    Hi, what is the itemnumber of the motor, or is it a kind of gearbox?

    The motor is an old one. Its reference is 71427c01
    You can find it on Bricklink for around 2-3 Euros.

    However, you can replace it, thanks to a couple of small adaptations, by a standard M-motor, as you can see on the video

    Hi, I build the Shovel, nice work and good pdf, when it starts it goes very fast, I connected the motor to an old train device so I can regulate the speed. What do I have to do when I want to build it with a M-motor to get the speed slower? Without using the train-device. Do I have to experience with gear?

    hello Excal1bur,

    you can do some gearing tests on the following website: http://gears.sariel.pl/

    for Shovel, I would suggest you use the part 6588 “WORM GEAR BLOCK”, coupled with a 24-tooth gear wheel and a worm part. (like on the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6RStFalm5k).
    With M-motor plugged to the worm, you will significantly slow down rotation of the 24-tooth gear wheel, without using the trin-device

    hope it helps

    regards
