What? Electric motors are not listed on the Harbor Freight website?
Its true. You can’t even search the website to find an electric motor. But they do sell them. I found this out the hard way and had to e-mail Harbor Freight to find out how to look them up on the website. I surmise they don’t sell too many motors this way.
Anyway, here is the setup. You have to download the owner’s manual for one of the electric motors to find the Item Number of the motor you want. You then search the item number on the Harbor Freight website. Listed in the owner’s manual are the following motor sizes: 1/2 Hp, 1 HP, 1 1/2 HP, 2 HP, 3 HP.
To download the electric motor manual go here: http://manuals.harborfreight.com/manuals/68000-68999/68302.pdf
Looking over the prices, they seem to be about 25% less that other motors of similar type and size listed at other sources.
Anyway, the mystery is solved and if you want a HF electric motor, here is how you have to look it up. You had better save the link to the motor manual as it is almost impossible to obtain.
Strange, isn’t it.
