Spur Gear vs. Planetary Gear

The two most common setup of DC motor gearbox are spur and planetary. Spur type gearbox are simpler, less expensive, and work best for low torque applications. Torque capacity of spur type gearbox is limited because each gear in the train bears different load. Planetary gearboxes, in contrast, share equal load over multiple gears, making them more durable for high torque application.
