It is good there is no aluminum. It was used years ago and there is still a lot of it out there. You know, after the capacitor is tried if you still have a problem I am one that would take the tool to a motor shop if you have one. We have such a shop and they can tell you what is wrong with tools in a few minutes. The cost is nominal and they could tell you about how much to diagnose before they start.

Now for the electric service. Dropping to 80 volts is not a normal thing. This system sounds overloaded. The services of as good electrician is not terribly expensive either. That is quick and if the guy is good he can probably pinpoint the problem pretty quick.
