The NEMA T-frame motors are IP55 rated and have cast-iron end housings with rolled steel bodies. Farm Duty motors are designed for applications requiring high starting torque and moderate starting current and are used to power agitators, augers, compressors, conveyors, feeders, hay hoists, grinders, blowers and for other general-purpose heavier materials applications.
