I just have one bit of additional info to offer that might be relavent. Some of these tools use AC micro motors that run on high cycle inverter type power supplies. I suspect the Gesswin is probably an example.

It is possible to pack much more horsepower into a smaller package with high cycle tools. I once had an angle grinder at the foundry that looked just like all the other 7” angle grinders around. Weighed about the same and about the same size and shape. That tool was powered by a special 360 hz power supply and it generated well over 5 hp. Real HP, not the ridiculous exagerated ratings of most power tools.
