Wedico uses 12 volts to rrun their loaders, that will give you the power you need to run your pump at a higher rpm, and give your motors much more power that you need for going into the bank to fill your bucket. Other than that your build is top notch, and will perform great, I love your work, always have, thanks so much for sharing this build with us, allen
Allen,sorry I missed answering you last time around.
In the vid I'm not horse'in er,she has enough power to spin the tires right off the rims in dirt. The pump has the capability to adjust the rpms. I have it turned way down,& it's still a tad to fast.She ran for 20 minutes the other day & didn't show any signs of runnin out of juice. Once she's mechanically completed,I'll see just how long she will run on one charge.
Thanks for the complement!

Hey freddy,

Nice build you got there!

I'm currently trying to build my own tracked loader from scratch using mostly wood, I have a prototype working but it needs alot of tweaking (or should i say alot of re-doing again!) hah! , My main problem is the working mechanics of the arms for the bucket, and bucket tip,i.e getting the right movement etc. I'm using metal geared servos with a screw motion.

How did you get your arms for your bucket? Do you template them? or do you just measure and a case of trial and error?

Jigglepin,it was all luck.Did some measuring,cut a templete out of cardboard to make sure it looked right. Then cut a set out of aluminum.
Well,since it's winter & I won't be playin in the dirt.Might as well make some stuff that I can use now. This year I shovel my walks from inside the house.

& the first test vid.

Thanks for lookin!
I did manage to get a quick vid of her in the dirt before the weather got crappy.
