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?

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