What are the differences between........
What are the differences between a air compressor rated motor vs a farm duty rated motor? I have a 5hp motor with a 184T frame, single phase, 1740 rpm and its for a Quicy air compressor. Just wondered if you could give me some specifics.
Farm duty motors are specially designed for farm duty applications requiring high starting torque and moderate starting current. Standard features include v-ring slinger on drive end and opposite drive end, reversible shaft rotation, and manual overload protection for operator safety.
A compressor duty motor is more robust, with high starting torque and heavier start windings, to handle the extra heat from continuous high load operations.
