I am working on a project using a treadmill motor- 90v mc-60 board. I want to add a reverse and plan to do it with a DPDT rocker switch. I would like suggestions on which switch to get from digikey. Also, can reversing the motor be accomplished with a SPDT switch? thank you in advance!

DPDT switch or relay required, it is imperative that the manual switching is only done when the motor is at zero rpm.
The better option is DPDT with centre OFF if you can find one.
You require one that is rated at 15a at least.
