Marx Hectoperm 12 volt Motor Wanted.
« on: January 03, 2008, 03:54:44 »
     ...Hi Guys...

I have posted this request on other forums but no success so far so I will try on here...I know a few of you guys are also on these forums & have seen this before...

I am looking for a second hand12 volt Marx Hectoperm Motor to match up with one I already have to install in a Tug/Workboat that i am currently building...

I am also on the lookout for Marx Decaperm parts to repair or build one from the  motors & parts that i already have...

If anyone can help me please get in touch...

 ...Best Regards...Norry...

Norry,

I found new ones on the net after a quick look ....

But nothing secondhand

Zero results came up on UK and US ebay which is rare !

       ...Hi Bigford...

I personally consider the Marx Decaperm or the larger Hectoperm to be the best motor you can fit in a model boat...

I first bought one in 1980 & fitted it into a  4 foot model of "SA WOLRADDE WOLTEMADE" & I have loved these motors ever since...

Its a true saying "They Dont Make Them Like They Used To"...These Motors have been around for years & its never been changed...

I guess they are so pricey due to the quality...There are loads of more modern alternative motors but I still like these ones...

I personally like the sound of the gearbox whining away like a turbo charger when its working...Its also handy when you can hear how much power you are applying as well as seeing it...

...Best Regards...Norry...
