The original motor for a 34-444 table saw is a 1.5 hp motor when connected for 120 volts, but when you connect this motor for 240 volts it is a 2 hp motor.

Not all were that way… there were many that were just normal 1.5hp motors regardless of voltage.

That Baldor is a solid motor… but it is the wrong speed and has a different frame than the one on the saw. It would make a good motor for a band saw though… slap in some new bearings and it should be good for another few decades.
