Is this motor reverseable?
I need a 12 VDC motor that can spin a load that weighs roughly 350 lbs. from right to left. If this particular motor isnt capable of handling that do you carry one that is? Thank you- John

This motor is reversible by switching the positive and negative feed. The motor MUST come to a complete stop prior to flipping the switch. An electric braking mechanism may be required for rapid switching. As for torque, these Leeson motors are probably plenty strong enough to move your 350 lb. load, but you can easily increase the motors torque by decreasing the diameter of its pulley in relation to the pulley attached to the load.

Yes, polarities can be changed for desired rotation.
