Is there an axle available to fit these wheels so, in the case of a buggy, 2 wheels could be powered by motors and two wheels could 'free wheel' on an axle

Hello Peter, Currently we don’t have an axle which is designed to fit this wheel, however the wooden dowel that we stock does fit the wheel although it is slightly loose. You may depending on your design be able to use this wooden dowel as your free running axle. https://www.kitronik.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=4mm+dowel
Will it have enough traction to move a block up and down? That is if it isn't on a buggy. Or is there a more suitable motor for this purpose

Hi Joe, The item in question is a wheel that is suitable for use with the following item https://www.kitronik.co.uk/2547-right-angle-geared-hobby-motor.html. It is difficult to say if it would be able to move a block up and down as it depends on the size and weight of the block. The best option is to try it out.
