Yea my 734 is plugged into a 25 ft extension cord and it never overheats, even running a hard lumber through. It slows down w wide stuff (12”) but I get a good finish and no trip.

May want to look into how to tell if that motor is going bad. Or have an electrician double check your breaker? Or… what if your blades are sticking out farther than they should be? That could bog it down enough to trip. So I mean the distance between the rollers and the cutter knives could be off and you’d never know it without measureing.

Just throwing out some ideas
