Auspit (http://www.auspitbbq.com) owners appreciate the strong torque and the slow turning speed. While one can be used to improve the overall balance, these motors virtually do away with the need of a counterweight.
Now for the first time these same motors are being made available to the general public. They have a bracket on the housing which allows them to slide onto most any traditional BBQ rotisserie bracket. Many people have found the Auspit motor to be superior to even the AC motor that comes with many home BBQ rotisseries.
Additionally, many hobbyists are known to use Auspit battery-powered motors for non-BBQ uses such as fly fishermen for making their flies, target shooters who use these motors at remote shooting ranges, photographers doing moving time-release shots and other uses that are hard to fathom.
The motors are designed to turn up to 18 pounds and run up to 90 hours when being used with the Auspit system and (two) heavy-duty D-sized batteries. With other systems, they may perform fine turning up to 25 pounds. Performance with other systems may vary, but the Auspit rotisserie motors are known to last even over 120 hours when used with the Auspit Rotisserie.
The motors come in two models: a black powder-coated casing (DM) and a stainless steel casing (DMS). The black one is $39 and the stainless one is $49. Both have a one year warrantee.
