    The biggest problem with these was the electrical controls, think how often you see lawn equipment sitting outside -- the 1970 tech didn't take kindly to that. A clever guy could swap in modern more efficient and reliable controls.

    The steel parts are pretty generic I believe, I want to say that the one I had was a gear manual trans axle with a big electric motor powering it, been 20 years or more, don't quite remember. These frequently have rust issues from the batteries like many electric vehicles. You have probably wasted $300 on other silly stuff -- go get it!! :thumbsup:

    It really doesn't have any value. The line of peeps that could make this work is very short (actually non existent). I bet you offer $50 and they would be happy as shit!

    My Centramatics came in today. I told them I have 5/8” studs. Guess they forgot. Quick drill of 40 holes and installed them.

    Tomorrow I’ll put the other set on the D-max.

    I'm getting jealous - all I got is an Ariens snow blower and a 7500 watt portable generator to putz around with. Blower is getting ready for summer storage and the generator is getting converted to tri-fuel very shortly! :yes:

    Neat concept. Balance as the tire changes and wears. Let us know how they do.

    I have a couple friends that use them with really good results and need to do something. I’m on my 3rd set of tires at 64k miles and the current set are about gone.

    We just changed our tractor/trailer fleet at work over to centramatics because of big improvements in tire wear compared to the equal we were running for years before.

    Is the the correct channel to talk about weed whackers, tillers and chipper shredders?

    I must put a rave out for this battery:

    https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CMY2C28/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8

    But let me start by saying this is the best weed whacker I ever bought: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DSG6YM1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8

    Strong, not TOO heavy, ready to go, no fuel...........charges really fast. BUTTTTT the supplied 2Ah battery just doesn't last all that long on a decent size property if you are using is HARD. So I shopped for batteries and was not shocked how expensive the Greenworks Pro 80V batteries are, I was ready...........so I shopped aftermarket with great trepidation. Tons of junk out there and I had TERRIBLE experience with some aftermarket DeWalt 20V batteries. I chose the 3Ah one above based on reviews and it works GREAT. Easily lasts 1.5X the stock 2Ah and also charges fast so in combo I can just keep whacking. Small brush, trees, brambles.........good stuff
