Just wanted to put this out there. I got a 5 ton AC system blower motor from Tom’s Mechanical a couple of months ago. I was going to build a dust filter system. 2 weeks later I found a RBI system on Craigslist that was really cheap. I got that one and now have the blower motor sitting on a shelf in the shop. If anyone wants it let me know. It’s not worth shipping since you can probably get one from an AC installer for free like I did, but if anyone in the DFW area wants it, Email me, Its free.

As I posted it’s a 5ton Ac unit so its really to large for my shop. but I know someonecould probably use it, here are the specs on the motor.

Actually 5 ton is very common here in Texas. Large houses and 100-108 (37-42C) degree summers and you can see why a 5 ton unit is used here. My house (3500 square feet) has 3, 2.5 ton units.

I would take a 5 ton unit in a second if I was close enough to come pick it up. Nice offer Dave.

Most residential blowers are going to be either 3 or 5 tons.

I put one in my garage about 12 years ago to help exhuast welding fumes. Does a great job of circulating air to keep it cooler in the summer too. These blowers would make a great dust collector system.
