    Not an air compressor motor. I bought it new for the sole purpose of powering the dust collector. It is TEFC. At the same time, I bought another 7 1/2hp 1ph for my air compressor. It is also TEFC.

    Remote control for dust collector

    I used a magnetic starter with 120v coil and a cheap remote from amazon to operate a 7 1/2 hp dust collector. The remote turns the power on to the 120v coil therefore the magnetic starter turns the DC on.

Before bidding, I usually check with the IRS rep for that sale to find a rigger that will be loading at that site. I have made deals with the riggers to load. One even said that he would pallet...
