Golly, sorry. Without a working picture, and all the posts talking about direct drive, that seemed like what the product was.
Ok, so now that I understand the proposal, I have a different critique.
1. Why buy two controllers? Where is the advantage in that? (unless they are very unreliable).
2. 190ftlbs is still awfully weak in today's market and ESPECIALLY considering...
3. You can buy 3x the motor for 2/3 the price elsewhere.
I just don't see any advantage to low-voltage AC. High-voltage, yes... IF the price comes down to reasonable ($5-7,000 for motor and controller).
