Introduction: Radio Controled Wheel Chair (The Beast)
parts list to "The Beast" 4x 12V 18ah Battery's (you can use bigger 'ah' if you have the charger for them) 1x "Sabertooth dual 60A motor driver" from www.dimensionengineering.com ..... I found out that the motors on this wheel chair base will use more then 12A - 25A at one time, the 60A is best for the power use. 1x "wireless winch controller" 12V on www.Ebay.com (up to you on type) The knobby tires are from Ebay as well and 1x Winch motor reversing solenoid contactor relay 6 Term, Ebay also. It's up to you on how big of a radio you want to use for yours, I went with a 2ch the winch controller has it's own remote.... Ok the how..... use 2x 12V 18ah (you need heavy wire here to handle the high flow of power) to get 24V for the main part of the chair. The battery's feed the Sabertooth motor controller and the Sabertooth will feed power to the receiver. Now as you can see in the pic's the receiver is wired to the Sabertooth and the chair motors are as well. The 3rd motor on top is by it self with winch controller ( DO NOT use the 2nd set of battery's for the winch controller on the Sabertooth or you will lose control of your project) Now for the winch controller and motor..... The last 2x battery's are wired for 24V as well But you wire the winch controller as 12V or you will burn it out.... the 24V will go the "motor reversing solenoid contactor" and then to the motor. Also I use my "Beast" to move trailer's around the yard and to pull a lawn mower for yard work and when there is snow out here I will redo the arm with the hook so I can put a home made snow plow on there, any other idea's???? YOU MUST fallow all your wiring instructions for your set up.. I just added a new pic of the beast, this is a snow plow blade I found on a scarp run... it works but is not done (we just had 6" of snow from 10-27-2013---10-29-2013)...Any question's???? feel free to ask and I will answer the best I can.
