    I assembled the RPC from American Rotary today, it took a bit of time. I purchased the optional 20A 3ph receptacle, Square D breaker to protect the band saw this will power, the optional mounting kit to mount the box to the idler motor vs on a wall, the higher quality rubber feet for the idler motor, and a molded twist lock extension cord off Amazon for the single phase power in, I cut the female end off the cord.

    Here it is complete!

    Here's how it ships, you assemble and wire it.

    American Rotary does build a really clean unit. They have been in the business a long time and have it together.
    Everyone that has read my posts knows that I build these as well. But that being said, if I was buying one these folks would be the first ones I would talk to.

    You will need a shop crane for that, or a helper.

    I have been lifting weights for 35 years now and was a competitive bodybuilder & powerlifter back in my day. That motor is nothing but a dumbbell without a handle. :congratulate:
