Tractor build

Post by TravisR »

Hello

I'm looking into building a small four wheel drive tractor with front end loader. I'm currently working on other things that will help aid and build the machine like custom CNC software and low cost CNC plasma machine and I'll be using a CNC milling machine to finish machining the gears.This is just a hobby project with no deadline. I'd like to design the transmission with 3 forward gears and reverse . I'll need to design the differentials for front and rear and some kind of transfer case I think . This is all new to me and it's more of a learning experience any help would be appreciated .

Thanks

Travis

Hello Art

I'm going to try and have a working example of my CNC software for Arduino mega by next week  . What I'd like to do is use M98 subroutines like I had in Mach 3 . I'd like to share it with you Art sometime next week .

  You can always reach me at the support@Gearotic email, I doubt I have time to test the software,
but Id be happy to take a look at it or give any thoughts I have from the source..
