Brian's Preferred Gear for the Revolution Build

Buy these items to complete the Revolution – the motor and VFD are not the cheapest but this is my preferred setup.

      Requirements for a motor that will work with the Revolution: 

      • TEFC
      • NEMA 56C (this is the bolt pattern)
      • 3600 RPM
      • 3 Phase (no need for 3 phase power the vfd will convert single phase to 3)
      • 2HP (Preferred)
      • 220v
