73:1 Metal Gearmotor 20Dx42L mm (Short Output Shaft)
These small brushed DC gearmotors can deliver a lot of power for their size. This version has a 6V brushed DC motor combined with a 73:1 metal spur gearbox. The gearmotor is cylindrical with a diameter of 20 mm, and the D-shaped output shaft is 4 mm in diameter and extends 10.7 mm from the face plate of the gearbox.
Key specs at 6 V: 180 RPM and 250 mA free-run, 60 oz-in (4.3 kg-cm) and 3.2 A stall.
Note: This gearmotor is being replaced by a new version with a slightly different gear ratio and a longer output shaft (the motor portion is unchanged). This short-shaft version will be discontinued when the remaining stock is gone.
Alternatives available with variations in these parameter(s): gear ratio Select variant…

MATLAB script to plot motor performance curves for Pololu brushed DC gearmotors
This MATLAB script, written by Ali Asgher Mansoor Habiby, plots speed, power, current draw, and efficiency as they vary with torque when you input the gearmotor specifications. It also prints the resistance of the motor, and the current draw and torque at which maximum efficiency and maximum power occur.
