Making the tanks was a huge pain. We spent months chasing small leaks. Prepping the tanks properly before welding is a big help.
Around $1300Around $1300About 40 hoursYes.
I'm using the Powercube to propel an art car for Burning Flipside.
Over a year
I think there is a lot to be improved upon. The documentation is very incongruent. Tom helped me a lot via email and documentation for the next iteration (powercuve v7) helped a lot.
I used a different engine which I salvaged from a friend (kawasaki fd731v) which doesn't perfectly fit.
The tube used for the tanks was extremely pricey and metal sellers want to sell an entire "stick" of 25 feet at a time.
The fitment of the hydraulic cooler above the tank is too tight, it doesn't fit easily. Mine is wedged in.
Initially I had hoped there would be people interested in buying my powercube, but there wasn't any. Now I'm glad it works and want to build the brick press and keep the machines.
Better documentation. By far this would be the most helpful. How about a complete package for a given machine?

Find a way to not have to fabricate the tanks.
Make it easier to replicate quickly.
