    12v
    44Ah
    and 420 cranking amps

    kept topped up with a 25A 24v power supply

    What is the difference between 1800 rpm and 3000 rpm engine and 135 rpm and 75 rpm gearbox?

    some motors have different max rpms

    the output shaft from the gearbox can have different ratios

    the slower the rpm, the slower the speed of the actuator will be

    however - the gearbox ratio will affect how much torque the output has

    choose the most powerful motor you can get and a gearbox ratio between 50:1 and 30:1
