Description:

This is our 6WD Remote Controlled Snow Plow robot, a powerful and versatile platform with a mounted ATV snow plow. The plow is raised and lowered using a linear actuator and the angle is manually adjustable. It can drive up steep slopes and climb curbs with ease. The chassis is a rigid gusseted 3/16" thick aluminum frame. The plow is also removable so you can use the robot for other purposes such as hauling/towing material and equipment.

The drive motors are powerful wheelchair motors, which chain drive the wheel axles with a 10:18 gear reduction. The three wheels on either side are chain coupled, giving the robot 6WD. The wheels are mounted on 0.75" OD solid steel axles, each of which is supported by two heavy-duty pillow block bearings. The robot uses differential steering (movement is based on two separately driven wheels placed on either side of the robot body). It can thus change its direction by varying the relative rate of rotation of its wheels and "pivot turn" in place. See our ATR page for more details about our All Terrain Robots.
