Hi , I intend to buy soon the Grizzly G0704 mill machine ( BF20 style) and the G0602 lathe.
On the Milling machine they quote the motor as being 1HP.
Fine I say...
Then they quote 3Amps@110V...
Now that can't be!
1HP equals about 745Watts. Now 745Watts/110V=6,78 Amp.
Whether the motor is DC, 3 phases, brushless or AC 1 phase, it will consume at least 745Watts one way or another! ( plus the normal loss in any electrical circuit)
Can someone shine some light on this issue.
This is not a deal breaker, but Iwould like to clarify this in my mind.
To me, it looks more like a 0.5HP motor, given the size of it also.
(edit) I just found that the gauge of the cable is AWG#18, so definitively, this is not 1 HP!!
For the lathe, I have not checked this issue as of yet.
