when a treadmill motor is 8cm diameter, do you think it´s not possible 2 hp?

Question: when a treadmill motor is 8cm diameter, do you think it´s not possible 2 hp?

Answer:

Dear Customer,

the real power of the motor depends on the motor diameter in most part and only a few for motor length.
Unfortunately, there's a big mess on the labels on the motors because some treadmill manufactures asked suppliers to write much more power than the real power.
Also most of the times it's not written if the power on the motor is peak power, continuous duty power, etc.

For this reason we must take into account the motor dimensions and not the motor label. Sometimes we remove the motor label to avoid customers asking why the label is different from their old motor.

For more details about different ways of calculating motor power, please see PDH Course E156 - Understanding Motor Nameplate Information page 19 / 20 (duty cycles + IEC class).
