CWI makes their Stallion in 2HP and 3HP but they’re more money and you’ll need 220V. The 1.5HP is intended for people that want to run on 110V. I could have installed 220V and went with another make but I was sold on the price point and fence quality of the Stallion, a good fence is another $400 if you want to upgrade, I didn’t want to do that. The Magnum and General International’s fence were a bit cheap looking and felt not as good. Also the Magnum’s hight adjustment crank took 3 turns to every 1 turn of the Stallion to adjust height. I’m just a hobby wood worker so I thought the 1.5HP would fine and it has been great, Ive never slowed the blade down. I don’t see myself cutting 4×4 post, stock thicker than a couple inches or logs etc.
