Default bench grinder upgrade

hey there,
I want to buy a good motor for my Festool bench grinder. I want to try my luck and find a used motor in a good condition. Guys, please advise what motor characteristics to search?

????? I'm trying to understand your question. You don't just want to buy a Bench grinder in a store?

I found one this summer but it is a TEFC style. Traditional like most.
I only use it for wire wheel. 2 courses. Medium and kinda rough.

I've never seen a Festool bench grinder.

My budget is quite limited, so I will be buying a used motor.
First of all, I want to decide upon the basic characteristics. Here are the motor specifications.
It is not TEFC, but maybe it is not so important for the grinder.
What can you s y about the specs? Can I find the motor with such specifications?

I figured as much, but was waiting for more info or another post to be sure.
The second post confirmed it and then I thought the Mods would take action.
