I have the main motor from a vacuum cleaner what can I do with it? Answered
The motor is very powerful. It runs off of 120 V AC. The cable that plugs into the wall runs electricity straight to the motor. It weighs about 3-4 pounds and has brushes. It has alot of torque. So much so that it will flip in the air to ~1.5 feet when it is first started. I believe it spins at perhaps 2000-3000 rpm though I'm not sure. This motor was the motor that powers suction in the vacuum cleaner. I would love if someone could tell me if I could either use it as an alternator (for pedal power electricity generation) or what I could use it as a motor for?
