    Default DoAll 16-3 Vertical Bandsaw with Hydraulic Table Motor Voltage Question

    I have come across a DoAll 16-3 bandsaw with the hydraulic table. The data plate says it's 440V. I am looking for information on whether the motor is dual voltage or not. The seller sent me pictures but the only numbers on the motor are F106/3830, MG1000G27. The serial number is 124-59276 so it's a 1959 year model. Does anyone have information on this version saw.

    Thanks in advance.

    Will

    Here's a link to the manual...…

    I'm pretty sure the motor will be dual voltage? All of the DoAll saws I have had were dual voltage.

    Most of the DoALL motors are GE 12 wire motors. The field coils can be wired in series (high voltage) or in parallel (low voltage). Pull the wiring cover and count the wires if all else fails. Further, there should be a wiring diagram on the inside of the cover.

    I also have a 16-3 from 1964, the motors drive and coolant are dual voltage. The welder may be single voltage? I have both 480 and 240 three phase, mine is powered 240 due to the welder situation.

    Also, in case you didn't know, you need to run the varidrive speed down to the minimum (while the motor is turning) to be able to shift the trans as there is a lockout.

    This is great guys! Thank you so much. I am finalizing the deal now. The seller did open the motor cover and there are 12 wires so this is dual voltage as you stated. More to learn about this machine but it looks to be in decent shape from the pictures. Thanks again!

    All are 240V single phase, however you achieve that

    Thanks Steve. I am going to wire for 240. May have to reach out to you wiring configuration if I can find a diagram.

    The welder will have a DBW number and there are a number of schematics

    Here is a DBW 15 - possibly too low res to read

    Does anyone have a copy of the manual for the 16-3 with my features and possibly the electrical schematic that I can get?

    I have both manuals, but I got them from a basic web search. If you are not able to find them let me know
