Keep equipment running with this general purpose motor. It features a capacitor-start, which is typically used in pumps, compressors, tools, conveyors, farm equipment, and industrial ventilators. It also features an open dripproof motor enclosure design, which is engineered to permit good airflow while resisting the ingress of dripping water. The vents are angled to prevent water from entering the enclosure from above. The motor's shaft also turns a cooling fan to help pull air through the motor.
