yes. that's one of the motors. connected to a home built controller. arms with rollers. think it's in my pictures. i have been meaning to upload new pictures. just don't have a good image hosting site. they all get deleted quickly.
this is from a few weeks ago.
from the top:
1. a true purple sativa dominant hybrid. fully purple even when it's 100 degrees out. stinks like lemons and oranges. grows very fast. purple hairs and trichomes.
2. animal cookies
3. cherry pie
those pictures are oldish. they are much further along now.
Hey crushing yuba I just wanted to thank you. For this thread. THANK YOU!!!! This year I wanted to expand quite a bit. And you saved me thousands! I planned to build 5 - 20x100 greenys. They are sold for around 3-4k each in my area. I ordered the pro model of the pipe bender from build your own greenhouse.com and sourced the 1 3/8 pipe . Couldn't be happier. The frames are exactly like store bought ones for a small fraction of the price. This year I would like to follow your instructions on the auto dep motors DIY install. as I've only been pulling tarp by hand. If anyone is questioning if this iworks .....it does. Thanks again crushing yuba I mould have never bought those frames because it was just to much from a store. I probably was going to use pvc. But DIY steel bending changed the game by thousands that could be spent on other things like fans and soil.
Humboldt hermit- that's good to hear! those instructions that come with the bender you will get allot out of. I don't use their jigg, but i did read their instructions. some of the way they suggest doing it is wack, but some good. take the best from everyone!
I will be selling controllers and motors on Amazon once the bulk of the trimmers leave. I'll have a couple versions of controllers. Wifi smart controller, dumb controller. solar or 110v ac. this is for roll up sides or black out.
Haven't been able to see the pictures of motor rigging and connections (I checked on the safari browser) also anyway on the solar side what is your battery set up ?
Can you scale the solar/battery to run the entire system hid's and all without needing the diesel ?
thank you , safe harvest and happy holidaze
allot of the pictures are gone. I think there are some of how the motors connect to the pipe still though on the first page. what part would you like to see more of? the black out has telescoping arms. the roll up sides are just like hand cranks on guide rails. just motorized.
My battery set up is pretty big. 2x 24v 800ah 1200lb forklift batteries. my solar system is to run my house, greenhouse, and multiple outdoor gardens. not a small investment. very hard to do without burning some diesel. and it's basically impossible to run hid of solar and battery without diesel. i don't run a whole lot of hid anyway though.
