  • JCP Motors and gearboxes

    Just wondering if anyone is using the motors and gearboxes JCP offers and if you do, did you buy outright or lease. Our current supplier does not want to warantee the motors and gearboxes so looking for another source. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
    Remember no one is perfect no matter how good we are!

    id just call around to some of the other dealers if no results there id call jpc and talk to them and see what they will do for you we havent gotten many things from jcp but as i remember we havent had any problems with them.

      we have one whole back end motor from JCP and so far so good, im not a fan of jcp parts, eccentric dizzy rollers that arent round for instance, hold the centre of the bearing and spin the plastic roller, its not injection moulded straight on the bearing and will not run smoothly, respot cell components give me trouble, have had to re-drill and all sorts (have photographs) i think they are getting better now, but i can now CHOOSE who supplies our parts, we're not tied to jcp

        In the last few years JCP's products have improved greatly and I do a lot of business with them. The service and prices are great and I rarely ever have a back order which is a plus. Also the lino duster cloth that they now sell does as good or better job than anyone elses product and it costs a lot less.
