What do you guys know about the 34-802? Looking at one without a motor. What motor should it have? Is it a unisaw?

Thanks in advance.

I like mine, quite a bit actually. Yes, the 34-802 is a Unisaw. Mine has a single phase TEFC 3hp Marathon motor. I have no idea how many different makes of motors but it should have been available with 3 or 5hp single phase or 5hp three phase.

The guy is asking 350 for a saw with no motor. Sounds too steep. How much is a motor.

Figure about $300-$500 depending on where you get it. Might be able to find a used one a bit cheaper. If it has an IEC type starter, you should be good… if it has a NEMA type starter, then you may have to mess with it as well.

$350 certainly doesn’t sound cheap but might be fair if it’s in really good shape, do you have any pictures? You might be able to get a three phase motor pretty cheap and run it with a VFD offering a lot of control over what the motor can do.

There is a guy in St. Louis selling a 3hp single phase motor for $300, although the ad has been out there for a couple months, so it might be gone by now. You will also need to get a pulley and probably a new set of belts as well (roughly another $100). Throw in some new arbor bearings, wiring and other misc. stuff and you are looking at close to $800 or more by the time you are done. Not a bad price compared to new, but you can find complete Uni’s for that price or less that would not involve as much work.

Cheers,
Brad

There are 2 types of 34-802. I have a type 2. I think the dust door in the cabinet is the major difference. Mine does not have a dust door, I wish it did. I think dust collection would be better with it.

I’m not sure of the year of the change. Mine is 1989.

The guy I bought mine from spilled Coca Cola into the original 3 hp motor, and replaced it with a 4 hp Leeson. I got an old saw with a new motor, his wife stayed on his case to get a Sawstop.
