    Just wondering if anyone's running a 1 HP motor on their Dakota v rather than the 1/2 HP it is supplied with.

    Really no need to go bigger hp. Most of the time the half and 1hp motors run 1725rpm. I use the same motors for our ventilation systems in our hog barns and the only time the 1hp works better is in a place there may be more torque needed. But the fleshing machine doesnt need much.

    I never did get to try it with the 1/2 HP motor but it seams to go alright with the 1 HP on it. Certainly dosent bog down that's for sure.
