3mm Shaft Gearmotors

With a cross section measuring only 10×12 mm (0.39″×0.47″), these small brushed DC gearmotors are available in a wide range of gear ratios—from 5:1 up to 1000:1—and offer a choice between three different motors: high-power (HP), medium-power (MP), and standard. Some versions are also available with an optional extended motor shaft.

All of these Tamiya gearboxes have 3mm hexagonal shafts.

This compact, inexpensive, low-current gearmotor (brushed DC motor with a 120:1 reduction gearbox) is well suited for use in small robots. At 4.5 V, it has a free-run speed of 120 RPM and a stall torque of approximately 20 oz-in (however, the built-in safety clutch might start slipping before the stall torque is reached). The D-shaped output shaft has a diameter of 3 mm and works with the Pololu wheels and 3mm universal aluminum mounting hub. This gearbox output shaft is perpendicular to the motor shaft.
