If you’re not using big bits, you’re probably OK. If you do use big bits, 1.75HP is too small and also you’ll want variable speed. The thing is that they say 1.75 HP but anyone who knows about electical will tell you that that is baloney. The max HP out of a 15A 110V circuit is about 1.5 HP at best.
