Since you are aware of the impeller discussion, then as Woody stated the motor may indeed be smaller than other units since it never used the extra HP. The question is would you ever consider the 12” upgrade in your path? If so the 15A motor probably would not cut it as I believe the 12” impeller pushes pretty close to the 20A current limit.

The other option to check is there are any on Craigslist. In my area there are a steady stream of those and other 1.5HP DCs for sale. The HF units are usually ~$100-125.

Hope that helps. Let us know what you do.
