I've been busy for the last six weeks or so getting a used US Tower HDX-572
ready to go up. I tested the raising motor yesterday, and found that it is
dead. The motor itself is part of the US Tower MDPL-1000 lift apparatus
that is attached to my tower.
I cross referenced the Leeson Electric motor - part number 1100018.00 (this
is the motor that has failed) on Google. I found several vendors online
that sell the same motor with seemingly identical specs. I'm no electric
motor guru, but I know there are various engineering considerations. Does
anyone have any words to the wise as far as ordering one of these available
motors? Does anyone recommend anything else, and/or have success stories
from past experiences with failed tower motors?
I'm very appreciative of any assistance that can be rendered.
