Default All Terrain Track Chair part 8 of final assembly

This has been a long term project and now the end is nearing!
It finally moves under its own power, and just a "few" items left.

It’s an off-road powered vechicle for a person in a wheelchair.

He has spent a lot of time designing and building this. Very cool indeed.

Thanks for the compliments guys!

It's been a long journey to get to this point.

Here's a link to more details about the project with specs and description.
http://kustomsbykent.com/projects/al...ck-chair-attc/

The client is paralyzed from the armpits down, and not much muscle strength in his arms, and limited hand/finger function, so controls are highly customized to fit his needs.

Wow! What an awesome project! Are you a professional engineer by schooling, or self-taught?

I'm impressed. That is a beautiful job you have done. I'm sure there were moments of "why did I get myself into this" but you made it work well.
I have to ask why the winch is on the side of the machine?

I'd like to have a stripped down version just to get around rough areas. I don't need the PTO (the chain drive there looked a bit like a weak link), and no need for a lot of the finer controls......just a higher clearance & rubber tracks for exploring....basically a fun machine.

Thanks!

Yes, mechanical engineering... my day job is leading a group of engineers in design & development.

I'm a proponent of continuous learning, so this has been a great project for expanding my abilities and knowledge, while also helping out a client with a need.
