Hey Sarge, sorry to hear of your burnout. I think one brand these days is as good as the next, however the frame size can be a deal breaker. Your Dayton 213 Frame has an inch and 3 eights shaft size. 184T has 1 inch and an eighth shaft. Each frame size has a different foot print and shaft height as well. Severe duty is a classification that usually designates a totally enclosed motor with provisions such as shaft seals and cast iron endbells , and an external cooling fan. Totally enclosed fan cooled is typically adequate for most compressor duty applications. If your motor/compressor combo has its own room, not exposed to sanding debree, and overspray open drip proof is usually all thats needed. Regal Bennoit now owns all the major motor companies except Baldor , that no longer exists. Hope this helps.
