The only rust on these is a bit on the base and one or two other spots on the cap hold down bracket, but other than that they are pretty much spotless. They were scuzzy on the picture from sitting on the shelf. These were service repair stock and never were in service before I had them so they only have 20-25 brew sessions on them which means they've barely been broken in. These have sealed bearings so they don't need the normal quarterly oiling like some of the smaller motors do. They are 115V, not 230.
