Information given in my manual? This is all that it says in the delta Model 34-444 manual.

The motor recommended for use with your saw is the Cat. No. 62-044 1-1/2 H.P., Ball Beaing,
Capacitor Start/Capacitor Run, 115/230 Volt motor

13.5A if wired for 115v. About half that for 220v.

Just based on the hp rating (1.5 hp = 1118.55 Watts), approximately 10A on a 115V circuit or 5A on a 230V circuit.

I cannot, but I had that saw and it ran fine on a 120V/20 A circuit until i switched it to 240V, that one was also a 20 amp. If it’s wired 120V, it might run on a 15 amp circuit; I never tried so can’t answer with any experience. Just want to mention, my saw had a motor plate that called it 1.5 HP on 120V, and 2 HP on 240V. The real skinny on that was the HP ratings were false, the motor was de-rated at 120V to meet UL requirements, it was a true 2 HP motor. But over time it came with a couple of different motors, and the one you cited might be a different one than I had.

Some came with a straight 1.5hp deal, and some had the magic 1.5/2hp thing depending on voltage. As mentioned, the data plate on the motor should indicate what you have – here are examples of both:

Thanks guys, I couldn’t see a rating plate due to the placement of the saw. I guess I will have to do what it takes to get to a position where I can find the plate. The information here has really helped and I’m sure now that I will be able to find the correct amps. The foot switch I have said it was rated for 15 amps so that will be the determining factor.

Rick, I just finished finding the amps and it is the same as yours. 1.5 HP so I when ahead and hooked up the foot switch which I will eventually make it used as a knee switch. Thanks to you all for the speedy help. larry
