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 ;-((

Thanks TopamaxSurvivor. So you are saying that either the HP or the Amp draw listed on the Grizzly website is not accurate and is based on an older formula? I can understand companies picking and choosing the formula they use for different specs in order to improve marketing, but was not aware this was the case for Grizzly/Shop Fox.
