I believe those originally had a 1/2hp motor (#62-142).

i believe the 28-243 was supplied with 1/2hp, and the 28-283 was supplied with a 3/4hp motor.
The 28-243 had open frame stand, while the 283 had a close motor compartment.

They did come with the .5 HP motor, I think it was a Marathon motor with Delta nameplates.
