Ideal for education and hobby projects. This kit includes two motors and two sets of gears,to enable wheels running in different directions.
Operating voltage 3.0-6.0V (4.5V nominal).
Requires battery & holder - not included.
Full set of parts including wheels & tyres
3 gear ratios can be configured:
60:1 (200 RPM)
120:1 (100 RPM)
288:1 (42 RPM)
Easy to follow instructions
Length approx. 68mm, height 30mm, wheel diameter 36mm.
Are the two motors detachable, or are they both fixed in the holder. Furthermore, if I were to use the rimmed tyres, could I move for example a LEGO block left to right by running the motor forwards and backwards, if the lego block was on the tyre. Kind Regards, Student

Hello, The motors come separate from the housing and when received would be fixed into place. With regards to the rimmed tyres it would be difficult to say if it could move a block forwards and backwards as it would depend on how the block was in contact with the tyres, but there shouldn’t be a reason why it would be able to move the block.
Do I have to solder this component onto a motor circuit board? Or does it connect to a controller?

Hi Joe, This can be connected straight to a micro controller that is capable of running a motor. There are two solder tags on the motor which would be used to connect a piece of wire from the motor to the controller.
How long is the main axle that the wheels mount to? Another way of saying that would be: How wide is it? You only provide Length and height specs.

The shaft length is 32mm for each shaft.
My name is Dave Rodman and we are looking for a suitable gearbox for the following application. We have to try to measure the speed of a hydraulic ram, using a rotary encoder with a certain diameter wheel attached to the shaft, this is then connected to a Pic Microcontroller to show the speed of the ram in mm/min. The electronics is no problem as I have programmed a suitable PIC in this case using an 18f4431 with quadrature encoder interface and using the QEI module in velocity mode to measure the RPM, I have this setup on the bench now and it works fine using an Avago technologies 512ppr encoder,6.3mm dia shaft. It would also be an advantage to change the ratio of the gearbox if needed. Kind regards Dave

This gearbox is best suited for driving motors rather than recording the speed as a lot of energy is lost when working it in reverse (turning the motor axel to turn the motor shaft).
