This is a simple plug and perform solution for the small shop operator. The advantage of three phase power is that your machine will last longer and operate with higher energy efficiency. Three phase power does not use more electricity than machines using single phase power. This also applies when using a phase converter - the average 10 HP phase converter runs on around 7 cents per hour of electricity.
