Motor 393 Refurb Kit - P/N: 276-2487 - $4.99 USD/CDN
The Motor 393 Replacement Gear set has been replaced by the Motor 393 Refurb Kit.
This convenient replacement gear pack for the 2 Wire Motor 393 will get you going again without having to purchase a new motor. Includes one full set of gears and a full set of replacement screws for the case assembly.
We just got a few of these motor refurb kits, and I think this is one of the best market decisions that VEX has ever made. We had 5 393s with broken gears that we could no longer use, but now with the refurb kits (and some spare good motors) we have enough 393s for 2 robots!
20 is an exaggeration, 14-15 is more accurate:o
We had a VERY aggressive robot during gateway so we started out with a lot of weakened motors. This lead to four sets snapping on the drive train. We had a haywire autonomous at one competition this year that tried to lift a trough out of the ground at a 22:1 ratio. This broke four lift motor gear sets. After redesigning the drive train and not testing it, we broke four more sets at competition on the drive train. then we broke another arm motor at nationals and the intake motor at a practice session.
We have a very complex bot and have only worked the final bugs out in the past month (started building in June).
In other words, I’m thrilled about the Refurb kit.
