I have acquired a used Stenhoj auto lift. It is powered by a (class A or B) 3 phase 220v 2.2 KW 3 HP AC motor. To run this in my garage I will need to purchase a single phase to three phase rotary converter.
The question is how big or what HP size rotary converter should I get for the 3 HP motor? I have been told by a supplier that I should step up to a 5 HP rotary converter. Is this necessary as these units are very expensive?
Man, I've got no idea. Maybe hit up a hardware store for help? Anybody else have some input?
Somewhat mentioned in your previous thread here.
I don't have a good answer, though. You might contact Stenhoj and see what they recommend.
5 HP would undoubtedly be better, but it might be a situation where 3 HP is just fine, or where 3 HP burns out in six months and you have to buy another 3 HP, which is probably more $$$ than buying the 5 HP one time.
Hope This Helps!!!
Anyone else have suggestions?

chokeI have been told by a supplier that I should step up to a 5 HP rotary converter.
Unless you think the supplier is untrustworthy, in which case you should find another supplier, I'd say you've got your answer.
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
