    Hi guys
    I'm not sure if anyone can answer this. I'm have being looking for a used 5
    hp single phase electric motor. The prices vary from $350 (new) to $550
    My question is are all motors the same if each motor turns at 1800 rpm then
    each should drive the same load right.

    if its 5 HP and they are same type of motor (Async Et) brush less
    AC type (non-universial) with the same RPM's then yes your all set.
    how ever there are some different starting types.
    you have the Capacitor start type and then you have the centrifugal
    type which uses a
    gravity switch to turn off high current boost starting coils that are
    offset to get the motor going in the correct direction.
