answer 2
This motor is reversible by switching the positive and negative feed. The motor MUST come to a complete stop prior to flipping the switch. An electric braking mechanism may be required for rapid switching. As for torque, these Leeson motors are probably plenty strong enough to move your 350 lb. load, but you can easily increase the motors torque by decreasing the diameter of its pulley in relation to the pulley attached to the load.

The solar panels would not run the motor. The motor would run off of a 12 volt battery. You can use the solar panels to charge the battery. The more watts you use the faster charge time. You can add more panels to shorten the charge time.
