I picked up these at the Barrie swap meet a while back, guy wanted $25. each, I got them for $25. for both.
Unknown if they work or not, 1 of them the fan turns by hand.
They weigh 23 and 25lbs. Both are 36volt units, 1 says 1100watts.
If I can get them working I thought they would be a nice addition to the EGT or Electric Massey since they are both 36volt systems.
Surprisingly they are almost the same colour as the EGT200.

Anybody know anything about these, good bad, how well they work?

I believe so 36volt motor drives a 120volt generator, pic says Motor-Generator.

Somehow I missed this one when it first was posted too. I just did some quick research and discovered that the original manufacturer, Applied Motor, Inc. was bought out by Pacific Scientific. Last year, a UK company called Meggitt bought them out. I did manage to find some general information about the Redi-Line generators, your model was not included in the users guide. That said, I believe that there will still be some info in there that you can use.

It is basically a DC to AC converter, but not a solid state unit that we usually call an inverter. It performs the same function though. I hope that the information helps you figure it out. Keep us posted.

Sorry for the late response, no I haven't tried them yet, both motors in them turn freely, that's about all I know.

Good find. Any interest in parting with one of them? Looking for a 36v rotary inverter for my elec-trak.

I think I'm going to hang on to both of them, would love to find one that has 110volt AC output as mine are 110volt DC.

Are you sure about that? That's a 110V AC plug on the end of the one in the picture. If it were other than 110V AC I'd think it would be well marked to prevent damage to anything that was plugged in to it.
