Eariler this week the electric motor from the ebay listing showed up at my (Brandon) work. Thanks to a fellow co-worker, we got it unloaded from the back of the tractor trailer and placed it onto a sturdy table. Then used the unimog crane (recently installed…thanks Kelly OToole http://industriousdog.com/) to load it and take it home! Photo attached.
I am now starting a collection of batteries, and seeking out a large charger. I have a 36V or 48V charger for some sort of device, but it may/may not work only because that relies a lot upon the batteries all being identical for a proper charge. May go with individual 12V chargers (one per batt) and make sure they aren’t ganged with a common ground or something. 🙂
More updates soon!
