  • Motor prices

    Hi, What kinda price should I expect to pay for a 2hp 3phase motor for a mill or lathe? (in canada, BC, but elsewhere in canada would be helpful)

    both low end chinese prices (after s/h) and middle grade prices would be helpful.

    Brand new Italian about £80 in the UK, about $125 to $130 US.

      Used motors : Search the Seattle area (or your Vancouver area) Craigslist - set up an RSS feed to email you "motors". I don't pay more than $50 for a used 2hp decent brand.... Often a little exterior rust will knock that down to $10. Heck, I recently swapped my Chinese 2hp single phase for and "as new" Baldor 182T 3hp 3 phase, and he paid me another $25...

      Retail number are stupid - just there to let "distributors" show a big discount, or to snare the unwary. Pricing - look on the web at the usual suspects, and search ebay - many new or used motors sell for 10 -20% of "retail".


      Most motors you'll find are a standard IEC or NEMA size. However... you don't specify what frame you want. Many mills are not standard frames... like BP...

        Don't forgert ebay. I got a new 2hp industrial duty Siemens several years ago for $70. Most people can't use 3-phase motors, so they tend to appear on ebay with regularity.

            If I buy Italian they are usually Fimec, however some of the importers buy in bulk and get their own plates fitted with the company name on them.


            If you want a 2hp email me because I think I still have a few new old stock motors from when we built the ink mixers.

              I was quoted about $200.00 here in Ottawa last week for a Leeson. Fortunately I was given a brand new A.O.Smith in exchange for 400 lbs of shot. Duffy
