Just a comment about the HF 2 HP; there are some things to check if you re thinking about that. The HF is not a 2 HP motor, it s closer to 1.5HP. Most 1.5HP DCs have an 11” impeller, but the HF has one that s closer to 10”

My dust collector used to trigger 15A breakers one out of three starts until I upgraded to 20A. My 2HP Grizzly never ever triggered a 15A breaker even with a full dado set. I used the outlets interchangeably.

So unless HF motor has very bad efficiency factor I would argue that it is at lease as powerful as 2HP saw.

As for the impeller diameter it is not the only factor that dictates its performance. There is also width and the shape too.
