There's a new "Advanced DC FB1-4001A, 28.5 HP, 72 - 144 VDC" motor for sale locally. I'm currently unemployed and don't know if I should swing this deal. He's asking just under $1000 for it. Would it be fairly quick and easy to resell it if I needed to?

Would this be a good motor for my proposed Ranchero EV? The Ranchero is 2400 lb stock, I live in a hilly area, top speed of 60 MPH, range of 35-50 miles using FLA batteries.

Thanks,
Kurt

The motor would be fine, but you will have a difficult time making the upper end of that range at 60 mph with fla batteries. The drag force on the Ranchero will be fairly large at that speed.
