Me like. Like its predecessor using a low power Dewalt cordless drill,
this one rocks. Now that Dewalt makes 9 amp hour batteries we are
talking some serious distance. I think it's better than a hub moter with
its conglomerate of peripherals. Throttle control is a cheep Revo
shifter with the latching mechanism removed. Simple as pie. It requires
a freewheeling pedal hub (like on drift trikes) and a method for
attaching the drill to the freewheeling pedal hub axle.
That one is unfinished, but gives the general idea.
(let me know if you have trouble viewing, will provide pictures apart
My 5 amp hour batteries are plenty for now. A round trip to the local
megastore easily on one battery (no spares). I just got caught in a
rainstorm coming back from buying some groceries. Put a grocery bag over
the drill and its battery, tied tightly, and rode through the downpour.
