I am trying to figure out how much sustained torque my old style Hole Hawg is capable of.
For what its worth I see some cordless drills rated at 33 ft-lbs (400 inch pounds) but that must be when the windings ignite or the battery ruptures. Surely a cordless is only capable of say 5 ft-lbs in a sustained fashion.
Hawgs can toss you when they bind but that is more of an instantaneous torque resulting from the gearing and motor inertia (think flywheel). What I am interested in is sustained torque.
If you have any ideas please let me know.
