This is a placeholder topic for “150:1 Micro Metal Gearmotor HPCB 6V SKU: POLOLU-3066” comments.
This gearmotor is a miniature high-power, 6 V brushed DC motor with long-life carbon brushes and a 150.58:1 metal gearbox. It has a cross section of 10 × 12 mm, and the D-shaped gearbox output shaft is 9 mm long and 3 mm in diameter.Read more
The gears themselves do not appear to be metal, is this correct?
That is likely just a trick of the light, these are definitely a full metal gearbox, anything less would definitely strip given the torque these little motors can apply!
You need to be more specific.
The text at the top says a gear box of 150.58:1 and your “details for item 3038” in your reply says 29.86:1. The motor listed above is “3066”
Which is it ???
All the details for this series can be found here
I had searched our range for a variant in stock so I could pull one from shelf to take different photos if required.
3038 is of the same series and construction to my knowledge, just a different ratio.
Yes. Just a bit confusing for that moment. The full details are in that link above.
Quite detailed actually compared to some.
