The head motor I'm putting on will take 3.7amps and running the cross feed motor that runs 1.3amps that would bring me to a max draw of 5amps while just running the mill. So if I where to put an old compressor or any other machine that leaves me with only 1.8amps to draw on 3 phase if that. Am I reading into this right? I don't mind paying more . I just didn't know much about them but that's what he had said I needed and said I could run my shop on that. I'm thinking maybe I should step up to a 5hp . What are some of y'all's opinions?
I would do the 5 hp minimum. Your motors will be happier.
