I bought my 5SPL HP, Model# 116845, After researching a great deal. It was clear that the Leeson motor had the best price. After installing the motor and using the Rebuilt air compressor I realized, even though it was priced great, Quality was there. I use the rebuilt compressor daily, and at times it runs non-stop. It has performed awesome, and without a problem. This is not to mention the fact I am a hotline member, so I saved even more and got the motor shipped very quickly right to my front door.
Thanks Northern for making available great products, and great prices

Replaced the original motor with this one and it is working perfectly so far. My air compressor use is occasional so I don''t know if this motor would overheat as another reviewer suggested? That could be a compressor or electrical supply issue?
Unfortunately soon after replacing the motor my compressor tank developed a leak. When I do have the unit on it runs more than normal and has not has any problems.

Very nice motor. Built in the USA.....
Got delivery within 14 days, and that is great for a shipment to Canada. The last motor I had on my compressor was noisy, this one is quieter and does not seem to be working as hard. It came well packaged and it actually took me a few minutes to get it out of the packaging. Installed easily and needed no modification to my existing mounts. Overall I am impressed with the quality. I will review it again at 6 and 12 months. Absoutly the best value for the money, maybe a little more money then a China motor but....... much better quality. Horray for built in the USA. This motor has convinced me to shop more for Canadian and American built products.... You truly get what you pay for!

replacemink motor for compressor
I bought a 60 gallon upright compressor at one of the big box home center stores 15 some odd years ago, I used it for pneumatic nailers and spray finishing with conversion HVLP equipment in my cabinet shop .The motor finally went Tango Uniform on me six months ago .I purchased this motor at my local Northern store , it was in stock , easy to install and I believe it to be better than the motor that came with the compressor .I have had no problems and can reccomend this unit to those of you that need a split phase replacemink motor for your compressor .
