Came across a local opportunity I couldn’t pass up. Got a deal on this RAMCO 25” wide belt sander. Unloaded it yesterday. 15HP 25×75 belt. I’m trying to find a manual for it online, but have come up short. Posting this here in case anyone is able to find one, or has more information. Thanks

I should also add – I’ve been unable to locate a model number on the unit.

Hi Jim – yes it runs. It is 3 phase. I’ll need to look into VFD converter options.
I just got off the phone with the company. They are going to fax me some info they have on it.
