Asiatam Gearboxes

Please post here if there is anything that you want to sell.

Postby Lo_Thar » Fri May 15, 2020 1:49 pm

Hello. Maybe they'll be useful to someone. Price: 50 euros - free shipping - new ones cost 105 euros

Angular gears from Asiatama for sale. Very cool, the tank is really slow on them (the planetary gear ratio is 30: 1),
BUT THESE ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR HEAVY TANKS !!!

So they will be perfect for basic, full plastic Heng Long:

Tiger 1
Sturmtiger
Panther [not Panther G]
Panzer III
Panzer IV
StuG III
T34-85
T-90


and how someone builds a tank, e.g. from Takom or other company, and converts to RC
Dimensions together with the motor of one gear is 4.5x8cm

I add more powerful 9V engines for free
You can also have fun and change the engines for even more powerful


The price is less than half new, and they have traveled maybe 10 meters

Here's my problem with them:

Are you sure you want to wave goodbye to them?

Do you not want to try a PayPal claim? Or, a credit/bank card claim?

If you PM me your PayPal details I'll send you the money and shipping details.

I hate them. I spent 5 hours to mount them properly, I spent money on additional engines and I'm sick of them. I hope you do something wise with them. Just don't write to me later that the torro tank doesn't want to ride on them; P You are from England?

LOL, fair enough. No, I won't complain, I only want to have a close look at them and experiment with that style of gearbox.

Yes, I'm in England :thumbup:

I wouldn't pay 100 + euros for them, especially with the weak motors.
Is there not an alternative on the market?

I should add, It's not the expense of paying out the money, I'm about to purchase two sets of Tamiya gearboxes that are more money a pair. It's just that these Asiatam gearboxes really aren't worth the money they cost.
I purchased these as I'm curious about them, not out of necessity.

Edit for a note; when I joined this forum, I was adamant that standard Heng Long gearboxes would do, and I wasn't going to pay out large sums of money for gearboxes, nor would I spend more money than a whole tank on after market boards. . . . Hmmm, that didn't last long :{

I think more folks should consider the DKLM PDSGB units because you can swap the gearbox into your different tanks. Saves money and each of your tanks will enjoy a sweet gearbox/motor. All you need is to buy mounting plates and output shafts for each tank. It’s a simple process to swap. Check out their YouTube videos. Just a thought I’m throwing out there.

Do the DKLM Gearboxes take up the same space as the original gearboxes or more or less,
Within reason it is unimportant in the Tiger 1 hull but In the limited space of the PZ111/4 it really does matter as does the hight.

Mick do you plan to use these or simply experiment with them? I find the design very interesting, are they quiet when running? Keep us posted :thumbup:

For big tanks like panther or tiger we in Poland build own gearboxes:
For example from my king tiger:

Mr Lo_Thar, as I haven't had the chance to power up these boxes yet, I'm assuming they should run quietly as Carl asked.

These boxes are meant to be 30 to one gear ratio, is that total or just for the planetary part?
Also, what stopped you swapping the motors around?

Ah, thank you :thumbup:

Am I correct in thinking these gearboxes will be quiet compared to standard ones?

I think I'll give those involved in the above conversations a chance to see this before I split this topic. I'll put the posts into your other thread about these boxes.
