Question about Consew 226R-1
Is there any way possible to reduce the speed of a 226? I know you can feather the motor in and out, but I dont want to do that all the time. Has anyone ever changed the lower pulley or upper pully to reduce the RPM's at the head?
I know it is designed to go at at incredible pace, but just learning and getting into the trade, its sometimes frustrating that it "runs away" with such ease.
I recently have had the very same problem. I went to Ace Hardware and bought a pulley about the size of the drive shaft and put that on the motor. This reduced the speed nicely. Also, another thing that helped quite a bit is loosening the belt. I had it tight at first but when I loosened it, it is much easier to control the take off speed. Use your hand to slow the wheel as you start.
