I can’t agree with Rick, you’ll find there is a considerable difference between 1 1/2 & 2HP motors, providing it is a like for like motor of course. Also bear in mind, it is after all bandsaw, with the extra power even more noticeable when driving the thin blade.

It’s more important that the wheels are balanced, you can of course do this yourself quite easily using small self adhesive magnets placed strategically on the wheel rim. (There is an abundance of info on the net on how to do this.)

Good luck

David
