  • need 3 hp 3phase mtr

    I need to build a rotary phase converter and need a 3 hp motor for an idler.

    I'll buy the motor and also drive up to 100 miles to pick it up. I live South and East of Rockford Illinois.

    Email me at [email protected] if you have a motor

    So much to learn, so little time

    You can get a brand new one, cheap.

      I got a ten hp sitting under my gang box. It's a armload, I guesstimate about eighty pounds.

      Heavy rascal.. Like mentioned.. you can get a cheap one local, call the motor shops. (probably as cheap as shipping)
      Sometimes plants don't pick them up after rewinding.

      I have paid $5 a hp locally for used ones.
      Excuse me, I farted.
