2 wire 393 motor

Does any one know how much weight a 2 wire 393 motor can carry?

It depends on what gearing you have it on. A torque gearing will carry more than a turbo or a high speed.

It also depends on the location of the weight relative to the pivot. 393 motors can output a relatively definitive amount of torque, but weight (force) is a different matter.

Another shout out to @jpearman

Look at this thread (and the ones it references)


I try and have the kids stay under 7 in lb of torque per motor. The 393 can go higher but with power gobbled up at a good rate leading to a greater chance of PTC trips.

Thank you all :slight_smile:
