This motor has a PM stator. Palmtree, pull off the red/orange cover(if that's what it is) on the input for the transmission. There could be a opening to accept a splined or keyed shaft. This is what you would have to fit the motor shaft into for a direct drive.I googled etek, the only stuff that popped up looked like Motenergy. Either way, I have two ME1004 motors in similar implements, one in a Husqvarna riding mower. The main thing about it is that it's designed to put out some 3000RPM at 48V, it would be perfect. It has a PM rotor, so it is indeed quite a bit lighter than a forklift motor, but the weight can easily be added if necessary.
