Large Motor

Need to accelerate 550 pounds to 1 FPM.

Am interested in using 4" or 6" wheels that have a good grip. But, a different size would probably be fine.

Any suggestions on a motor?

Need a motor controller also.

Am using RPi 3.



The scale of your project sounds much larger than any of our motors can handle. With that kind of weight and scale, you might consider finding a large wheelchair or electric scooter motor. You might find our Force and Torque blog post helpful for determining what kind of torque your motor will need. Once you find a suitable motor, you can then go about finding an appropriate controller for that motor.
