Customer Comments

  • “Motor Size: 1.30” Diameter x 1.03” Length” can be misleading. It suggests the unit is a little over an inch long. It is in fact over 2" long (the motor portion is about an inch, and the permanently-attached gearbox is another inch). I should have checked the dimensional drawing. :P

Gears easily strip

On any motor/gearhead unit, the motor should stall before it causes any damage to the gears. I’ve bought 4 of these and every single one of them has broken its own 30:10 internal gear. Of course you can’t buy the tiny, cheap, little gear, so you have to spend another $25 on a whole new motor. These motors need a warning : APPROACHING STALL WILL BREAK THE GEARS, DON’T EXPECT TO GET MAX TORQUE. I wish I could get my money back and put it towards a real gearmotor that meets the advertised specs. Look for a motor that stalls, not shatters. Also, this products does not have “full metal gears” as advertised; open up the gear head and you’ll find a plastic gear in there!

Sorry to hear that. I would suggest contacting our tech support team about this.
