Thanks for the additional comments.

@iblewjon Not sure, where your info comes from, but “2 HP, 120V/240V (prewired for 120V), single-phase, 15A/7.5A ” is strait off of the grizzly website, for the Shop Fox W1837. I can t argue based on personal experience, I m just going off of the specs that have been made available.

That is probably the National Electrical Code rating. About 15 or 20 years ago all the power tools HP doubled. I believe they started using locked rotor current instead of full load to rate HP ;-((
