OK short and to the point.
I'm a student on an engineering course and I have to build a robot to go
over a 10 cm step and carry a load (20ish Kg), the total weight is going to be around 40Kg. I have the design (basically like a tank(ish)), but it's
the motor that's the problem.
I thought starter motor but I can't change the direction of them (needs to
go backwards), so I need a two (left track and right track motor) DC motors capable of shifting a fair bit of weight (it has to climb the step with the weight, as well as itself).
So here what I thought, how's about two wheelchair motors, or washing
machine motors or may be from older cars (before say 1980) the dynamo alternators (I think)? I should mansion I have a budget of £120 so second hand would be best!
Please help - also if you know of any places to get these motors (I'm also looking for a pair of Sinclair C5 motors) I'd be most grateful,
