Thanks for the reply, Wooden. I talked to hf support and they let me know that the motor is not necessarily rated for 20 amps, but that it is meant for a 20 amp circuit, whereas the newer unit only requires a 15 amp circuit. I’m no electrician, but this suggests to me that the 20 amp version pulls more current at startup, but probably runs at about the same 13 amps as the other unit. Does that sound right? If so, I guess my only remaining concern is whether fewer startup amps would prevent a 15 amp unit from running the larger Rikon impeller.
