This attachment uses an 8" contact wheel which makes the attachment more compact. The 8" wheel also produces a significantly higher belt speed, in the same way the expander wheels do, and fit any 1/2 hp or larger grinder with a shaft at least 2-1/2" long and 5/8" in diameter. We also stock a left hand version. We have a wide range of 2x48" belts that fit this unit. Baldor 1/2hp or 3/4hp grinder 3600rpm motor is recommended.
