Thread: More Mule then Rover?

  1. #41

    Re: More Mule then Rover?

    With the 18" wheels the mule could move 20mph in a runaway condition(like loss of feedback)
    somewhere there should be a rule written that you should not let your Mule run faster then you
    can. so I geared it down to 7mph max.

    through test I found one rear caster to be unreliable, testing two now but see me replacing the
    casters completely with a rear drive wheel

    If that is spoken from experience then I think we need to hear more.

    The mule has been very well behaved so far, while there has been a few software oops in the
    beginning, each time they happened I immediately checked to see if any seen it(no one did). Maybe
    that should also be a rule, if no one seen it, it didn't happen.

    The reason I'm more concerned now is I'm in the house while the Mule is outside plowing snow, before
    I'm standing next to the Mule ready to hit the E-Stop if theres a problem.

    Video!
    As soon as we get some snow to plow I'l get some footage.

    My lover knows how much I'm been looking forward to some snow, and yesterday as I was
    driving to chicago, it did start to snow(flurries) at home, so she calls me telling me the Mule
    is outside yelling my name and watching the snow come down. guess she had to rub it in
    that we were getting snow but I couldn't be there. by the time I got home the snow was all
    gone.

    There comes a time in every young Mule's life when it needs to man-up(wear chains)

    Nice! A salt spreader on the back may be helpful as well. Great work!

    I talked to my mom about this but she said salt hurts her dog's paws
    maybe sand spreader?

    That is really cool! Now you just need a wireless camera on the front so you can plow the drive way from the comfort of the living room couch! Your making me wish it snowed more where I live!
