Found this on a different forum. Does anyone have additional information on this truck? The
website on the front http://www.stierva.ch.vu/ . searching "Elektro Haflinger" on their site does not bring up anything.

Take care.

A few years back (2008-2009), I had looked into converting a Haflinger to electric using the PMG132 motor.

http://www.robotmarketplace.com/product ... MG132.html

The challenge in to build a shaft mounted flange that would exactly mimic the front of the Haflinger motor's crankshaft front face. I wanted to use the standard flywheel/clutch/pilot bearing orientation so the electric motor would slip in place on the transmission with ZERO modification. The crankshaft proxy flange would obviously move the electric motor more rearward but, at 25#, it is still far less than the original engine.

Given the current price for a replacement original motor, an electric option becomes a great deal more attractive.

It would be interesting to learn more details about the truck in the videos.

Take care.

The batteries are what kill any electric conversion.... They are either too expensive, too heavy or don't provide enough running time.

If all you ever wanted from an electric Haf was ten minutes to go through a Trials route and you had a suitable generator to charge the batteries up in between runs, it might be a worth while conversion.

More than a decade ago, an electric vehicle group out of Port Townsend, Washington converted a Series Land rover and demonstrated its capabilities at Moab, Utah. As I remember, they towed a small trailer with a Genset and could recharge on the go as needed to extend range or rely solely on the on board batteries to traverse trailer-unfriendly terrain. Where there is a will (and enough time, effort and money), there is a way.

Our needs would be focused on a commute for a few miles with power recharge available at each destination or use around the farm. For activities such as a treffen, where distance traveled is greater, the idea of towing a small trailer with generator and additional batteries is not unreasonable.

Take care.

Maybe a variation of the system being used in the Tuk Tuks. The vehicles are not all that much smaller than a Haffie.

This thread and links found me this:-

The demountable camper back would fit straight on a Haflinger with little or no "fudging" to make it work. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any more info on it as yet.

Why would you want that - you have your Green House - just as good :D

Green house frame is made from 15mm 0.3mm wall thickness tubing and cover is thin plastic which will no doubt rip at the first bramble it sees!

It did the job of keeping things dry and on the platform during the trip, but it was never going to be a permanent addition on the back of Lurch.

At some point I will get a set of hoops for the back.
