Just ordered 2! Will wait till arrived then return eBay order.

 

Thanks mate

You're welcome 😁 It seems like one of those deals that seems too good to be true and your really just buying a bracket or lead or something, but I've got mine so it is as advertised.

To anyone wanting a motor, I think I've found the best deal I've ever seen: A 250w 24v motor with 11 tooth sprocket for £3.49 with free postage!

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Microfibre-Glasses-Cleaner-Spectacles-Sunglasses/dp/B07933CTHH/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1548770088&sr=8-4&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=250w+24v+motor&dpPl=1&dpID=415FKdQzpkL&ref=plSrch

I assume it's a mistake but I bought 2 yesterday and got them today. Perfect. 

Grab em while you can!

I’ve seen someone add a control to there switch so they can modulate speed

That would just be a 12 or 24v pwm available on ebay for under a fiver

I used one for about a year instead of a spring controller on my van mount which was exactly the same except it used the pump pressure switch instead of seperate dead end

Still worth it as a pressure switch cost about 2 quid if burnt out

I see Waterworks in Corby is offering a 12vdc motor for £48.00 including VAT

 

https://www.waterworkswindowcleaning.co.uk/products/12vdc-powerup-motor.html

Doesn't give any details about it and the picture doesn't give much away. Looks pretty much the same. But it might be a 300w. Probably still a 12/24v motor even though it says 12v. Just goes to show how ridiculous £3.49 is. They were pretty cheap at £23.99 on eBay!

I think they've got wise to it. Ordered 2 more and got some microfiber glass cleaning thingies instead.

 

 

Strangely though, they've still got the motors listed on Amazon for £3.49...

@LAMS @Scots lad @BigFoot

Did you ever get your motors through?

 

I told my son about these cheap motors. He's an 18 year old Richard Branson. I think he bought all of the stock last night.

You'd think so, but enforcing it would be difficult. 

I've ended up with 6 motors though. 2 for me, 2 for a mate and another two for a future project.

The last 2 I ordered and got microfiber prongy things instead I'll just return for a refund.

I don't even know if they got wise to it or if it's just so badly organised that the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing. Surely once they'd realised their mistake (if mistake it was) then they'd edit the listing. Maybe it's just pot luck wether you get motors or microfiber prongy things!

@Tuffers Hope your aspiring entrepreneur doesn't end up with 1000 microfiber prongs! (Why do PetrolScooter even have microfiber glassers wipers anyhow? Did they just send them from another seller as a loophole as they have to send something )

 

Edit: they've updated the price, now £24.49

My son put 2 separate orders in. One has been dispatched and the other one has been cancelled due to a pricing error.
