Subassembly Fabrication

The purpose of this section is to cut the raw steel into required lengths and shapes as required for final assembly. These step includes drilling and cutting steel up to 3/8” in thickness.

  1. Engine & Hydraulic Pump mounts
  2. Quick attach mounts
  3. Fuel tank
  4. Oil Cooler Mount
  5. Key Switches and Choke
  6. Electrical cables
  7. Battery Mount
  8. Mufflers
  9. Hydraulic reservoir


Power Cube assembly requires all the parts listed in the Bill Of Materials to be available and prepared as detailed in the “Fabrication” section (above). Assembly requires a welder (electric or torch) capable of welding metal 3/8” thick.

A Power Cube Jig can be very useful during the welding stage:

Power Cube Frames welding - 45 minutes per frame with one person assisting on jig clamping.
  1. Frame
  2. Gas tank
  3. Hydraulic tank
  4. Engine and Hydraulic Motor Mount
  5. Battery mount
  6. Oil cooler and fan mounts
  7. Solenoid Mounting Bolts
  8. Keyswitch and Throttle mounts
  9. Quick Attach Plates
  10. Finish and Painting
  11. Install Hydraulic Components
  12. Install Engine and Hydraulic Pump
  13. Install Solenoid
  14. Install Mufflers
  15. Wiring
  16. Install Throttle Control

Final touches

  1. Install engine and secure with bolts, nuts and washers
  2. Connect wiring to key switch and solenoid
  3. Connect fuel line
  4. Connect coupling to engine shaft
  5. Install hydraulic pump on coupling and secure with nuts & washers
  6. Install fan and hydraulic oil cooler
