I am in the process of building a power dolly to move my Outrage 20 into its garage without using my truck. There is not enough room for the trailer and truck. I have seen a lot of 12volt deigns. My preference is to make mine with a 110v a/c motor and an extension card. Can anyone recommend an appropriate AC motor and point me to a wiring diagram? I need to wire it for forward and reverse...

Thanks

Stephen

A Dayton reversing switch handles my 1/2hp 110v davit motor. Maybe you could include a davit motor and its belt driven gearing as an already made solution.
Wiring diagram comes with the switch or is online.
I have seen similar systems pull small planes into a hanger.

The electric motor on my Power Caster III is a Dayton item. If you want I can get you the motor info Monday afternoon.
Or, you can check ebay. There have been several on the site over the last month or so, some had pictures of the motor's label.

conch is correct, get one that has/can run in both directions. winch set up is something to look at... After that its just a matter of putting the proper pulley sizes on the drive wheel and the motor. You need a small one on the motor and a larger one on the axle (wheels)

The model information on the Dayton motor would be very helpful.
