Does your new DC actually have a nameplate on the motor? My gray HF DC doesn’t have a nameplate. Checking the website does show the difference on the 15 amp draw for the gray model versus the 20 amp draw for the green model. However both are listed at 2hp with a 1550 cfm airflow. Is there any way to verify that the gray model is actually a 2hp motor? I would also like to know if anyone has done an actual airflow test to verify that the Rikon impeller develops more cfm when installed in a HF DC? The Rikon 2hp DC is listed as developing 1250cfm airflow so is everyone just assuming that the larger diameter impeller moves more air or has it been proven? The specs show 300cfm less airflow.
