Hi, all I am kind of new to all this.
I am looking for an electric DC car motor 70Kw 96 - 144V, preferably for a reasonable price.
Anybody can suggest me a good Chinese/Asian souse?
Thanks

With a name like that I expected NZ!
And I was going to tell you about the Guy in Dunedin with a pile of motors he is selling for $200 each

Look up forklift repair places near you and VISIT them with some folding money

You want a 9 inch or 11 inch motor from a scrapped forklift

Don't you mean "smaller"?
My Hitachi forklift motor beats all of those - except the liquid cooling

A good forklift motor will beat those specs find a good forklift salvage yard and make an offer

I have a Netgain WarP9 that would easily fit those specs, except for the liquid cooling. It has just 30 hours run time (broken in) and I'd like a new home for it. Asking $1500, but I'm here in the middle U.S. so shipping may be pricey.

OK don't understand that
To prevent bots from spamming members, new members cannot receive private messages from other members until they have posted, I forget 10-15 times I think.

So Duncan can't send you a message yet until you've posted more.

But if you feel comfortable sharing your email address (or if he feels like googling as he has), he can find you that way.

Kevin has had 18 posts so he should be able to see the PM I sent him with Graham's phone number - not Graham's email as I don't know it
