Clutch Motors 1/2 hp, 1725 RPM, 110 volt are the tried and true standard for the production sewing machine industry. The motor runs continuously and the sewing machine is started with a treadle activated clutch. A heal operated brake provides for instant stops.
Sailrite modifies these motors by adding a smaller 1 3/4-inch motor pulley to slow the top end speed of the machine to 900 stitches per minute (normal speed is 1950 stitches per minute). The smaller pulley also increases low speed power and machine responsiveness.
At the back of the motor there are toggles to switch from 110-volt to 220-volt power, as well as a switch that allows you to reverse the direction the motor spins, allowing the motor shaft to rotate clockwise or counterclockwise. The motor also features a 6-volt, 2-prong outlet for appropriate devices.
Included with this motor is the On/Off switch panel with wiring to the motor as well as the hardware necessary to mount the motor to a Commercial Stand Table.
