Questions & Answers for FREE SHIPPING - Wel-Bilt Hammer Drill - 1/2in. Chuck

Question

What is the amp rating?

Most power tools are rated in amps (e.g., say that the drill is 15A -- amps x voltage = watts, so a 15A drill will require a generator that can put out a peak of at least 1,800 watts, or I stand a good chance of flipping the circuit-breaker every time I start the drill, or every time it binds. So, what is the amp rating on this tool?

...Hate to answer my own question, but I missed one factoid in the description: "500 watt motor". If that is correct, 500 watts divided by 120 volts would be about 4.2 amps, which is pretty weak. Does that make sense?

answer 2
The drill is rated at 500 watts. So it will be around 4 amps.

You are correct. Dividing the watts by the volts gives you the amps of 4.2.
