Wheels for skid steer

Recommended Posts


I am facing difficulties with angular rotation for a skid steer system. I am designing a 65 kg 4 wheel drive skid steer robot for a payload of 100 kg. I am using 160 W rated motors. However when testing, I see that the motors are being overleaded wheneber the robot tries to turn. 

I am currently using 400 mm tyres with a regular road surface tyre type thread. 

Would really appreciate if someone could advise on what sort of tyres are best used for such skid steer systems.
