Hi there.

I've set myself (with friends) out to create a machine similar to the vetruvian gym home fitness machine, just for fun. But one thing i do not know much about is motors.

There aren't much, if any, information about the specs on the inside of this machine, but in short it simulates lifting weights from 0-200lbs.

We've got a setup that sort of works, but the motor we are using is a junk motor that was collecting dust in the workshop, and was only used for the prototype.

Anyone that can help me in the direction of a type of motor that will do the trick?

Thanks in advance

If this is a non-positioning application but variable speed is reqd, , ex-treadmill DC motors may work, they are 2hp -3.5hp.
There are the MC2100 controllers also, one source is T.M.s that often come up locally, Free for Pickup (not working).
