    they also have a 200A version with the same foot print.
    which I'll most likely use when both sabertooth 2x60's are in use.

    when I made the motor mount brackets, I made all four at same time.
    but, not sure if I'll get all four installed this season(I'm slow).

    I'm going to test lifting the bucket while still just bolted together, before I take it back
    to the welder. the bucket with dump motor and brackets is only 160lb.

    "only"

    "only"
    Lucky for me I ordered a manufactured steel bucket(80lb) from Home Depot, if I made it,
    chances are it would weigh 300lb.(like the lifting frame I'm working on)

    there is lots of aluminium in the stock rack at work, but it's for current jobs, there's lots
    of steel that is left over from past jobs that I can use for free(free is good, but very heavy)

    with the bucket lift installed on the mule I shouldn't have to add any sand bags for weight
    to get traction.

    Free material is best material!
    (Or, as I prefer to think of it: Made of pure scrapbinium!)

  6. Re: More Mule then Rover?

    I should have the bucket mounted to the lift soon

    plan A is to use one 1000W motor for lifting and one for dumping.

    plan B is to use two 1000W motors for lifting and one for dumping.

    the lift works as envisioned, 5 sec. for full lift height, tested lifting 290lb, it lifted
    it with no measurable slow down.(Sweet!) the braking system worked perfect also.

    everything very smooth, and very quiet.

    now for the dumping system.

    also moved the bucket out 2" to give me room to mount the dump
    motor under the bucket support arm(so it doesn't block camera view) .
