Can't get just one

I now have something to turn with the 8/1. Like potato chips, you cant stop with just one. Actually the second one will be used on an irrigation project.

Very nice -

I'm just curious about the label, it looks like it says 12 lead, but single phase 120/240?  I would have guessed 3 phase?

I'm not afraid to take anything apart.
I am sometimes afraid I'm not going to get it back together.

Almost all the common Marathons are 12-lead 3-phase rated but can be reconnected single-phase. You just have to de-rate the machine by 33%, and in this case, Marathon has already done that.

A local electrician gets them for us. I am not sure where he gets them.

We are now running two units produce 3 phase high voltage for irrigation systems and will soon add a third. The gen head for the 8/1 could be "borrowed" and rewired for the irrigation systems in an emergency. So my toy will serve more than one purpose. That is my story, and I am sticking with it.......
