Brad – Thanks so much for the input. The FM50-101 looks like a good solution. With that said, what other components would I need to complete the electrical portion of the swap? You mentioned a starter…do you have any recommendstions? If I were to go this route, is it as simple as wiring the motor to the VFD, and then wiring that to the starter, or is there more to it than that? Are there any references you can point me to that might illustrate the process?

Mike – Thank you for your input. If I were to swap the motor, I assume that a 3/4 – 1 hp motor that operates at 1725rpm would suffice, as that would be equivalent to achieving the cutterhead speed provided by the existing 3-phase motor? If that’s the case, I assume I could continue to use the existing motor pulley, correct?

If I do go the route of a motor swap, I would likely select a dual voltage 120/240V model so that I could make use of it once I choose to do my electrical upgrade. Are there any issues with that?

Finally, you mentioned the need to upgrade the electrical for a motor swap. Any chance you could point me in the right direction?

Many thanks to you both for your help. Keep it coming!
