Well we may not qualify since our 13 inch GE is in a pulling tractor, but we have a shorter version of that motor installed. We ran it last year one time at 72 volts and wayyyyyyy overgeared and it still drug a 8000 weight transfer sled 150 feet. Torque up the kazoo. We dont expect more then 3500 to 4000 rpm at the expected sagged voltage of 110 to 120 volts and have geared it for.
We are putting the finishing touches on a 170 volt 600 amp Headway battery for this year, will go to 800 amps next year.
We have a adjustible advance set up so we can find what is best (we can go up to 10 degrees).
That motor is half the price I paid for ours and is longer (ours has at least 4 inch less in the frame). It looks like this one might have an aluminium drive end bell, ours is cast iron and HEAVY. Our shorter motor weighs 305 pounds
If we didn't already have one I would be driving to Elgin IL right now to buy this one.
The 9 inch they have for $125.00 is pretty nice as well.
That thing would move an 8000 pound lift truck around at a good clip at 36/48 volts. Just think what it will do with a 3000 pound truck at 144 + volts.
That is a BIG motor, make sure you have the room and suspension to carry it.
