I have a HR dust collector with the 2hp motor and it runs great. I was walking through and noticed that HF sells electric motors. Has anyone bought and used these motors . What opinions do you have about them and are they junk or a hidden gem?

I too, have the 2hp DC and a benchtop HF DP…hp unknown… and both have given me good service for about 10 years.
