Though possible, this would be a difficult wire to run. I would either have to dig a new ditch, or using some existing conduit and a very long, convoluted run, I might be able to make that happen. ...

Cool. You right, I was thinking of a motor generator, which I assume is the same as a rotary phase converter. I'll check the price on a VFD. Thanks.
