Hey guys I've got a speedaire 30 gallon unit with a 3 phase motor on it at my shop and I'm transporting to the house for home use and I'm looking for a 115/240 v motor to put in place of the 3 phase motor. Any recommendations? Here is the link of the compressor that I have.

I found this 2 hp 120/240 motor on craigslist and it looks like a good possible swap candidate but I am going to be operating it on 115 volt and just wondering if this motor can handle the speedaire pump. It's rated at 1750 rmp's. I could buy a motor that is rated at 3450 rmp but it's new at grainger at lot more expensive.

The price on this craigslist motor is right but I just want to make sure this is going to run my pump and not strain the motor too much or anything. I've got a welder and fabrication skills as well as some minor electrical making a motor bolt up and run is not an issue for me. What I don't know is if this motor is properly sized for the pump. It seems like it should be fine. It's the motor that came on the Dewalt D55580 twin 8 gallon tank emglo type compressors. My boss used to have one when I was doing construction for him and that was a solid compressor.
Anyhow any help or input is appreciated. Thanks
