Vehicle Mini Ride on Mower
This is a fun little project I
whipped
up when my ICE ride on was out
of
service and in the shop for 4
weeks..
here are some vids ofit. vid
was when I
had the first drive system on
it. but
wasn't strong enough for the
job.. the
vid was spend up because it
was just
too boring at normal speed
MotorCurrie Permanent Magnet DC
this project has 2 motors
1.5 hp. for the cutting deck
600watt motor for the drive
system
Drivetrainold ride on trans axle 5
speed.. 5
forward 1 reverse and neutral
this vid is when i put on the
trans
axle. this was just to make
sure it was
going to work...

ControllerCurrie
Batteries24.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Gel
both cutting deck and drive
system run
off the same battery pack.. may
give them
their own power source down the
line, for
longer cutting time..
Instrumentationvoltmeter key switch and kill
switch on a
modified gas tank
Top Speed7 MPH (11 KPH)
really don't need speed for
cutting the
grass
Accelerationplenty of torque in 1st and 2nd
gear
Rangefluctuates, depending on how
high the
grass is.. the least amount of
time i got
was 30 minutes of continuous
cutting,
most was 50 minutes...
Seating Capacity1 adult
Curb Weight150 Pounds (68 Kilograms)
about 150lbs. but just a guess..
Conversion Timetook 4 days to put it together
but not
finished was it.. trying to
think of
what
type of body i should make for
it...
thinking a hot rod look..
Conversion Costall stuff that was laying around
my
garage and in the back..
Additional FeaturesUPDATE; 3/09/12 mini was working great mowed 2.5 acres a week until last month. the brushes on the motor deck finally worn out. i have replace the motor but it runs on 48 volt. and i only have 24 volt setup right now..so my mini sits for now.but since i have made it i estimate it has mowed 120 acres worth of land til the brushes wore down.will let you know when she is up and running again..
