Yes, I know Vince, that was my point. Peak HP is meaningless, especially expressed as amps. My 5HP (peak HP) compressor motor is actually about 2 real HP. In any motor application, the amount of torque needed to push the load is what is important.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
