Reindeer type motor with more torque

I am building a stirring witch prop like the one here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbwsIYIkPdI. I have a reindeer motor but it's not strong enough to move the head. The head is a mask with a Styrofoam mannequin head inside. any suggestions on a different motor that will mount to the pvc frame and have more torque than the reindeer motor?

That would likely be the same type of motor that is within your reindeer motor. Do you have a picture of your prop? A reindeer motor should have enough grunt to move a foam head and mask. :)
Yeah, I suspect I will need to get a better motor. It does sound like the gears are "grinding." The hard part will be trying to mount that heavy wiper motor to the vertical pvc pipe. They don't seem to have any mounting screw holes.
If you decide to go with a wiper motor and need help with a PVC friendly mount, we have one.


It is very easy to install and very secure. We also have longer wiper motor drive arms. :)
