This question has been talked about before on the web but I heard yes and no. Is a 1hp motor powerful enough for a kmg? Iam just wwondering if the ones that say you need 2 or 3hp go by the theory that you can never have enough power or if it is really necessary. I say on a YouTube video the guy using a 1hp harbor freight motor and he couldn't stall it out. I want to order a motor and vfd this week but don't want to get bigger than necessary obviously cause of cost but I also don't want to cheap out and regret it later. Here's what i'm considering. http://www.automationdirect.com/adc...ts_(115_-z-_230_-z-_460_-z-_575_VAC)/GS2-11P0 And http://www.automationdirect.com/adc...-Phase_Motors,_56C_(0.33_-_2HP)/MTR-001-3BD18 Also a 6" drive wheel. Does anyone or has anyone used a 1Hp motor and how was it. I would love to hear any and all input. Thanks.
