    Hi @shannonb1 , this is the link for the motor provider with specs:
    https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/12V24V-250W-worm-gear-motor-dc_60284001590.html
    The model we are using is customised with a double output shaft, as @momoclic said.

    Nelson.

    Désolé, mais je pensais que c'était les 350w... donc les deux peuvent faire l'affaire avec plus ou moins de puissance.

    Sorry, but I thought it was the 350w ... so the two can do the trick with more or less power.

    I was wonder what are the swivel joints you have mounted to the bottom of your plat form and the arms. Where did you get the arms mounted to the motors?
