14Ah are you sure that is correct?
With an 180W motor, at full power, would give you less than 30 minutes before you start to damage the battery. I would have recommended at least a 44Ah AGM deep cycle battery like the use for golf buggies. Bristol Batteries Ltd can advise and deliver. They are on the net.
