    Default 1.5 running ball lifter

    just ran home built ball lifter for 1.5 hours nonstop. never jammed never failed. thats lifting the balls 48 inches just to test it with a little extra load. a few more minor mods and it should be ready to replicate!
    heres a pic before the up tube was designed and installed

    That's cool!
    How cost effective will they be?

    This is my personal opinion, or of the voices in my head, and are not meant to reflect the opinion of this board.

    What kind of HP does the motor need?
    Or is it all still in testing.

    Looking good, BB!
