Farm duty motors are designed for applications requiring high starting torque and moderate starting current and are used to power agitators, augers, compressors, conveyors, feeders, hay hoists, grinders, blowers and for other general-purpose heavier materials applications.
In addition, IronHorse MTDP series open drip-proof three-phase motors range in size from 1 to 50 hp at 1800 rpm and 3 hp, 5 hp and 7.5 hp at 3600 rpm. Frame sizes are available from 143T to 326T.
