Is 15 hp enough to power 1500 pounds at 5 mph?
Hi I'm Wayne I will help you with this Good Morning Is this on land or water wheels or sledlet me know please
It will power a tire on a wheel of a trackless train. Here is a different way of posing the question:How to build a trackless train and how much horsepower needed to pull 1500 pounds 5 mph. How many 12 volt batteries are needed to create power for the horsepower engine. Thanks! If you need any more info, just ask! (Also, it will be connected to a gear to power a wheel and sit on a thick plywood base.)
If the drawbar force () is measured in pounds-force (lbf) and speed () is measured in miles per hour (mph), then the drawbar power () in horsepower (hp) is:
Example: How much power is needed to pull a drawbar load of 2,025 pounds-force at 5 miles per hour?
Is 15 HP enough to power 1500 pounds at 5 mph? Answer: No. It would require 20 HP.

Hello! Thanks for your information on this subject! It really helped! However, I do have 2 questions: How did you receive the constant 375? And also, I know this is kinda a new question, but how many volts (in 12 volt batteries) will it take to power to 20 hp engine for say 3 hours? Thank you very much!
Hi to answer your Question on the 375 The constant 375 is because 1 hp = 375 lbf•mph.your 2nd question is yes, another question, when you say engine , your talking a electric motor, how many ampsand how many volt motor is itwtolkson41079.6096733796
The motor is 55 amps, and it is 230 volts. How many and what size 12 volt batteries will work in this machine to allow it to run for 3 continuous hours? Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX coming soon!
Hi This is a DC motor correct , Not AC
Yes, but what invertor would I need, and then what batteries, the cheap one's on ebay? And how long would that give me?
Hi I answered that on the other question you have open We are working 2 different questions at same time It would be a lot easier to to work from 1 question, 1 answerI feel I have answered this question, as you requested
Sure thank you! A++
