Appalachian power hammer motor problems

Recommended Posts

I cant tell how heavy the ram is but doesnt look heavy enough to need more than the 1 hp I had a 60 pounder that ran fine with a 3/4 hp motor. if its the spring harmonics speed or spring stiffness needs to be looked at. 

Definitely increasing hp would stop the thermal trips but wont address the underlying issue if harmonics are an issue.
