EV-Blue, in Walton Kansas, has bee doing conversions for many years. Wayne Alexander has been considered a pioneer, by many, in the field of electric vehicle conversions. He regularly uses our products in his conversions to products some very excellent builds. He had this to say about the build:
This tug is an American Coleman, there out of business now. I used:
- a Netgain WarP 11 motor
- Soliton 1 controller
- 24 x 6 volt lead /acid batteries
I made the adaptor plate and coupler for the allison transmission. The transfer case for 4×4 drive is 3:1 in low the front and rear differentials are 6.5:1 ratio, it pulls real easy. The truck has hydraulic steering and brakes, so I had to make a belt drive for the Hydraulic pump, and the alternator.
