This precision 6-Speed Gear Box, High Efficiency, is a compact unit with a variety of gear ratio options to choose from. Several crank arms and a RE-260 motor are included. Perfect for many Tamiya Construction and Robotics projects.
The Tamiya 72005 6-speed gearbox is a versatile, high-efficiency gearbox that you can build in one of the following gear ratios: 11.6:1, 29.8:1, 76.5:1, 196.7:1, 505.9:1, and 1300.9:1. Whatever your application, chances are that one of the configurations will do the job. A clutch gear protects the gearbox in high-gear-ratio configurations so that the gearbox does not rip itself apart if the output shaft gets stuck.
The low-voltage motors in the 6-speed gearbox run on 3-6 volts and draw up to a few amps. Motor overheating can be caused by excessive stalling, even at very low voltages. We recommend that you make sure that it doesn’t stall for more than a few seconds at a time.
This gearbox has a 4 mm, round output shaft, which works with the wheels that are compatible with Tamiya 4 mm, round shafts.
Tamiya makes a variety of gearboxes that are perfect for building small robots.The following table shows the different gear ratios supported by each model to help you select the Tamiya gearbox that best fits your needs.
