    Hey guys so I will be starting my 6 DOF silent chill type build soon. I have to order motors tonight or tomorrow, so please help me decide between PGSAW and Transtecno. Below is the comparison chart.

    One thing I could not understand is that how are pgsaw motors able to deliver 50-60 Nm of Torque with less wattage, less current draw, more RPM and less $$$. Thanks

    Hi,

    Look at this motor (350w 60rpm 45Nm).
    You can ask for a special shaft. I ordered with dual shaft, this is very useful and very good quality !

    @Wanegain so you see the motor that you have lisTed has a torque of 10-25 NM. where as pgsaw is offering 50-60 NM of torque.

    @BondeX look at the datasheet :
    12V 300W : 40Nm
    12V 500W : 50Nm

    so @Wanegain do you see my point now.
    alibaba'so 12V 300W = 40 Nm
    12V 500W = 50 Nm
    and pgsaw 12V 180W= 50-60 Nm

    How ??????
    who is lying???

    12V 180W= 50-60Nm is impossible. This is most probably the brake torque, so it means half torque ;)

    I have 24V 120W 25Nm too and it's true.

    so to be on the safe side I think I should go with Transtechno as they are a reputed company.

    Yes, 1370.00 USD...for that kind of money I would go with AC to be honest.

    we'll I am thinking that pgsaw's motors should be at least 25 Nm, so for 700$ I think they should be OK. coz u guys are right, 1400 is too much and so far I have not heard anyone complain regarding pgsaw's motors.

    Even at 700.00 each I would still go with AC. That is a very high price for 12v motors....

    oh @Historiker it's 700$ for 6 motors shipped vs 1370$ for 6 shipped with transtecno.

    Sorry, I cannot give you advice for this purchase. I built my 6DoF with winch motors. I do look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    it all seems so expensive still though. I picked up 9 motors for less than $500. I would think there is some less expensive route. I would think less than 100bucks each is out there.

    @bruce stephen you are certainly correct, there is a cheaper option and that is me buying all those bodine motors from you for less than 500$ :grin
