What do you mean? Small motors are replaced rather than rebuilt. Big motors are rebuilt.
Lets say to rewind/rebuild the motor it cost $4500. Motor is 20 years old.
A replacement motor is $11,000.
Compare the KW's used to see what you are saving by going with a newer more efficient motor. Also to find out how long it will take to pay yourself back on the new purchase.
Validation that the right decision is made.
