SLOW motors
« on: March 04, 2007, 05:40:19 PM »

I would like to know if there are any motors out there that are VERY SLOW running but have lots of torque???

ive seen motors running 3000rpm on 6volts which is slow but i need slower without the use of a gearbox unless i have no choice.
speed isnt the priority, the main thing is pulling power without the huge amp draw.

just so you all know the motor wont be running a prop but a wheel ;D.

Hi,

Contact Model Motors Direct, they have a range of low drain motors and may have one suitable for a wheel.

Phone 01747 812440 between 9-10 am

Jay,
I have a couple that run less than 250 rpm and draw almost nothing.

Hi,
       You want slow motors ? any idea what size and voltage you would be looking for as there are several (automobile) type out there.

Some may require a slight mod but I can think of nothing too difficult to get lots of torque with very slow speeds.

Cheers for the info folks.

Bob i shall see you when you have dry feet  ;D

Im building a boat crane from scratch using some pictures off the web, nothing special but it will be a working model and slow is what im after for wheels and the lifting motors. As for voltage im going to use 6v as i have the batteries already, size of motor isnt an issue either.
