    If any way possible get a 3 phase motor and a VFD, you will be much happier.
    I copied a KMG with the belt drive, single speed motor. I converted to a VFD drive and drive wheel run on motor shaft. I like it much better now.

    Absolutely true. Variable speed on a belt grinder is a huge advantage that most people never realize.
