A 3 phase 1/6 HP AC induction right angle reduction gear drive motor and a Sumitomo inverter lets you potentiometer speed control and is readily reversible.

Go and try the wheel chair on the hills along Ananthapur-Tadipatri Road.

good idea, jithin. An ac motor most likely means plugging it into a wall outlet.

Welcome newbie !

First, you will need at least two DC 3-5 HP motors with gear boxes.

Second, Ignore that amazon Baldor motor it is 3 phase AC and terribly over priced for a 10HP machine which could be acquired for under $1000...
