This gearbox is a third generation design. Don't let the small size fool you. There is a lot packed into a small package.
It is a planetary gearbox design that has been tested in the FIRST Robotics Competition for years. These are easily configurable while being small in size and low weight. Components are CNC machined for tight tolerances, using cold rolled steel gears and hardened 4140 steel carrier plates.
A standard hybrid 550/775 motor block comes with this gearbox as well as a RS-550/RS-775 mounting kits and bushings.

Maximum torque recommendation
We recommend maximum torque not exceed 35 ft-lb for all P60 Series Gearboxes. It is possible to mount motors that will exceed this in higher gear reductions. Higher reduction gearboxes should be utilized primarily for speed reduction. Designs utilizing a P60 gearbox / motor combination that will exceed 35 ft-lb should include a method of limiting torque to prevent damage to the gearbox.
SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED
Gearbox will be delivered assembled and tested; however, it will need to be disassembled to grease and mount the motor prior to use. No special tools are required, typically only a screw driver and allen wrench. A small arbor press or bench vise is useful for pushing the pinion onto the motor shaft. The gearbox MUST BE GREASED prior to use, grease IS NOT INCLUDED and must be purchased separately. We recommend our Red Tacky Grease.
This gearbox will mount one RS-500, RS-775 (am-2161) or similar motor.
MOTOR NOT INCLUDED - Motor must be purchased separately.
MOUNTING HARDWARE INCLUDED
Gearbox includes one mounting kit. Mounting kit contains everything required to mount 1 motor including pinion, screws, and lock washers to attach the motor to the gearbox.
Mounting a large load to the end of an unsupported shaft may damage the gearmotor. The shafts on these motors are supported by two ball bearings making them fairly rugged; however, we do not recommend them to be used with large overhung loads. We recommend using a design that supports the end of the shaft. If it is not possible to support the end of the shaft, we recommend mounting the load as close to the face of the gearmotor as possible and cutting the shaft to length.
