    Yeah I did think about that but from the front it shouldn't be too bad as it that plow is planned to be 6mm Hardox. i did make some designs which did protect the wheels but they added complexty and looked plumb ugly =P

    Thanks for the Link, do they have any information about how much they weigh as i cannot find it unless i'm being a muppet and it's right in front of us.

    They don't list the weight, but if you can make them in cad you can roughly estimate them I guess.

    planning to do some more work on the bot this afternoon but spent a bit of this morning working on REC model for sketchup. pretty confendent it accurate.

    you can find it on the 3d warehouse or a dropbox I am planning to set up.

    Done some work on the bot, mounted the moters to the sides and base plate and did some test driving.




    (crowbar is for ballast)

    just need to do a load of fab work on the mounting blocks and we are not too far from a functional bot.

    well I missed my target, damn flu and wet weather, gotten some bits done just need to bolt stuff together really. So, in the meantime I got my head around Fusion 360 and copied Blacksmith across from Sketchup.

    So, as I have copied into 360 I thought I make some improvements from problems I have noted thus far. I standardised the thickness of HDPE and I also made it a tad longer, so I could move the drive motors back, move the battery to behind the front brace as well as most of electronics, this will hopefully keep the nose down and improve handling.

    Also, have had a little idea of using magnetic limit switches with an Arduino or something in the axe mechanism to act as end stops which allows me to us a switch on my transmitter making driving the bot easier.

    But I first need to finish this oneā€¦
