Motor issue

  1. Oct 9, 2015 #1
    hi people,

    Im getting a motor but cant decide between baldor or leeson so Id figure I might try to ask

    Single HP
    1725 or 1800 RPM
    Three Phase
    TEFC preferred
    56C frame size

    Is just one of the brand names preferred with a smaller motor? III be shipping this to my place back home, when I go back so Id most likely order online.

    Welcome to PF!

    It would help if you talked more about its intended use and how you came to decide on Baldor or Leeson.

    Thanks jedishrfu,

    Actually, I need a general purpose motor, that would be universal in my garage.

    Im going to buy it online - theres nothing in 1800 RPM, its going to be 1725 RPM and I guess Ill pick it up from this place today (but Ive never heard of them, so Im a bit nervous)


    guys, can anybody advice something?
