Schwintek motors listed as hi-torque are for full wall slides, utilizing the triple track system. The hi-torque motors come with a 500:1 gear reduction and thus move much slower than standard torque motors with the 350:1 gear reduction. If the two series of motors are intermixed the slide will cock when moving. Front bunk and smaller slides all use the standard motors. There is no problem using two hi-torque motors on a small slide but the motors must be the same type to keep the slide from cocking when moving.
