Motor & vfd advice on belt grinder

I am going to build the Polar Bear Forge 2x72 belt grinder. The motor I am looking at is 2hp 3450 run by a 220v vfd.

Would there be a problem running the 2hp on the 220 outlet that is 25' away?

motor - Leeson
vfd - AC Tech

I don't think there would be a problem running the 2hp on the 220 outlet that is 25' away but maybe start using a VFD device. I usually buy Allen Bradley products, as I trust the quality they offer. They tend to be a little pricey, but I buy from websites that specialize in Surplus and Refurbished current and obsolete Allen-Bradley products. I recently found one I really like,, and you should totally try buying from them. The products are original, affordable, and the customer service is amazing as well. Hope you find what you're looking for!

Good morning, @TimzxX, welcome.
I'm going to suggest looking at the date of the initial post before replying. Chrish asked this question over 2 years ago, and I'd wager s/he either already has an answer or moved on to something else.
Also, if you click on the member's name, you will see when the last time they logged into the forum, and s/he hasn't been here for over 2 years.
Stay safe
