DC carbon brushes are a little bit more tricky than AC carbon brushes as the grade of carbon can vary so much and it is important to get this correct as resistances are different and too much or not enough power going through the brush can damage the motor. Solent Tools recommend where possible to just post a sample of the brush for us to match. Carbon brushes for DC motors need to be right to avoid time and possible future problems especially in car or marine motors.

For urgent requests or just for ease email us a photo of the DC carbon brush and include voltage, amps or wattage, dimensions (using a vernier or micrometer) and we will do our best to get a quote back to you as quickly as possible (if at all possible).

We have a small stock range of DC carbon brushes for starter motors, dynamos, golf trolleys, mobility scooters, car heaters and bow thrusters. If it is not something we stock we can normally make them and our minimum order is 1 pair and no maximum.

Our price will about 10% more than many on line stores because we know that our Uk made Bow Thruster carbon brushes will out last imported carbon brushes and increase the maintenance period between changing your bow thruster carbon brushes. When a motor costs 100’s of pounds to replace why try and save a tenner.
