    last thing you want while cruising at 10 mph is for a wheel to break or fall off

    May just be the camera angle, but it looks a little caddywompus. If you are planning on going fast, it must be sqaure or it will rattle itself apart.

    every motor is different.

    It is like asking how much gas does a car engine take... Well a SMART Fortwo takes less than a Semi truck

    less money, less hassle... I wasn't even going to go into the whole concept of an air motor concerning the point that compressed air is the power source, not electricity. And I didn't se a lot of room for storing a large enough air tank in there to be effective.

    So go with a simple small electric motor... You don't need a lot with that cart you have... Too much power would be very dangerous. What about the one I linked you to? Not good enough?
