"Installed motor on belt drive drum sander and when I applied power, it kicked the circuit breaker in the electrical panel. I checked the wiring for any physical shorts and found none. tried again with the same results. Motor is shorted."

"This motor runs quiet and has plenty of power to turn the shaft of the 24 inch drum sander I use it for. Great product."
