More Torque Monster motor details...

The forklift was a 36/48v system, but that doesn't mean the motor can't handle MUCH more (in fact it almost certainly can).

Square shaft (haven't measured it). For the other stuff, I'm going to have to defer to Mr. Husted.

I'm going to go over to Ivan's now to pick up the ammeter, and will see if I can wrestle the monster onto the dolly and move it into the garage. (It's been in a tool shed since it came out of the Baker.)

I need to get a bunch of pics of the motor, and see how easy it is to get the end cap off and get a clear view of the innards.
