    I need to replace the electric motor on my e47 pump.

    I'm looking for information or opinions on the reliability / quality of aftermarket or rebuilt motors vs. an oem Meyer motor.

    Is it worth the extra $$ for Meyer brand parts?

    The oem motors are of far better quality/reliability than most of the aftermarket stuff. Just another instance where you get what you pay for. :nod:

    Thank you for the reply. That's kind of what I figured, I believe the Meyer motors are only $30-$50 more, not a whole lot for some extra reliability.

    The difference is actually closer to $100, $80 vs $180...but still worth it. wesport

    Check angelos supplies.com The aftermarket motor is 49.99 and the oem motor is 155.99 not to mention they are cheaper on almost every plow part that I have needed.

    you get what you pay for. The $100 saving goes away real fast if you have to change the Aftermarket motor in the middle of a storm. If you buy aftermarket, use your savings to buy a back up.

    Thanks again for all the replies. I just recieved an oem motor from Angelos. I hope it is indeed a meyer motor, the one I was sent has a bare galvanized metal housing and no markings other than a part number. I kind of assumed the oem unit would at least have yellow paint or the meyer name on it somewhere.

    What was the cost of the motor?

    The cost was $155.99 plus tax and shipping for a grand total of about $180.

    My 1993 dodge truck service manual says both bosch and prestolite motors were used and described the bosch as flat topped and having no markings (that's what I got). I installed the motor and it works fine, just would like to be certain I recieved what I paid for.

    For $155.00 I'd say you did get the genuine Meyer motor as the aftermarket motors cost less than half that.

    Your physical description of the motor sounds like a genuine Meyer motor as well, the aftermarket motors are normally black epoxy coated. So I'd say you got what you paid for..
