What is a Farm Duty Motor
Farm duty motors typically require a high starting torque and should be durable enough for harsh, outdoor environments. Often, farm duty motors come with a 1.15 service factor, allowing for short periods of overload. Because applications for ag motors are so diverse, manufacturers have developed specific motors for specific applications, such as auger drive motors or instant reverse motors.
Be sure to take note of the IP ratings for your motor, as this will determine what environment it’s intended for. For example, an IP44 motor can withstand water splashing on the motor and limits objects over 1mm from entering the motor. Verse an IP55 motor can withstand water projected from a low-pressure water jet and protects against dust.
These motors also typically come with sealed bearings to protect the motor from contaminants, which helps to extend the life of the motor.
