Hi.  I know basics on this, but I would like to take an existing push cart and convert it so that I can operate it remotely.  I currently have it set up with an older 12V motor with an axle turning both rear wheel and powered by 12V 28AH Lead battery.  The weight to move will be approximately 20 pounds or roughly 9 KG.  My preference is to have a smallish (pocket size) remote.  

It is really a three wheel unit, two rear, one front, but I can change to 4 wheels if that works better for steering.   There is currently no steering functionality so I think I will need to build in servos.  This is where I need help.   This is all fairly basic for the community but I could really use some help.

If I use a 12V servo can I power it off the same 12V 28AH batter?  

i tried to attached a couple of photos of items but it wouldn't work.    

Any help would be appreciated.

Of course you can. As long as the "batter" can supply enough current to power the motors and the servo at the same time.
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.
