Greetings! I have 14 tables that I role from my trailer to venues for shows. I took apart a electric scooter just to try and it worked great! I would like to know what I would need to role 14 tables measuring 2' x 4' and weighting about 400-500 lbs. each. Most ground is level and smooth but there are some ramps that are steep and can be 50' long. I only need 1 wheel with 24v motor, controller, throttle. I will be using 2 12v deep cycle batteries. Thank you for your help.
To start off, we have several kits available for beach carts that would work equally as well for a table moving cart. These kits can be found on this page:
Do you want to move all 14 tables at once, or one at a time?
I need a little more information in order to figure out the gear ratio for this project so the cart will go the speed and have the power that you want it to.
This calculation was made with the following parts in mind:
Thank you very much for your reply. When I was testing the tables with the scooter hooked up. I also hooked up a DC amp meter. It had 60 amp surges going up hill and 30 amp on straight ways. Would your controller and motor hold up to that with 14 tables? Also, could you please work up a package that would include a pneumatic 10" wheel with chain sprocket, motor, controller and thumb throttle. thank you.
Most electric scooters are geared to go around 12-15 MPH, so when going slow with a heavy load they will pull a lot of Amps. With a motor geared to go only 3.36 MPH the motor and controller will draw a lot less Amps than one geared to go 12-15 MPH. With this slow gearing the Amp pull should be well under 30 Amps which our motors and controllers can easily handle. I will start working on the kit with 10" wheel, chain sprocket, motor, controller and thumb throttle. None of our 10" wheels have 1/2x1/8" bicycle chain sprockets on them which is needed to be used with the 24 Volt 450 Watt gear motor, so I will have to include a 10" wheel with #25 sprocket and a separate 44 tooth bicycle chain sprocket and you will need to either bolt the 44 tooth bicycle chain sprocket onto the #25 sprocket, or have them welded together. I need to know if you want the cart to go forward only or to have reverse so I can include the right speed controller. Do you want the cart to be unidirectional, or to have forward and reverse?
350 Watt 450 Watt
This is the type of wheel at looking for. I used the drive tire from my scooter and it worked great. Could you please work up a kit for me with the 450 watt motor and controller. Do you have a small wheel that could accommodate the 44 tooth sprocket?
We do not have any wheels that the 44 tooth sprocket will mount onto without modification. The 44 tooth sprocket is a bicycle crank sprocket that can be modified to fit most rear wheels by drilling bolt holes into it, or it can be mounted onto an existing sprocket with bolts.
I can certainly make a kit for your project. I need to ask a few questions before I begin:
Forgive my delay. No reverse. Is there such a thing as a wireless throttle? Yes, I would like a kit for this project or anything you can help me with here. Thank you very much.
We do not have wireless throttles and I am not aware of anyone else who has wireless throttles available that work with our speed controllers. I can go ahead and make a kit for your project. I would just need to know which throttle you would like to use?
Please include the THR-40 throttle. Thank you.
If you can get me a wheel either 10 or 11 inch and a sprocket that would be close to the 44 tooth. It can have a faster speed than the 3.5 mph because of the thumb throttle, I can control the speed.. I would like to make this as simple as possible. Thank you!
