Lucy, gosh darn, yur so smart.
Can you imagine burying this tractor in a slough? You couldn't pay me enough to come near that thing to hook up to it. Having a 500hp vfd in a stable dry control room is one thing, but having one strapped to a tractor dealing with moisture or water, moving, twisting and yet having a man sitting on it!
I for one, have seen electric frequency drives explode, and when those IGBT's blow, the force bends .5" steel bus bars like twizzlers. And that's with drives that are only a few hundred hp.
Might as well operate a hydrogen powered tractor.
