A pre-wired DPDT reverse switch part number SWDPDT10A is included with this motor.
Due to its low speed and 12vdc features, this motor is ideal for a mobile rotisserie application. Other applications include display turntable, conveyor system, sign display, motorized fishing reel, and more.
For the rotisserie application, be sure to set up bearings specifically to hold up the weight of the meat so the motor is only to rotate the meat with minimum axial and radial loads. Also, flexible couplings are highly recommended for a direct-drive set up. Due to the nature of a BBQ rotisserie's high temperature environment, make sure the motor is placed far enough from the heat to prevent failures of the motor's mechanical or electrical components. A fire wall should be considered to protect the motor. This motor was tested with a 50kg (110lb) of weight with its 5rpm
speed at ease. The 50kg (110lb) weight is to simulate a 50kg (110lb) hog/pig that is traditionally roasted with an outdoor BBQ rotisserie set up. Thanks to its 12vdc motor, it is possible to run this motor with a 12v battery.
12VDC Gear Motor: 42 N-m (31 ft-lb) torque at 5 RPM. Permanent magnet stator. Overall envelope less shaft dimensions are 8.5 inches by 4.6 inches by 4.3 inches. Shaft dimensions are 15mm diameter by 50mm (2.0 inches) of length. The shaft is a D-shaft (shaft with a flat). Motor control is very simple. A center-off DPDT switch is included so the user simply leave the toggle at its center position for off, flip the toggle to one side for forward, and flip the toggle to other side for reverse.

I have not yet had an opportunity to assemble this into my application, but have test run it and it supplies impressive torque. No-load operation is about 0.75A at 12V, and even my 5A-limited power supply results in significant torque before motor stall. It is heavier than I was expecting. The coupling that was an add-on item fits very snugly. The only feedback for changes are my application specific needs which I can't hold makermotor on the hook for!
