigger companies will also get in as the reduced cost of gas and maintenance will be a huge appeal... but those companies will likely have to purchase more semi's to avoid recharging downtime. I mean you could pick up a load in N.Y., drive to California with 5 or so changeovers along the way as things are now. With increased tech allowing for longer drive times, you could see that number reduced to 4 or even 3 changeovers. Just unhook from one load, grab a fresh truck, and head for the next destination with either the same or a different load. It won't work well for independents but I can easily see local and even long haul companies eyeing the $ it could save.
Another 'missed opportunity' I see is school buses. I mean, there's probably several million if you count all of them and the application is perfect. Buses are limited to a shorter range, get plenty of 'down time' to recharge between pickups and deliveries, and the cost benefits to schools would be pretty big for them. IMHO.
