    If you have a lot of #3 MT accessories, you may want this option.  Otherwise, stick with the stock #2 as almost all woodturning accessories are #2.

    $ 150.00
    Upgrade your Scout to a 1.5 HP motor, wired to your choice of 110 or 220 volt.  If you’re going to routinely turn larger work outboard or just want the extra power for material removal, you’ll want to select the 1.5 HP upgrade.

    2 HP upgrade (220 volt)

    $ 220.00
    If you’re just working over the bed and plan to keep your work to less than 16” diameter, you’ll probably be OK with the 1.5HP.  Also, if you only have access to the 110 volt electricity, you’ll be restricted to the 1.5HP. But if you have access to 220 and if you plan on taking the gap out and turning larger work, get the 2HP.   It is expensive to make this change later on, as both the motor and the drive need to be swapped out.

    3 HP Upgrade (220 volt)

    $ 330.00
    Why get the 3 HP?  It’s a little like buying a pickup with the big V8 for those times you pull your RV over the mountains.  Because you will occasionally turn big wood with this lathe, you will appreciate the extra power. It’s also much cheaper to order this option with the lathe, as you are just paying the incremental cost between the 2HP and 3HP.  If you order the 2HP and later want to change, both the motor and drive need to be replaced, and the retail value of these two items combined is greater than $1,000.
