you didn't mention prices..

however a cheap BRuSHED setup is the Tom hunt 1500watt belt drive with an second hand astro cobalt 90 strapped in.

or the dual drive with the de-walts.

Orgerewise > 1Kw motors are not cheap.

Try Steve Neus motors, Max Cim, big Astro or teh big AXI.

I believe Lehner and Plettenburg also have offerings. NONE are cheap.

Lipo batteries themselves are likley to be at least $500 for 1.5KW.


You probably need to budget as much again for a motor (and gearbox) never mind the speed cointrols..
