These small brushed DC gearmotors can deliver a lot of power for their size. This version has a 29:1 metal gearbox with a 0.276"-long, 4 mm-diameter D-shaped output shaft.

Key specs at 6 V: 450 RPM and 250 mA free-run, 25 oz-in (1.8 kg-cm) and 3.3 A stall.

Overview

The 20D mm line of brushed DC gearmotors all have the same dimensions except for the length of the gearbox, and they are intended for use at 6 V. In general, these kinds of motors can run at voltages above and below this nominal voltage, so they should comfortably operate in the 3 – 9 V range. Higher voltages could start negatively affecting the life of the motor, and lower voltages might not be practical. Four different gear ratios are available:

Gear Ratio No-Load Speed
@ 6 V
No-Load Current
@ 6 V
Stall Torque
@ 6 V
Stall Current
@ 6 V
29:1 450 RPM 250 mA 25 oz-in 3.3 A
56:1 250 RPM 250 mA 45 oz-in 3.3 A
73:1 180 RPM 250 mA 60 oz-in 3.3 A
154:1 90 RPM 250 mA 120 oz-in 3.3 A

Note: Stalling gearmotors can greatly decrease their lifetimes, occasionally resulting in immediate damage to the gearbox. This is especially true for the higher gear ratios, which can generate enough torque to damage themselves. Prolonged stalls (on the order of seconds) can result in thermal damage to the motor windings and brushes.

The gearmotor face plate has two mounting holes threaded for M2.5 screws, and you can use our custom-designed 20D mm metal gearmotor bracket (shown in the left picture below) to mount the gearmotor to your project via these mounting holes and the screws that come with the bracket.

This gearmotor has an output shaft with a diameter of 4 mm; the Pololu universal aluminum mounting hubs for 4mm shafts can be used to mount our larger Pololu wheels (60mm-, 70mm-, 80mm-, and 90mm-diameter) or custom wheels and mechanisms to the gearmotor’s output shaft (see the right picture above). Alternatively, you could use our 4mm scooter wheel adapter to mount many common scooter, skateboard, and inline skate wheels to the gearmotor’s output shaft. The gearbox’s output shaft also works directly with the 120mm-diameter Wild Thumper wheels, as shown below.

Dimension Diagram

The picture below shows the dimensions (in mm) of the 20D mm line of gearmotors. The value of L depends on the gear ratio of the gearbox: 29:1 is 15.7 mm, 56:1 and 73:1 is 17.2 mm, and 154:1 is 18.6 mm.
