So because it's a 3 phase motor it's not going to work at all? Shouldn't a DC motor work with a DC controller?

Its not a DC motor, its an AC motor. Permanent magnet just means it uses magnets instead of electro-magnets. Permanent magent motors can be DC or AC. You're going to need to go with a DC motor, or get a controller that is compatable with that motor.

Fudge. I already have both sitting in the garage. I was told by numerous people they'd be a good pair. This really sucks. Now I have to get rid of either the controller or motor.

With that alltrax 7245, which 73v motor would you guys recommend? Maybe I can trade it or return it to the place I got it from.

DC motor and controller will be more affordable, I would try to ebay the PMAC motor (or see if your supplier can exchange it).

Which DC motor would you recommend in the 72v range? I'm going to see if I can exchange it. Even though I got it about 6 months ago :-/

I see the ME1003 bundled with your controller, they are like $700 shipped on ebay, reasonably similiar power ratings.

A suitable kelly controller for your PMAC is about $1000.

I see your PMAC motor sold (new) for like $820 on fleabay.

oops, I lied, this *should* work with your PMAC and is $700, but you should be doing more homework and googling for opinions on part nubmbers and motor/controller (and battery) combinations. The cost between DC and AC might not be as bad as I thought these days.

So the me0913 will work? That's why I'm so confused. I've done research and gotten lots of opinions and everyone says it'll work.

Specs say it works on DC
