I didn't even know the things existed until I started coming here. I grew up German Mennonite (read VERY stingy) and that was not the kind of tool that anyone we ever knew invested money in. I've still never seen one in person. The last one I have seen online was missing a gear or something and they were still mighty proud of it. Hang onto the one you have - just never know when one will make itself known.

I don't think that $5000 is very "Proud". The 400 was worth about $3000 and a trailer Electrall is worth about $2000. It's no big deal to find a trailer Electrall. Let me see you find a sidemount Electrall for sale when you want one. Some say that only 103 were sold. Quite a few were cannibalized to build homemade gensets.

There is a fellow in MN who has reproed several sidemount gearboxes. I believe one of them went to MO where the eBay 400/Electrall is/was located.

I haven't followed the status on that tractor since the failed auctions last fall or the sale of the gearbox but I know both parties. An email to either could bring me up to date.

I found an Electrall in my barn and did not know what it is until reading this post. Do you have an idea what they are worth?

Depends on condition and completeness.

Most valuable is the sidemount Electrall. If properly advertised and the owner is not in a hurry, it should bring over $5000 and maybe alot more to a motivated buyer.

Next would be a Fast Hitch Electrall. They may have a rarity approaching the sidemount. However, the unit is not as desireable as the location limits other tractor applications at the rear.

Trailer Electralls can be found fairly easily. Good units can be had for between $1500 and $2000.

IH pickup truck Electralls have to be extremely rare. I haven"t seen a parts breakdown on one yet so I don"t know if they can be built from another type of IH/GE Electrall. Anyway, they shouldn"t be worth much. Maybe $500.

Here's some background to my original post:

My father bought the Electrall, complete, perhaps 15 or 20 years ago at a local auction ("local" means within 50mi of the farm here in Northern IL). He mounted it on the side of the 450 at some later time and it's been there since. I know it works "mechanically" and I think it works "electrically" (meaning it'll product power at the outlets).

The other "Electrall" accessories, e.g., the baler motor, we do not own.

In later years, I bought an Electrall owner's manual for the unit via Ebay and gave it to my father for a Christmas present.

It's never been used for anything productive to my knowledge, i.e., it's never been used for backup power during an outage.

I took pictures of it a few years ago, mounted on the 450, but I can't find them as-yet. I'll take some more (or find the ones I've got!) and post them here when I can.

I will post, now, some images of an Electrall brochure that I happened upon. I hope I manage to post them correctly; this is my first time here :o)
