Simple motor question
« on: March 06, 2008, 11:19:04 PM »
I had a question about manufacturer motor ratings when gear reductions are factory mounted. 

1.  All the ratings already account for the gear reduction correct?  For example: RPM, torque, efficiency?

depends. if it's high torque/low speed you can be pretty sure it rates the gearbox's output.
