Default duratoy conveyor

I have seen a video some where for this conveyor, but do you think I can find it again? Some one has made it r/c controlled.
Any help in finding it would be great.

I bought mine off ebay a couple months ago. But you can get one from DHS Diecast. I haven't finished converting mine completely to motor drive and possibly remote yet.
http://www.dhsdiecast.com/shop/produ...roduct_id=6031

Here's a picture of mine Stepside took, but you can't see the motor setup. The gearmotor I had laying around turned the wrong direction so I added two spur gears to reverse direction but the torque made the thin steel on the Sandmaster flex popping the teeth over one another. I'm going to get a DC motor next to try with direct drive through a Lovejoy jaw coupling.

On mine I have a 12v windshield wiper motor you can switch direction and they have plenty of torque.to power it I use a 12v power supply mounted on the hopper that way if needed you could put power to a trackhoe or anything12v operated.I haven't got the door ex operating but I have ideas on that

i dont have any pics but i will try to get some .on the drive i took a bushing the same size as the turn crank and threaded the same thread as the wndshield wiper motor.when you run it backwards,which is the direction the conveyor needs to run it will tighten up on motor shaft.i used the mount plate for the motor and put holes on plate from the turn crank support to hold the motor

Here are pics of my Duratoy Conveyor Conversion:
















Here's the shopping list!

www.servocity.com

Dayton gear motor - 25 rpm model -part #2L010
http://www.servocity.com/html/25_rpm...gearmotor.html

also get a 3/8 x 5/16 universal joint to connect motor to conveyor shaft - part # COXA1-8:
http://www.servocity.com/html/universal_joints.html

If you need a 12v power supply, I found a great resource to get one for $11 !!!  and it puts out 5 amps! 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/AC-Adapter-P...item4ab3776482

that is exactly what I used for mine. The only other things I did to it was had some sheet metal bent to raise up the hopper and I cut a 2x6 to size to raise up the lower hopper.  I think I also got 10-32 bolts 1.5" long to mount the motor to the hopper.

Hey Neil have you purchased any of these belts from this supplier before?
RcGUYFARMS great video I see you have a motor on the shute how do you time it to only open then stop when fully open? And the same for closing?
Thanks Paul

It's not timed at all, I operate it via rc. the belt and door motors are off one rc channel thru a dual e-swtich. The switch is setup to be momentary for the door and continuous for the belt. A dual e-switch can run two motor at the same time going only one direction. I use a 3 position switch on the radio to control both motors on one rc channel. Flip the transmitter switch up and belt run until I move the switch to center and back up. Flip the transmitter switch down and the door motor will run. It will run as long as the switch is in the down position. For electronics I have a 12v dc power supply, receiver, dual e-swtich and 5v regulator on the conveyor. I used the same motor as rob to run the belt and 20 rpm 12v from servo city to run the door. The black wheel on door motor is 3" precision wheel from servo city with a set screw hub holding it to the motor. I made the black angle piece holding the door motor in place. If u have any questions feel free to ask.

Great pictures and detail, rcguyfarms this was the video i was thinking of.
When we receive our units I will measure the belt lenght unless told before by one of the owners who have one. Then will contact that site Neil and get a price from them. I wanted to make a stronger version of the Bruder conveyors I have so this may be the solution for the belt.

All parts from servocity are now ordered so should get them in 10days or so. The conveyors should ship tomorrow.
Thanks everyone for your help I will post some pics when it comes together.
