If it’s a DR4B then you can do a standard 2 motor lift driving the top 2 gears individually and then do what @Connor1814A did and have a single motor in the middle powering both the bottom gears.

I’ll tell you right now you dont need 3 motors on a lift. Two at most.

If you band it properly you’ll really only need one…

If you use pneumatics you’ll need none. But who likes pneumatics anyway? Just link the lift to the wheels and you’re good to go lol.

I could see a 2 motor lift, but 3 is kind of excessive. If you need 3 motors, there’s probably something heavier than it needs to be.

Maybe @doge just really wants to be able to carry every cube on the field at once.

@sankeydd

Key word: “most”

Depending on what you want your carrying capacity to be you could go with 1 motor(100 rpm of course) geared 1:7 or possibly compound 1:9 (too slow, don’t dew it) But if you want to be able to have a larger carrying capacity you would want 2 motors on your lift 1:7.
