half price of competition but still overpriced for quality of item
on December 26, 2011
This motor was half the price of the other ones I found online. Even then I felt it was a lot to ask for a motor that would only be used a few times a year.
The construction quality was really poor. I went to attach the motor and noticed a rattling inside the housing. I thought it was an extra screw that had fallen in during assembly. When I took the housing apart I found it was TWO of the four motor mount screws that had come loose.
Put it all back together and tested it. Two speed switch gives low speed consistently. On high speed mode it jumps between low and high speed unless you hold the button down. Bad switch quality.
I'm sending this back for a replacement. Hopefully the next one won't be a clunker.
I got the replacement unit yesterday. Switch works, no rattle in the motor. Wife has a smile on her face. As long as it doesn't wear out quickly I'm happy so I'll add another star.
