Again, during replacement of the motor cleanliness is vital. We recommend that prior to removing the Motor a power washer is used to thoroughly wash around the entire drive system.
Important: "Lock Out" the host machine as per the instructions in the host machine's operation manual. This will ensure that the host machine cannot be moved while this procedure is being carried out.
Warning: A motor may weigh as much as 30kg therefore care should be taken to avoid crushed or nipped fingers or toes.
