Re: (ET) Powered cart
Jeff, I think a powered trailer is absolutely brilliant. As
for loosing steering, why not just put some weights on the front. The Elec
Trak weight box should slide right into the front like it does to the

One of my planned
uses for my E15 (if I ever finish it) is to use it to haul cordwood out my
woods and I'm wondering how the traction will be. My only experience is
pulling a 4x8 trailer full of cordwood on a rutted, snowy dirt road and when
the trailer got hung up the front of the tractor would lift, I should have had
the snowblower on there as a counter weight. But what about if it was
Since it appears that a
locking diff is not an option I had 2 ideas. I have several spare transaxles
and a couple extra drive motors. the transaxles have the brakes still on them.
Since I'll have an Alltrax with a
dash pot, what about going with cutting brakes, that is a brake assembly on
each axle, with a pedal on each side. That would give you the steering effect
and you could also brake a wheel that has lost traction?
The other idea is even more unlikely for me to
ever do with my lack of time and mechanical skill, but... seems like it would
solve both traction and the tractor nose coming up. What about a powered
trailer? If I put a motor and transaxle under a trailer would I just fry my
Alltrax if I tried to feed both motors from the one controller?
The pushers I've seen in the past are
just for pushing
and don't seem to have an issue with a normal single
point trailer ball hookup.
