FS: BIG electric motors

've got three 36v forklift steering motors. They're big, beefy, and used. Rated as 1 1/3 HP "special" duty. They draw 4.1A no load at 36v. With the gearbox, they draw 4.3A no load. Speed for the motor alone 3225RPM , with the gearbox is 75RPM. Torque must be something outrageous. They have an optional mating 43:1 Sumitomo-made gearbox which I reckon would make these some great drive motors for a large heavy project. Without gearbox, they would be excellent for go-karts, suicidal ebikes, etc. I even know of a e-car project that used a similar motor. (forkenswift) The motors alone weigh about 18lbs. Not sure what they weigh with the gearbox. You want one. I have three. I'm asking $100 each for the whole motor/gearbox shebang. Pictures:

I want one! (A friend might want 2) How much to ship to NM? (zip code 87507)
Do 2 of them match? My friend needs matching ones
nedfunnell (author)  LinuxH4x0r8 years ago
All three match, and two of them are currently built up together in a matching pair. One is disassembled in a motor/gearbox combo. To ship two to 87507 would probably be around $50 according to USPS.
how much to ship 3? Would you give me a discount if I bought them all? Thanks!
nedfunnell (author)  LinuxH4x0r8 years ago
Looks like $70 to ship 3. I think I could knock $20 off for all three. I might also be interested in trades.
Hmm, thats $310, how about 300 even?
nedfunnell (author)  LinuxH4x0r8 years ago
I think you might have made an arithmatic booboo- (3*100)+70-20=$350. I think that's a good price.
Doh! I thought you meant ((100-20)*3)+70=310

Steve was asking 80 a piece + 80 shipping or 320

I agree with your price, but I'm just the middle man arranging it here
nedfunnell (author)  LinuxH4x0r8 years ago
That clears things up. Let me know whether Steve is interested for $350 or not. Thanks!
