Those motors are powerful as hell, since those chairs are for pushing fat people around. The whole thing weighs around 100lbs, and they move it around like its nothing. An adult can sit on it and drive around without slowing it.

The design in the pic is bulky, because it was a frame designed to hang the gas mower without modifying it. Now that I've run it a year, I know its pros and cons and will redo the thing for this summer.

People are lazy and will spend copious amounts of money to make anything "easier"

Early test setup here. I changed over to snowblower tires. It will drive straight up the 35 degree slope no problem. With the drive wheels in the back, and front casters, it doesn't like to go sideways. It will, but hard to keep straight. Track drive would be nice, but there aren't a lot of good options for tracks, and the RPM of these motors is a little low.

That is Ghetto fabulous.

I will trade you an awesome mini bike for it.

You can pull it if you want.

I'm also pretty sure you'll still need to push it, it aint gonna push itself.
