BIGFOOT #20, the world’s first electric monster truck, carries a custom-designed battery-powered electric motor, which was designed and built by Dennis Berube of Phoenix to wield high-horsepower and high-RPM capabilities. Three banks of 10 ODYSSEY® batteries power the engine for a total of 360 Volts. The additional 6 batteries power the brakes and steering systems. Other custom features include on-board battery chargers and a variable-speed programmable speed controller.
Each of the 36 PC1200 batteries that power the BIGFOOT #20 weighs 38 pounds, but provides 1,200 five-second pulse hot cranking amps (PHCA), as well as 540 cold-cranking amps (CCA), 78 minutes of reserve capacity and 400 cycles of deep cycle capability at 80 percent depth of discharge (DOD).
Odyssey Battery BIGFOOT #20 made its public debut on October 30, 2012 at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV. On November 8th, 2012, it crushed cars for the first time. You can see the world’s first and only electric monster truck at select events in the U.S.
