    Brushless motors need a real expensive controller, you might want to see if that is included in the price.

    The normal DC motor may also have higher starting and stall torque, but that will depend on its construction ie if it is perm magnet or series wound. For remote locations and/or high-load offroad use I would probably go the standard DC motor. You can rig it easy with a couple of wires if the controller fails and in general might be more powerful for bumps and erratic loads unlike the brushless which is better suited for light cruising smooth roads.

    Background info --
    Been hunting Northern Minnesota for years ---
    Old age and heart condition prevent me from doing much
    walking --- I'm 72 years old and do get permission from Minn
    DNR to hunt from a Four wheeler -- Problem is the US Forest Service
    has control of what trail you can run a four wheeler on -- and their
    Map makes no sense --- half mile here -- 2 miles there --
    nothing hooked together --- so I plan to build me a electric wheelchair
    om a 3 wheel bike that I can hunt from with a nice comfortable seat
    that goes 10 plus mph
    Thanks Again --
    Lee
