    Hobart H600 replacement motor??

    Hi, I'm working on a Hobart H600 that's 415v 3 phase but using an inverter to run on 230v (uk) single phase. The h600 is underpowered normally and with the inverter it really struggles. Has anyone experience with sourcing and changing the motors out on these mixers? Thanks Adam.

    When using a phase converter you need to have the single phase voltage the same as the motor voltage .You cannot use 208V as your supply voltage for a 415V motor. Whats your ML as most motors are multivoltage and if so need to be wired for 208V

    It's not underpowered, it's just not a good dough machine.

    Find a motor shop near you. They can really work wonders. They should be able to rewind your motor to work with your circumstances. If they cannnot, chances are they'll be able to source something to make it work. You'll probably pay good money for this service tho.

    Thanks for the response, I've heard from several people that rebuild h600s that a 2hp motor can be used successfully. Have you any experience with this? Here is a photo of one such mixer.
