A 3-1/2″ Gauge electric switcher kit. This unit was inspired by the original full size Mighty Mack yard engine. All metal construction. Chassis fabricated from CNC laser cut 1/4″ plate steel, utilizing an interlocking design and welded together. The shell is a seven piece, 1/4″ wall, cast aluminum kit. A 24 Volt, 100 Watt motor driven by a Dimension Engineering SyRen 10 Amp controller with #25 chain to both axles provides excellent tractive force. Kit arrives with chassis unpainted and RTR. The shell arrives as rough castings, requiring filing, fitting, assemble and painting to your road colors. (radio controlled version pictured)

Fully CNC’d 36″,  3/4″ Scale Wheels.

DSCN1204DSCN1212

Specs: 1018 Steel.

2-1/4″ Tread Diameter x 7/16″ Thick x .312 Axle Bore. IBLS Tread Profile. Once machined, then tumbled and Black Nitride coated. (not black oxide, which will rust and rub off.)

ONLY Sold in sets of 4.

Two options:

Plain steel wheels right off the lathe with no coating @ $55.00 per set + S&H

OR the same steel wheel with Black Nitride Coating. 4 @ $62.00 + S&H (PayPal fees applied if using that service.)

We did our best to keep the price as low as possible. The difference in original price and current price was due to the coating process. Originally black oxide was going to be the finish choice: however, the ease at which the oxide finish could be removed just by rubbing it with a finger was not the kind of quality we wanted to give to our customers. So the Nitride finish was chosen. Black Nitride is the finish of choice for numerous weapons manufactures.

We thank you in advance for understanding.
