This brushed DC gearmotor has a long (0.365" or 9.27 mm), 3 mm-diameter D-shaped metal output shaft that matches Pololu's assortment of Pololu wheels and the Solarbotics RW2 rubber wheel. Alternatively, Pololu's 3mm universal mounting hub can be used to mount custom wheels and mechanisms to the gearmotor’s output shaft.
The face plate has two mounting holes threaded for M2 screws, and you can use Pololu's custom-designed 15.5D mm metal gearmotor bracket (shown in the picture below) to mount the gearmotor to your project via these mounting holes and the screws that come with the bracket.

These motors are intended for use at 6 V. In general, these kinds of motors can run at voltages above and below this nominal voltage, so they should comfortably operate in the 3 – 9 V range. Lower voltages might not be practical, and higher voltages could start negatively affecting the life of the motor.

Pololu offer a wide selection of metal gearmotors that offer different combinations of speed and torque. Pololu's metal gearmotor comparison table can help you find the motor that best meets your project’s requirements.
