Compliance and Restrictions



A guard on the rotary switch protects against high-speed back-drive condition. The mounting flange assembles directly to the gearbox on auger-drive systems. The shaft extends beyond the fan guard for hand cranking. This motor is suitable as a replacement for Chore-Time, Cumberland, GSI, and other new and replacement OEM equipment.
