I don't think so. I read the link and it says he used a 1/3 HP Motor.

What about this link? Only reason I am asking is because my motor is on its way.

I used this motor: https://www.surpluscenter.com/item.a...tname=electric

I don't try to start it with a full hopper; just flip the switch and pour it in. With wheat I can only pour in as much as is getting crushed. If it starts loading the hopper the motor will stop.

We use a 10" Schmidling mill and I'm very happy with that motor. You just have to know it's limits.

OK good!

I have no problem trying to figure out how to exceed them!
