I have a question here: How does something that consumes 15A on a 120V grid according to the specifications, achieve power of 2400W / 3.25hp also according to the specifications?
Bosch MRC23EVSK consuming the same current produces only 2.3 HP.
Kudos to Triton engineers for finally breaking the annoying laws of physics and making a motor that is 138% efficient !

I’ve explained it here before, but the numbers represent actual measurements, just not ones that relate to normal operation. Inrush current and locked rotor measurements are among many ways to obtain a deceptive current reading and that times voltage and divided by 745 gives you the HP rating they claim. They also conveniently ignore the power factor.

Anyway, re the OPs question, I have the Mast-R-Lift II and it’s an excellent mount. Really rock solid. In fact, I have the same Bosch 1617 motor and am pleasantly surprised with how well it performs, even doing stick cuts on 1-3/4” door stiles in one pass.
