DESIGN DETAILS [MAR 2005]


Lifter motor guard & lifter base. Note recessed power switches & LED power indicator lights


Lifter also has urethane bump stops at bottom to avoid tweaking the floorpan. Holes drilled into back wall for cooling fan airflow


One charging jack was installed in the small hole just fore of the left rear gearbox


The other charging jack & the antenna


Disko Inferno is so thin that the 2" diameter motors stuck out & needed protective covers!

     

CONSTRUCTION [MAY 2004-MAR 2005]


SolidWorks CAD model with hidden lines dimmed. Note pointed tapers on teeth that didn't end up in the final build

CAD model with hidden lines shown--note all the batteries!
