    Is it possible to run this motor with a L293D? I checked the data sheets and I think it is, but I want to make sure before ordering :-)

    I am planing to use it for an automated door in a chicken house :))

      Yes,the L233D had plenty of capacity, more than you need for this motor. Happy hacking!

Good little gearmotor

I originally ordered the 30 rpm motor gear box but after recalculating my needs I had to return the 30 ram and reorder the 303 romantic motor and am still waiting for my refund very good quality and strong gearmotor now looking for a gearmotor to supply around 800 to 1000 rpm

Very good quality

This motor is high quality I like the fact that it is all metal gears. Using it for in actuator to move a car stereo face in a of my car dash, making it hideaway. High quality motor. And quiet.
