"Great motor at a great price, although not drop in, some drilling was required to mount, otherwise stronger, quieter, and easier starting than original OEM motor."

Best motor for the money !!

"I went ahead and purchased this motor to use on a 2 stage air compressor. I figured it might not preform very well, but would do the job since it wasnt going to be total continuous duty. But the amp draw and temp of the motor was perfect after running under a load for well over an hour, so overall was very impressed as this motor runs the same as the 600-700 dollar motors. Been using it for more of continuous duty than I first thought... GOOD"
