Small update on the Euc.

I didn’t have much time lately for a variety of reasons, including a bad cold that kept on coming back.
But I managed to get the drive shafts done. I installed 2 temporary gear motors and that gave me the opportunity to test the truck and worked out some problems in the drive axles.

Given that the rear axles are not driven off a common drive, how are you going to match the axle speeds?

This is a temporary setup. It will have one motor with a 4-speed gearbox.

I did some work on the Euc. I installed a Mabuchi 555 12V DC Motor, which seems to have sufficient power for this truck. And I built a temporary reduction box, so that I can drive it around and get a sense of the speeds. later I will build the final gearbox.

I tested the Euc in the dirt and took some videos:

I would have given up the "left one" to be as talented as you. That is so fantastic. Keep up the pictures and content for us. CAW

I tried a simple mechanism for the tipping. It is basically a geared motor with a small winch pulling a lever, which does the tipping. This is the first try and I managed to lift it with a 11 lbs load. Not bad. Now I can work out the details.

Here a video: https://youtu.be/CMy56WsefUk

I had the chance to try it out at the Cabin Fever Expo in Lebanon, PA.

Here a video of the Euc in action:

Not the dump mechanism I was expecting to see, but it's still brilliant engineering. Bravo Kerst!

I have been working on the power-shift transmission. This is an experiment and needed some proper preparation, including calculating ratios, making accurate drawings, etc. Quite the challenge!
The Clark series 6000 is the example.





I omitted the forward/reverse clutches. An electric switch can take care of that and it saves space.



I use leather as clutch material.





The middle shaft on the left is the input shaft and I still need to figure out how to connect that to the motor, an 540 CRAWLER BRUSHED MOTOR 80T.

I am still making all the components and I am not sure if it all will work.

Making the frame demanded a lot of accuracy. My Southbend was up to it! I did a lot of measuring at every stage to make sure things will fit OK.



So far so good. I plan to control the clutches with 2 servos. W'll see how that works out!
