12V/2.4Kg-cm/202RPM 18:1 DC Gear Motor

ID: 3259_0

This DC motor has a 18:1 gearbox, a rated speed of 202 RPM and rated torque of 2.45 Kg·cm.


The 3259 is a 12 volt gear motor, generating 2.45 Kg-cm of torque at 202 RPM. While this motor is small and inexpensive, it is also aggressive- less efficient than the others, but very powerful for its size.

This family of motors (3258, 3259, 3260) have the same gearbox type and mounting metrics as the (3254, 3255, 3256, 3257) family of motors.


warning The torque this motor produces when it stalls exceeds the rated strength of the gearbox. This means that stalling or very heavily loading this motor can cause serious damage to the gearbox. To avoid damage, avoid sudden loads or any load higher than the Maximum Strength of Gears spec.
