Topic: Suggestions on where to buy a high torque 12v DC motor (Read 3 times) previous topic - next topic


Hi guys,
I bought one of these: http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1107
but, it doesn't have enough power/torque for by project.
I need a motor that can turn about 100 lbs. at around 4-6 rpms under load.
Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can buy a motor that can do this without breaking the bank?


Perhaps this site might have what you are looking for.  They are a surplus store that specializes in various sized motors, pumps, pneumatics, etc...

While looking at the site of another surplus store I often patronize, I found this 12 VDC car seat motor on sale for $12.50.  They don't mention a torque rating, but given it's intended use and the fact that you'll have to down gear anyway (the shaft goes 190 RPM), it should be able to move over 100 lbs easily.
