30:1 Metal Gearmotor 37Dx52L mm
This gearmotor is a powerful brushed DC motor with 30:1 metal gearbox intended for operation at 12 V. These units have a 0.61"-long, 6 mm-diameter D-shaped output shaft. This gearmotor is also available with an integrated encoder.
Key specs at 12 V: 350 RPM and 300 mA free-run, 110 oz-in (8 kg-cm) and 5 A stall.

Note: Stalling or overloading gearmotors can greatly decrease their lifetimes and even result in immediate damage. Stalls can also result in rapid (potentially on the order of seconds) thermal damage to the motor windings and brushes; a general recommendation for brushed DC motor operation is 25% or less of the stall current.
These motors are intended for use at 12 V, though in general, these kinds of motors can run at voltages above and below the nominal voltage (they can begin rotating at voltages as low as 1 V). Lower voltages might not be practical, and higher voltages could start negatively affecting the life of the motor.

Exact gear ratio: ``(25×30×40) / (10×10×10) = bb(30:1)``
April 2014 update: We have changed the gear ratio in this product’s name from “29:1” to “30:1” so the name more accurately reflects the product. The product itself has not changed.
The face plate has six mounting holes evenly spaced around the outer edge threaded for M3 screws. These mounting holes form a regular hexagon and the centers of neighboring holes are 15.5 mm apart. We carry two brackets for these gearmotors: a stamped aluminum L-bracket (sold in pairs) and a sturdier, tombstone-style machined aluminum bracket (sold individually):
The 6 mm diameter gearbox output shaft works with the Pololu universal aluminum mounting hub for 6mm shafts, which can be used to mount our larger Pololu wheels (80mm- and 90mm-diameter) or custom wheels and mechanisms to the gearmotor’s output shaft as shown in the left picture below. Alternatively, you could use our 6mm scooter wheel adapter to mount many common scooter, skateboard, and inline skate wheels to the gearmotor’s output shaft as shown in the right picture below:

Warning: Do not screw too far into the mounting holes as the screws can hit the gears. We recommend screwing no further than 3mm (1/8") into the screw hole.
