Golden motors fabricated this motor for me with a custom shaft for an additional $50. Very reasonable.
ControllerSevcon Gen4 Size 2
Batteries2 SP-48V25-EP, 48.00 Volt, Lithium Iron Phosphate
I really didn't want to go this route, but the
equivalent SLA batteries would have weighed 280lbs, assuming I could have found somewhere to mount them.
System Voltage48 Volts
ChargerSchumacher INC-4825A
48V 25A
HeaterHand warmers -- worth it!
DC/DC Converter Drok 48V to 12V 15A 180W
For lights, power chute, and hand warmers.
Top Speed6 forward, 2 reverse.
RangeThe heaviest use was after a storm that dumped 18" to 24" of snow. We have a large drive and it took a little over an hour to clear, all on one charge.
Conversion TimeApprox. three months.
Conversion CostRidiculous, mainly because of the LiFePO4
batteries.
