When you need an AC motor that is reliable, economical and can ramp up quickly, you need one of our capacitor start AC motors. Whether belt drive or direct drive, these motors all get an extra start up kick from an onboard capacitor. Many of these are for general use such as in HVAC systems, power tools, air conditioners, washers & dryers, and compressors. Items vary by HP, RPM, phase, frame, motor design, mounting type and other considerations. For more, see our 3 phase AC motors, capacitor start/capacitor run AC motors, three phase motors, and AC speed controls.
