Gear reduction for standard 540 (dewalt) motor?


Hey all, i am looking to build something similar to the wild thumper, but would like to use larger, stonger, faster (waterproof) 12v motors, i have a local source for dewalt motors so i figured those would be easiest, is anybody aware of a gearbox that will bolt up to a standard 540/550 motor? and will handle some decent stress?




Unfortunately, we do not have gearboxes for that size motor and do not have any recommendation for where you might find one.

Therobotmarketplace is a good place for this class of motor. They compete on some things, but honestly anything Pololu covers, they do better. A quick glance shows they have a dewalt section

I think the robotmarketplace is a better place for some of the heavier duty motors and such that Pololu as of yet doesn’t do alot with.

The only place where they have more serious cross-over and competition is maybe with some of the higher power motor controllers Pololu has. i don’t really know.
