    Finally! A high powered gearmotor solution for hobbyweight robots. For this geared motor, we combined a rugged Banebots 256:1 gearbox with a very powerful DuraTrax 550 motor, resulting in a bolt-in ready gearmotor that will provide plenty of power at a price that won't break the bank. You can replace the DuraTrax RS-550 motor with any RS-540, RS-545 or RS-555 or similar motor.

    Gearbox Dimensions

    Overall Customer Rating of 2 Reviews:

    It's powerful but I don't suggest use it for long operation. Gearbox heat up very quick and it might cause the damage in gearbox.

    The gearbox and motor combination is an insanely powerful combination. I have verified the specs with field testing, they are spot on. I have had some issues with the final planetary reduction. The sun gear self destructs after 20 hours of high torque operation. If you are looking for unmatched torque to weight ratio for a relatively short time, then this is the buy for you.
