Re: Electric Quad-wheel Fatbike wheelchair

... what I'm really curious about, is how people think a disabled person would get along with one of those on the playa. It's stable. Has the range, and redundancy to get about & explore BRC, and then get back to camp. In an extreme case, an umbrella or roof may catch wind and blow it over? Could it...

Re: Electric Quad-wheel Fatbike wheelchair

Canoe, I'm surprised at you. Why are you asking instead of looking it up? the DMV, (department of mutant vehicles), isn't hidden. The short answer is YES. If it is a motorized 4 wheel vehicle You need to apply for a permit for the event. If you are disabled and have adequate proof, you get to use i...

Re: Electric Quad-wheel Fatbike wheelchair

Canoe. It really is to everyones advantage at the event to play by the rules. Its not complicated. If you are genuinely disabled, get your vehicle permit. If not, make it art and apply for the license. Able bodied participants can create a pleasing 4 wheeler. I agree for able bodied participants. A...

Re: Electric Quad-wheel Fatbike wheelchair

Because laws, in this case disability laws, usually take precedence? Does DMV or BLM say that wheelchairs need to be registered in BRC? If that is someone's wheelchair, what does Nevada law say.

Re: Electric Quad-wheel Fatbike wheelchair

Could depend. E-bike is defined at max three wheels. Wheelchairs have four wheels. Is this a four-wheeled e-bike (a vehicle), or a wheelchair with large wheels made from e-bike parts? If someone who needs a wheelchair is in it, under the law I'd expect it to be treated as a wheelchair. If I was in i...

Electric Quad-wheel Fatbike wheelchair

This off road wheel chair goes 20 miles per hour, and should have a range of 20-30 miles. It cost me about $3,000usd (mostly the price of the bikes). About 50 dollars worth of metal for the seat, and about 3 full days to design and assemble the whole wheelchair. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3_m...

... Oh well, we are looking for less expensive options to anchor our art piece but will probably bite the bullet and get the penetrator anchors.
Make sure you consider: holding it up/down, wind loads, climbing loads.
You're not the first to anchor an art piece. See what others did.

Yup
Looks like it would be more than a little bendy (breaky) under a heavy load.
A long bare shank means the threads disturb the soil going in but don't leave threads grabbing it for much of the length.
But might work well in some soils.
