How to Make a Spit Roast

The Complete Guide (Updated)


Frequently asked questions

What load can these motors take?

You have a choice of two motors with weight ratings of 65kg and 80kg. The motors have actually been tested way past these weights and did not fail. We do want them to last you a very long time, so we came up with above weight ratings just to be safe. Our customers have roasted whole pigs and deer with these motors.

Have these motors been tested?

Yes, the motors have undergone extensive testing under extreme weight loads for over two years before being released on the market. The testing went up to 120kg on a solid stainless bar weighing 10kg plus an offset weight of 5-7kg and the motor still did not fail. This makes them the world’s most powerful spit roast motor for its size, made right here in New Zealand.

Is there a warranty on my motor?

Yes, there is a 3 year return to base warranty on every motor. This means that if your motor stops working due to manufacturer’s fault we will fix it or replace it.

Are these motors waterproof and fireproof?

The short answer is no. While cooking your spit under some light drizzle might be fine, we definitely don’t recommend throwing the motor in a washing machine! Also, please keep it away from open flame as it will damage the components inside.

Can I run this motor off a battery?

Yes, you can connect the motor’s power supply to your bike or car battery which makes it perfect for those camping trips. You can also use it with solar panels, if you are the environmentally friendly type.

Can the motor speed be adjusted?

Technically, yes. You can buy a separate adapter with variable power output and use that to tweak the rotations per minute (RPM) of the motor. Unfortunately, we don’t stock these adapters so you will need to get that separately.

What are the motor specifications?

Please click here for detailed specs on each motor.

Do you offer international shipping?

Yes, we can ship to another country for an additional NZ$40 per motor. Shipping to Australia is free.
