This is a completely custom 6WD enclosed robot that uses 6 driven 10 inch tires. We have included everything to make it ready to run including batteries, controllers, chargers, etc. We have also discounted this robot by over $1000.
The robot is built for speed. It runs using 4 IG52-04 136 RPM Gear motors with a 1:1 ratio motor to axle ratio. The axles are beefy 5/8" diameter high tensile steel shafts and are chain driven using heavy duty #35 chain and sprockets. Each axle is supported by two 5/8" ball bearings. The middle axle/wheel is coupled with the front axle/wheel on one side and the rear axle/wheel on the other side. The robot travels at 440 fpm (5 mph) and has enough power left over for making pivot turns on carpet or grass. The robot with its current gear ratio can handle another 10-20lbs and still be capable of pivot turns in grass and on carpet. If more weight is desired, the gear ratio should be changed for more power. See the video below.

This robot is built and ready to go! This is a big heavy robot, we will build a crate to ship it in once ordered. Please allow 2-4 days for packaging/crating prior to shipment. We have included a RC controller with it, but it could be replaced with a microcontroller or a larger channel radio for pan and tilt camera system, etc.
Please contact us if you need this robot customized. This is a custom robot. Its size is 23.5" wide and 40.5" long (wheel to wheel edge) and has 3" of ground clearance. The total weight of the assembled robot with batteries, wheels, etc is 103 lbs. The video below shows how well this robot handles most terrains and obstacles.
