The same cut will require the same amperage whether it is made on a two horse motor or a three horse motor. the three horse is capable of supplying more than the 2 horse but they use the same power for the same cuts. a three horse can be successfully used on 20 amps with no more chance to blow the breaker than a 2 horse which takes 20 amps at 110v.

Sorry to disappoint you but you are wrong again. There is maximal current rating for each specific motor and usually the higher the nominal power means higher maximal current.
You can try all you want but a 2HP motor may not consume 40A at any speed but that could be a normal staring current for a 5HP motor.
To sum it up a more powerful motor has a higher chance ( by much) of tripping a breaker on the same circuit than a less powerful motor.
