Many R4511 owners like their saw but they wish it had more power.
For quite while I have been looking for this information, finally I just got from SteelCIty.If you want to properly mount a 3 HP motor in your saw here a list of the parts you need and the prices:

The motor is OR70428 and I believe it will work. There are more items to change for it to become a true 3hp system. However, you may be able to use just the motor and change the plug. I have pasted the info below. I had this saved for the other machines listed in RED and just added the R4511 after reviewing the manual briefly. We take visa or MC and I have included the CC form for use by email or fax.
Item Code (Part #) quantity Serial # Product Number (Internal Information) override unit price
change 1.75 to 3 hp 35600 35903 35911 only and R4511
OR70428 1 3 HP MOTOR $349.99
OR70148 1 3HP Pulley wider style pulley to match motor and belt $14.99
OR91762 2 1/4×1/4” set screw for larger pulley .99 each $1.98
OR70144 1 spacer fits onto blade arbour shaft to accommodate pulley $6.99
SC10391 or OR70147 1 belt multi V belt for new pulley and motor $14.99
OR70143 1 3HP Pulley wider style pulley for the arbour $11.99
OR70154 1 spring spring to fit between motor mount and bracket $7.99 parts total $408.92 shipping $64.99 total cost $473.91
