  1. Tom Cason

    Motor was a quick install plug and play. I ordered a spare to use in future.
    BH-USA is great to deal with easy to order and very QUICK to ship – exceeded my expectations.
    Motor was shipped with mounting bolts and replacement key a unexpected bonus.

    Excellent product. Easy conversion to 110v. Very quiet

  3. Perfect fit and worked as advertised


  4. We put in hundreds of lifts a year, we have never seen a better motor

  5. Kept it simple and it was easy. Rather than mix and match old wiring harness and switch, I opted for a pre-wired motor. New bolts and pulley made installation super easy. Delivery was fast. The old motor sounded like a coffee grinder. Glad I didn't wait for a motor failure. There is nothing FUN about not being able to lift your boat up or down from your boathouse.


  6. Just got it, and it works as to be expected so far. I am glad to see that it is all-enclosed, as we have a problem with dirt dobbers getting inside the motors here in Florida. Wiring was made easy with the provided booklet and diagrams. Thanks for including SS bolts BUT, I used regular mild steel bolts because SS will cause corrosion of the dis-similar mild steel it is in contact with. Four wire nuts would be a nice inclusion. Just sayin.

  7. I purchased this motor to replace my old 3/4hp century. I wired the motor and rewired my switch exactly as shown in the included manual. went to start it up and the motor ran very poorly and was not achieving the spec rpm resulting in the lift lowering each side at different rates. The capacitor ended up blowing after just a very short time. I looked at the return policy and it seems incredibly difficult to return any product that has been opened. I would recommend looking elsewhere for a replacement motor.


  8. It needs gaskets every where and a cab for the electrical connection to make it as water resistant as possible because it is around water

  9. Great motor but switch was wired in reverse. This was easy to install and ready to go right out of the box. By far the most complete solution with great switch and breaker already included and fully wired.

  10. Moyer works great

  11. Motor arrived early. Included 4 stainless mounting bolts, nuts & lock washers. Also included a drive shaft keyway. Product booklet contained "detailed" wiring instructions. I would definitely purchase from this company again.


  12. I will recommend bh-usa 100% to everybody, I was 100 % satisfy with everything

  13. Just what I needed, and I liked that it was all wired up and ready to go.

  14. Works like a champ!

    Dave M

  15. Works as describe and a direct replacement


  16. Been buying these for the last 10 years , I get about 4 to 5 years out of them due to the salt life living .One day I would like to up grade to the stainless steel but I understand the inside components are the same .
