If you coudl get a GFCI outlet, or GFCI breaker it would tell you if the circuit is tripping because something is going to ground (the GFCI would trip, the main breaker should not), or if the motor is overamping (mean breaker trips, GFCI does not).

If you check all your connections to ensure they aren’t exposed or loose enough that they vibrate and touch (if the hot touches the neutral, it would pop the breaker right away, or if the hot is touching the ground someplace it could do teh same and/or trip the GFCI), and everything is OK, then the problem is certainly in the motor.
