FF if you don't mind me asking, how are you going to charge the batteries? Are you hoping they'll have enough in them to last a days worth of sawing?
Just an ole farm boy takin one day at a time.

Right now I have two lawn tractor batteries in it. Running 24V. After asking about how long batteries last, I got a answer from Pineywoods. He pointed out that people that use power wheel chairs get about two days before having to charge the batteries. I will be ordering real power chair batteries off ebay. Seeing sets for $130, shipped. So, I think the batteries will last a long day sawing. If by chance I lost power, I can easy disconnect the rope and just push the head. That is the good point of using rope instead of a chain. ;D I did order a new feed control that member KB is using. I will be taking out one of the motors and the controls I have now and redoing my power feed. I will be dropping back down to 12V then. These motors will run on 12V. The second motor then will be added to raise and lower the saw head in the future. ;D

The power chair that I got had two 24V chargers that came with it. ;D One was a onboard charger and one was a big mother. ;D

When I add a power toe board, that will be ran by a winch. I will have to add a third battery. My plans are to mound both in between the trailer frame and tongue of the trailer. That winch or a second one will be running a log turner too! ;D

Other plans in the future are to add manual back stops that can be raise or lower like WM manual mills. ;D

It's all about trying to speed up sawing and making things easy on me at this point. ;D
