Re: Lawnmowing: manual and electric powered

The greenworks 80v mower has been doing well. Only complaints are the blade doesn't have a lot of suction and the deck clogs even after widening the side discharge. This is an issue with overgrown wet grasses not normal use. I've been beating the heck out of it, probably have done over 400 lawns wit...

Battery in series with charger?

Okay this may seem odd, but I want to know if there is any reason this won't work. I have a large 50ah 68v battery that is on my emoto which rarely gets ridden. It is trickle charged by my solar panel. I do have numerous small 72v batteries that I need to charge on a daily basis (for my lawn mowing ...

Does anyone know about the 1.5ah packs? They are only $10. Seems too cheap?

Re: Kawasaki KE100 conversion

I would say no, due to the horrible brakes and lacking suspension. But if you just want a cheap light donor and you don't weigh much, it can work.

Thanks BTW

Re: Kawasaki KE100 conversion

Well I had to get a car for work and with that, it makes less sense to own a motorcycle too. I'm looking to find someone who is interested in either the whole complete bike, or bike minus battery, or bike minus battery/motor/controller. I may use the battery to make my Prius a plug in. I would prefe...

Re: New 80 volt push mowers

The string trimmer price has dropped to new lows. I couldn't resist, bought another with battery and charger for $109! That's cheaper than buying just the battery. I think I will make an ultralight mower with in, extend the line to 20" cut, fab a little deck with wheels.

Re: New 80 volt push mowers

It took about 5 days to get my order. 6 weeks was because ML ordered when it was back-ordered. One thing I would like for the mower is a real mulching blade with teeth. It needs more suction to pull leaves out of grass. I know that will take more power, so they did not venture into such a blade for ...

SOLD MXUS 3000 hub Austin TX

SOLD 5 turn. I bought it in fall of '14. I think it's V1, it was the first one available to ES. Ridden 1 mile. It's a shame I never used it, but it's been sitting too long so I am looking to sell. I drilled spoke holes for 12g as the stock were too big. There is another set of holes on one side that...

Re: New 80 volt push mowers

My question is what are the pos and neg in the hall wires. I think I read that the mower spins at 2800rpm (high) Yeah I got my motor and parts the other day. The motor looks really good for a mid-drive setup and is only 5lbs. The only question is which hall wires are which? Will have to open up the ...

Re: New 80 volt push mowers

The price on the 80v Greenworks string trimmer (motor is in the head, not attachment capable) with 2ah battery and charger has dropped to $154. I decided to buy it since I think it will be quieter, less vibration and lighter than the attachment capable one I recently bought. And i wanted another bat...

Re: New 80 volt push mowers

Well the mower did good. I had some thick grass and it never seemed to bog down. It appears to have two levels of power, but I could definitely be wrong. The first level is the standard low power for easy grass. Then it kicks up for thicker grass. I saw as high as 22amps draw on my battery. I used 5...

Yeh I set up alerts on camel after you posted about it here. I would like to find a dirt cheap battery that is bad and make a custom pack out of it. Since this 80v system is so new, not much available. I have alerts set on eBay too. I bought the attachment capable trimmer on eBay from CPO outlets. I...
