So I bought the 110kg servo that Stein had posted on ebay. Now the waiting game to receive it. **** shipping quote of dec 12 to jan 22. I hate waiting for that boat. Thanks again for the info. I may ask a few questions as to how to hook it up.

Sure, that's super easy. It has a standard servo lead. Just connect that to your receiver as normal. It also has a 12V power (red/black) and you just connect these directly to your 3S battery.

Ok so not much happened this short set of days off that I have. My band saw blade didn't want to cut metal anymore. So I'm at a bit of a stand still till I get a new blade. Hope next time I'm home I'll get the swivel done, get it all welded, and start the dump box.

Bummer! Sorry to hear you have to get a new blade. I think those things are spendy, aren't they?

I don't think it'll be too bad. Needs to be fixed so it is what it is I guess.

Ok got a little bit done not near as much as I'd like but life and a new dozer is taking me away from the project. Got out there today and did some things. Started on the dump box after welding up the frame front and rear. Wow I haven't welded anything in some time and it showed. I did the box in 22 gauge steel and I think I'm gonna do a Skelton type frame to give it some extra strength. Also have some mounting place to the rams for lift. Still waiting for the boat to get here with my steering servo motor thing from China. On to picks

Cool build, good idea for the drive motors. Good info here too on the board for controlling servos for a drive setup.

Ok so I think I'm gonna scratch the 22 gauge dump box and build it out if 16 gauge and not have the seam. Take a little longer with vending and measuring but I think it'll be worth it.

Ok a long over due update after fighting with my band saw going threw blades like lube on a porn shoot I broke down and with a early birthday gift from my wife bought a plasma cutter. I got the box cut out of 16 gauge steel and bent and tacked together. I am hoping tonight I can get my swivel mount cut out and fitted then off to getting the steering motor servo mounted. I did not realise how big it is. takes alot of room but will be worth it. I have some ideas as to how I'm gonna mount the rams I think under the box will work.

Great job your doing,

You may find your geared motors a little on the slow side though at 25rpm

I did the whole self centering thing on my JD 9530 build: JD 9530 build thread

Pretty sure I used 80rpm motors on that (for the drive that is, cant remember what I used for the steering)

ya not sure on the speed. I asked Andy on his adt build and he said he used 30 rpm so we shall see. if not they can be used for somthing else I'm sure.

Your project is shaping up good Evan

My B50 has 110rpm motor output with 120mm diameter tires, it's less than walking speed. About 480 sized motors with 100:1 planetary on 3s.

Post a picture of it. Maybe it is of the type that has a selector for the control signal, and you need to set it to PWM or Servo.
