Amberwolf, no your news till today, sad to hear the motor in your hand was cooked
Actually, it's not thermally cooked to death yet, but I have overheated it twice to the point the halls stopped working for a while. I may have damaged a hall this last time, but not sure since I haven't tested it yet, as I have to repair or replace the clutch that is the actual failure--it cracked and thus doesn't transmit any power. A hose clamp around it fixed it long enough to get me home.
So that motor, the 36V original I got from Dogman, has actually survived a lot of abuse quite well--much better than some other motors people have discussed here on ES.
Even the two 48V versions of that motor that Dogman also had that I now have, survived severe overheating with only desoldering damage! (though the windings are rather dark, they still work!). (I'll add the link to the post about that repair here as soon as I type it up. )
So, so far the only things actually failed on any of those three motors, each abused by two of us, are the clutch broken on th 36V and the overheating of the two 48V units that caused solder to melt and run, shorting hall power on one, and resistors connecting the halls to signal wires to fall off on the other. I'd say that's pretty good.
So basically I'd give Fusin motors two thumbs up so far.
But do you believe I got eamils weeks ago from US saying they have been using our motor for 3 years and it is still working fine, another one said he needs a gear to replace the broken gear then will work again
have been over 3 years....
Yes; I think I am the one that referred the second person to you for that.
We have also been selling out 2nd motor in Europe for 2 years and not yet have complaints on the motor. European people is much gentle, than American people, maybe.
Probably, since the rules there are much more power-restrictive.
Well for your tricycle you might not use this rear wheel motor but a front wheel motor, same powered but just for front wheel drive.
If you are referring to me, I don't (yet) have a tricycle, though I do have plans to use two of the older Fusin motors on a trike, one in the right (undriven by pedal chain) wheel, and one not laced in a wheel but rather used as a middrive to run the other wheel thru the pedal chain system. If I ever get time to get around to that.
For CrazyBike2 or DayGlo Avenger, I'd rather use a rear wheel, based on performance so far with a different motor.
However our another big motor but front wheel drive is waiting for your cooking, we equip it with a 20A controller and 3 speeds setup. The higher current the controller has, the easier your cooking will be
Yeah, I know.
Personally I prefer the rear motors, as I can easily make up a front fork that can hold one but it's harder to make a front fit on a rear triangle, when I want to experiment with different configurations for whatever reason.
