Here's the Google info about the motor and its intended uses. Plus, it has a cool drawing of the base and pulleys while running a washing machine.


Fig 1 of the accompanying illustrations shows the new and compact electric suction cleaner made by the F Bissell Company of Toledo Ohio. The motor itself is provided with a sheave and mav be used to drive a washing machine as illustrated in Fig 2 or a buffer grinder ice cream freezer or other household machine requiring a small amount of power. The motor is rated at 1/3 hp and the outfit runs on rubber tired wheels with ball bearings. It can be carried about by a handle provided for the purpose or it can be moved about with almost no effort by pulling the hose. The hose used is especially large being 1 1/2 in. in diameter. This enables the suction cleaner to pick up without injury comparatively large articles. A 30 ft lamp cord is provided giving a circle of operation having a diameter of 60 ft. The hose is 10 ft long and the cleaner follows the operator readily running lightly on its rubber wheels. With each outfit are given a buffing wheel and an emery grinding wheel. The grooved pulley will enable direct connection to be made to any small machine to be driven at high speed. For slow speed washing machines ice cream freezers etc a countershaft and base as shown in Fig 2 are furnished. By removing the bag and transferring the hose to the bag outlet a blower can be made which is useful in many deep recesses where the suction tools cannot reach. Incidentally the blower can be used to furnish draft for the heating furnace or it will start into activity the circulation through a hot air register. The motor will operate either on alternating or direct current at from 100 volts to 125 volts. If alternating current supply is used the frequency may be from 25 cycles to 60 cycles, The manufacturer describes the motor as of the selective type not of the universal type as that term is generally interpreted. Special motors are provided for operation at 30 volts from storage battery direct current. Two speeds are provided where the motor is operated by alternating current but in case direct current is used only the switch point marked low is used.
