FAQ

Question:

Can your grinder be horizontal?

Answer:

Yes our tilting chassis operates in vertical and horizontal on all attachments.

Question:

If I get the 1.5hp single speed motor can I get the variable speed later?

Answer:

The single speed motor is a single phase motor the variable speed drive requires a three phase motor. We can offer the 2hp motor with the VFD to you at a later time but you will need to swap to this 2hp motor.

Question:

What voltage do I have to have to run this grinder?

Answer:

Our 2hp with VFD option can run on both 110V and 220V. We ship the wiring kit with a 110V plug. We recommend a dedicated 20 amp 110v line for no power drop. With the proper plug and a 220V 20 amp line and the proper J1 setting inside the VFD. (FAILURE TO SWAP J1 SETTING TO 230V WILL RESULT IN FRYING VFD) you can also use 220V on your 2hp motor with VFD. Contact us if you have any questions.

Question:

Why does my grinder keep bogging down or stalling out on me?

Answer:

You likely have a lack of available amps on your electrical circuit. If you are using an extension cord you need to make sure it is rated for 20 amps or higher. If you are using a power strip you must make sure it is rated for 20 amps or higher. If you have to many lines plugged in at the same time to reduce the available amps on your circuit it will do the same thing.

Question:

Why does my GFCI outlet or breaker keep popping while using this grinder?

Answer:

The VFD does not play well with a GFCI circuit. If applicable in your location we recommend a dedicated non-GFCI circuit. If a dedicated non-GFCI circuit is not available then you must swap the J12 setting in VFD from 8k to GF1 or GF2. These settings are standard GFCI and extreme GFCI respectively. Contact us if you have any questions.

Question:

I wired my motor and VFD and it will not turn on, what do I do?

Answer:

The two main things people might miss are that the run/stop switch is a 3 pole switch meaning it must be pushed up to the run position and not just on the neutral position. Next if you are running 110V to the machine and did not move the J1 jumper from the 230V setting to the 115V setting the machine will not work. (no damage will be done to unit by this, it just will not work) You can also contact us and we will help troubleshoot with you.

Question:

Do I get less power if I wire 110V to the motor instead of 220V?

Answer:

220V gives you the full 2HP, 110V is provides ¼ less Horse Power. 95% of our customers still use 110V as it cannot be bogged down on the 5” drive we ship with the machine.

Question:

What is the difference between epoxy and super glue?

Answer:

Epoxy uses a resin and a hardener while super glue will begin to adhere without any mixing. For the strongest bond of our adhesives use G-flex. For a strong bond with limited time, use G5. For a more temporary bond use Starbond Super Glue, Starbond accelerate will cure the super glue almost instantly.

Our 2 by 72 tilting chassis with the 2HP motor with VFD
