Default RC Tracked Mower

Decided im tired of mowing all the steep ground around my house. I started out by finding a used power chair (free) then ordered a used snowmobile track and cut it in half lengthwise.

The plan is to make 2 independant track sets with a chassis between them that the battery powered mower will attach to.

Started the build by breaking down the power chair


Then made a coupler to attach the motor to the snowmobile drive sprocket
