I have a motor from a treadmill and I would like to know what size wire to ues to get the most amp/volts out of it?
What I have is a 17.2 amps ,7099 rpm ,25 c , calss b 2 1/2 hp @ 130 VDC CW rotation. With a drill motor attached I can get 21 v out of it ,today it went into the air a top a 21ft pole and we had a storm come through I had hooked a extention cord to it so I cold get to it on the ground and I was not even getting 5 volts out of it in the height of the wind. It is a 50ft orange12 or 14 gage wire cord . Its hooked up to a blocking dioed that a brother of mine helped me wire via the internetand my load was a 12v battery with 5.95 v charge in it and now it has none. What do I need to do to make it right?
