Why is the Bosch MRC23EVSK rated at 2.3 hp?
The Bosch MRC23EVSK, which comes as a motor, plunge base and fixed base, just like all the 2-1/4 hp routers with which I am familiar, differs from the 2-1/4 routers in that it is rated at 15 amp like all the 3-1/4 hp routers. All other 2-1/4 hp routers are rated at 11 amp.
Is it an horrendously inefficient motor, a typo propagated prolifically or is there some other explanation?

"Teach your children what we have taught ours, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."

- Wood working, especially router work is too much fun to let "disabilities" get in the way.
