repurposed 444

Post by voltswagon » Sun Jan 10, 2021 11:03 pm

Hi all,

Several years ago, I was inspired by a pic of a 444 in a local (Maine)sell/swap publication. Thanks to this forum, I was able to locate a chassis and misc. parts to get me started. since the project is beginning to take shape, I thought perhaps some of you would be interested.

Think electric wheel chair for motors and controls. A 24v, 2Kw lithium battery will provide the juice. Controls will be hardwired on a long pigtail. With a 3' x 5' flat platform on top, it should be able to haul fire wood and and maple sap.........at walking speed thru the woods. I'll post more pics as work progresses.

Of course, this is totally untested but fairly inexpensive. And something to do during the virus pandemic.

:D
