Off Road Blender

I was sitting around thinking the other day and I came up with an Idea. What do you all think about using an old starter motor as the motor in a blender. So you could use a blender while camping.
I was thinking of putting the blender on a platform and mounting the starter motor next to it with a belt drive. That would be ONE STRONG blender. No problems busting up big ice cubes
And with the drinking you could make you would be the star of Camp.

Re: Off Road Blender

What would you use to run the starter motor?

Re: Off Road Blender

There is a company that sells a blender with a weed wacker motor attached. I haven't seen adds for it in a few years. Kind of heavy to lug into the woods, however.

Re: Off Road Blender

The company TailGator makes an off-raod blender that is powered by a 24cc 2-stroke engine. It is quite pricey at >$300. I am sure you could build a much better one after building up a Jeep.

Re: Off Road Blender

The other bonus to this is you'd have a spare starter motor for trail repairs.

I've also seen air powered blenders used with OBA, but I'd have to agree that a $20 power converter would be easiest.

Re: Off Road Blender

I've seen and (as soon as I find one) have plans to build one made from a weed whacker. I've seen them in action, and because the long shaft is cut down, it's actually pretty portable.

Re: Off Road Blender

You guys do know that Wal-Mart sells 12V blenders for around $25 right? Nothing fancy just a simple blender with an on/off switch.

Re: Off Road Blender

I have seen peopl who added a blender base to the side of their Jeep and use their on board air with a diegrinder or somerhint like it to turn the blade on the blender. The base was just a stand and the adapter they used to connect the pitcher and on board air. I so had Jeep envy.
