Surely there is a manufacturer's data sheet for this thing, either paper or virtual?

Surely it has the manufacturer's telephone number thereon?

Surely telephone use training is still carried out at the parent's knee?

The reduction for the number of stages required depends on the out. The link you supplies shows it has a 9.7:1 Ratio.

No it doesn't reverse direction,

Here is a 3 stage reduction inline reducer, you can see that the first and second stage how the motion is transferred to the third stage. You can see the reduction through the drive train.

Even if what you speculate is true about shaft output rotation. Most motor rotation can be reversed so to cause the gear reducer to change rotation. Just Have to watch and make sure the gear reducers input rotation isn't specified.

It depends on the specific type of design (external-tooth gears only, planetary gears, "cycloidal" drive, etc.)

But then, why does it matter? Just use a reversible motor.

yes, for rotation, there really isn't a problem here.

It's a ground drive. Driven off the axle. No motor involved.

Something has happened to delete the OP. The original link looked like a C-face motor flange rather than an SAE axle-mount type, but I'm not sure and no longer can see it.
