These standard gearmotors are incredibly tough and feature full metal gears to help you drive wheels, gears, or almost anything else that needs to turn. They have a gear ratio of 3000:1 and operate up to 12 volts and deliver a stall torque of 2995 oz-in. and a max speed of 1 RPM. Each standard gearmotor sports a 6mm diameter D-shaft.
This skill concerns mechanical and robotics knowledge. You may need to know how mechanical parts interact, how motors work, or how to use motor drivers and controllers.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will be required to know some basics about motors, basic motor drivers and how simple robotic motion can be accomplished.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

Based on 3 ratings:
Documentation on line is a little lacking of mechanical dimensions but motors perform as stated and arrived on time.
Confusing specifications: motor dimensions vs shipping dimensions. The motor is actually of no use for my project.

Anyone have links to the two parts shown in the right most photo of the acto wheel bracket and mount?
this is the main bracket. You could also use this one as well. The motor mounts are here. Which one you use will depend on the application.
So I received this the other day and I cannot seem to get it to move at all. I have it hooked up to my arduino via an H-bridge that drives my other 6-12v DC gear motors fine. I've also tried applying a 9v source to it directly.
Am I doing something wrong or should I look to RMA this motor?
Does anybody have experience with the speed/torque characteristics for this motor or similar motors from this series at 3V operating voltage? Is there any law for scaling the performance from the 12V values given above? Thanks a lot for your help!
