    For my Senior Design Project for Miami University I created a Remote controlled track driven snowblower. I got the inspiration off of this very website and thanks to their very speedy and prompt shipment when I needed parts asap. The customer service and product quality is top notch. I used a Sabertooth dual 60 amp motor controller to control the wheel chair motors to drive the tracks, a Sabertooth dual 12 amp r/c motor controller to control the chute motor, a Battle switches to control the front light bar, and a couple servos to control the throttle and front linear actuator. Thanks to your inspiration and fast shipping speed I was able to make this project happen. Thanks again.

    This project worked out great for my Senior Design Project to finish my Bachelors in Electro-mechanical Engineering.

    Hi John, I am very much interested in doing something similar to my snow blower. Would you mind sharing information regarding the build? I am new to building robots but am fairly technically skilled (I am an engineer at a medical device company) and a quick study. I’d appreciate any help in getting myself started in my new found interest.
