RC Lawn Helper

Post by tonythemediaguy » Tue May 28, 2019 10:04 am

This is mainly an RC lawn mower, but I have plans for more attachments. A wheelbarrow for the front, a hedge trimmer for field mowing. It's got a ton of power! It can pull my 350lb trailer with me in it, up my driveway at about a 15degree angle.

The tow ball and solar panels both slide out pretty easily of the perforated square tube. I'm using the 34V 60Amp controller with these Quantum Q6 motors.
