Question by Harvey: Power Tool Amperage Ratings?
Ok, I was shopping for a Mitre saw and I noticed that most of the tools there (mitre saws, table saws, etc…) were apparently “15 amp” devices. But this isn’t possible because at 120v my new mitre saw would have to have something like a 5 HP motor. And that’s simply not the case.

My best guess is that they are trying to indicate you can use the saw on a standard 15 amp circuit.

What am I missing here?

P.S. I haven’t tried it yet, I will this weekend. If it does somehow draw 15 amps I’ll be really surprised, and I’ll be without a saw because I don’t have a higher amp circuit running outside.
Here’s a link to a cheap ryobi saw on homedepot.com. Even it’s labeled as 15 amp even though it’s marketed to the home user. And there’s no way that’s a 5 hp motor.

Best answer:

Answer by mechnginear
Start-up current can be 6X running current. They’re probably indicating that you’ll need to be on a 15A circuit so as to eliminate the nuisance tripping of the breaker.

    I’ve been in the maintenance field for over twenty years, and have used several brands of drills. I think that it is of good quality! I’ve used it to drill concrete, to hanging pictures. I love the light that comes on when you pull the trigger, it really helps to see what your doing! Plus the bonus, my male co workers haven’t asked to borrow it! It’s all mine!! I would definitely recommend it,from the do it your selfers, at home use and construction work ect. it will hold up! The only thing is, it’s not really a hot pink, but I guess you would say,a purpley pink (if that’s a word) hopefully you get the idea lol ! But still I love it and would buy another!

    I couldn’t resist buying this Original Pink Box PB18VNIC Pink 18-Volt Cordless Drill.
    I do most of the handy work around my home.
    For the past 2 years I have just been borrowing my boyfriend’s father’s tools.
    I decided I should start to get my own tools.
    I saw The Original Pink Box line of tools and equipment I decided to give them a try…. and now I am hooked.
    Not only is the colour just darling but they seem to be made of very nice quality too.
    I couldn’t wait for this cordless drill to get here so I could put up some wrought iron hooks.
    The drill is super easy to use and very light weight.
    I am ecstatic with this purchase.
    I also like that it came with the drill Bits and case.
    It’s so cute and I love that I am now building my own assortment of tools and do not need to borrow any.
    This is a great line of tools and equipment, now my only problem is I want the whole line of products.
    The shipping was very reasonable too.
    Excellent shopping experience.

    Yes I bought it because it is pink, but it really is an excellent drill. This set comes with a nice set of bits and I’ve used it all over the house. It’s not too heavy, and has plenty of power for around the house jobs

    Where did you get the figure of 5HP from?
    W=EI, so 120 x 15 = 1800W.
    If you use 746W as 1HP, that’s just over 2.4HP….. INPUT.
    The motor will be less in output.
    15A will be the current the machine will draw under FULL (cutting) load.
    Startup current will be higher, but that’s a short term overload.
    Sure, you use it on a 15A circuit. Hopefully you don’t use all the power other than intermittently.

    A 115V single phase motor rated 14 amps is about a 3/4HP motor (meaning the motor will in fact deliver 3/4HP output shaft power if presented with that large of a mechanical load). Power tool manufacturers sometimes claim higher HP ratings to hype their tools, but the electrical amperage rating really tells the story about actual output power.

    The reference lists design currents vs motor HP, voltage, and phases. For example, the design value for 3/4HP at 115V single-phase is 13.8A.

    If the product is UL listed, you can be assured that the product will not overload its power cord. If it is a 15A plug, then it is suitable for use by plugging into a duplex receptacle on a standard circuit. Otherwise, UL would have required a larger plug (e.g. 20A which isn’t physically compatible with a standard 15A duplex receptacle). (receptacle = wall outlet).
