Hmmmm. I wonder how these compare to PDSGBs in price and performance and quietness? A YouTube search is in order.

It's downright Shermist. . . .

Dave, would you be stating in your listings the overall width, as in, end of shaft to end of other shaft? As well as the unit width excluding the shafts?

I ask, as this information would be very useful for scratch builders :thumbup:
Or people like me that would like to know if I could bodge one of these boxes into the wrong tank ;)

Mick, with a grinder and some sticks like sh*t anything is possible :D
I would be interested to know if the HL/PDSGB are interchangeable as the baseplate looks just like the PDSGB
one ???

No mention of high or low speed, wonder if they are only doing one speed?

If these become popular will they do base plates and drive shafts , as its a modular system fit it would be easy to switch motor units between tanks.

Wonder why they have a different high or low motor position option? Jimster, there is very little information about them online as they are brand new for HL. I saw them a while back, but Forgebear is the first vendor I've seen that has got a shipment besides when I saw them on Ebay months ago. I should've picked one up back then for the hell of it, but I didn't know they would disappear for this long.

The high low motor im pretty sure is referring to high and low ratio

If I were a betting man (and I am) I would take a punt that these are PDSGB gearboxes with different branding. They look identical in every aspect.

Or an exact copy, and that type of thing goes on all the time.

It will be interesting to start seeing some review videos and see some pricing.

If you look at the gears on Daves site you can see that the low/high refers to the main motor position, the
low gearbox motor sits lower and high higher, the box says 2 types of gear ratio so you can probably change the pulley positions over ??? :thumbup: :wave:

Now I've woken up and seen how these boxes go together with the metal plates, these Heng Long boxes are very similar to the other makes.

Therefore, my question is. Would it be possible to get a spare metal plate with the two gears and shafts along with a gearbox? Either make you sell would work for me if either company would supply the spares.

My reasoning for wanting a spare plate etc, I could use both plates with the original final drive gear positions becoming idler gears, and the extra plate could be attached further forward, giving me two narrow metal drive shaft mounts to fit within the Sherman transmission cover.

No to both.
Only those with vendor status can post pictures in this section.
