Question Max power draw for Ryobi R163 ??

Looking to determine if a household circuit rated at 700 W would be able to handle the load from working pine. The Ryobi manual doesn't show power ratings and the boilerplate on the router only says 8.5 A. Usually when power is not highlighted (as say in the DeWalt Table saw manual), it means it's not worth worrying about, but better safe than sorry, right?.

Anyways, does anybody know?

Thanks

To answer this question you need know the voltage then you can calculate the current by dividing voltage into wattage. For example; an electric heater rated at 700 watts when plugged into a 115 v outlet will draw 700/115 = 6.08 amps of current

Amps to Watts: Watts = Amps x Volts

8.5◊120 = 1020 watts

Watts to Amps: Amps = Watts / Volts

700ų120 = 5.83 amps...

house leg is too light weight...
where did you come up w/ 700 watt rating???

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

The short answer is 'what else is on the cct?'

If it's a dedicated, or close to it cct, than you can run pretty much any I20V portable power tool off it...even with a 100' 12/3/1 extension cord plugged in.
If, on the other hand, you're running all the main floor lights off that cct., and they're all on, not going to happen.
Try it; if it's overloaded you'll pop the breaker...then you'll know for sure.

#12 , 3 conductor plus ground. Everybody leaves the "1" off when they say 12/3 but it's also available without ground...no green wire.

I can't believe this...
Wire & Cable | Wire | Southwire 63947655 Romex Cable with Ground, Yellow, 12/3 Awg, 250 ft | B242155 - GlobalIndustrial.ca
No identified ground wire?! Is Brown the new Green?!
And since when has the ground been called a "conductor"?!

Yes.
Sorry, I can't find my Canadian Electrical Code...and I'm not buying a new one!
The Ground's either bare or Green.
Unless the Code's been changed I'm almost positive that the Ground is by definition not a conductor, and not all cable assemblies need a ground wire.

Here's a catalogue page as an example...
