A: It's rated at 13 amps. This drill is going to be around 1560 watts. My Honda 2000 watt generator will run my drill ok. My 3000 watt generator runs the drill even better.
A: I used my Hawg last weekend using a small Honda eu2200i generator (rated to deliver 2200 watts). NO PROBLEMO! The work done by an electric motor is measured in Watts. Volts X amps. = watts The Super Hawg is engineered to be plugged into a 120 volt circuit and the motor is rated at 13 amps. 120v X 13amps = 1560watts The surge to start the motor will exceed this my a small percentage so a light, portable (carried with one hand) 2000watt generator, like my Honda, easily powers the drill.
A: at full load 1,560 watts
A: 120 volts X 13 amps = 1560 watts--not including the extra surge to start the motor
A: yes, with the right bit and in low speed
A: I routinely drill 4 5/8" holes in spruce and pine with a self feed bit so if the tie is of similar density I would say yes.
A: With a hole saw it will do it. Hold on tight
A: That depends upon the design and quality of your four inch bit. It will definitely cut the hole but you'll have to go slow by pulling the bit out often to clean the hole of debris and shavings. For the money, I don't know of a 120 volt tool that will come close to the Super Hawg for torque and duty cycle. If you must have more than 13 amps you'd have to go to a 220 volt tool with an escalating price tag and a torque nearly impossible for one man to handle.
A: The drill has plenty of power I routinely drill 4 5/8'' holes in wood.If you have a sensible and skilled operator and are blowing or washing your drillings out I am confident it will do the job.The drill has a clutch in low speed only which protects the motorif that works for you I have been using them hard ever since they came on the market and have never burned out a motor.
A: No a hammer drill would would better it is made for concrete this drill is made for drilling in wood.
A: no, not recommended for this type of application
A: Usually you would use a spline shank impact drill with a carbide bit. But if you have limited overhead space and you’re using a diamond core bit you won’t need impact but you’ll need water. Hopefully gravity will be in your side otherwise you’re going to be an old man by the time you finish the 40th hole. The Super Hawg is 13 amps and commercial duty. The right (90 degree) angle will help with overhead space limitations but it will take serious effort. I would trust this tool to get the job done. Worse scenario—give the drill a break if you think it’s over-heating.
A: The Super Hawg is 13 amps. At 120 volts this would be about 1560 Watts of power. If the British unit for 1 horsepower is 0.00134102 Watts then 1560 Watts would be around 2 hp.
A: Theoretically without allowing for friction losses it works out to just about 2 HP
A: 1.35 horsepower
A: Jump on the web and look for amps to HP conversion. Looks like a 13amp motor at 115VAC would be approximately 2 HP. Efficiency of the motor is a factor also so I wouldn’t be confident in saying it’s 2 HP until you know the motor efficiency percentage from the manufacturer and are able to factor that into the equation.
