Well, essentially the question is "Why is the HP so much higher then the torque?". Reason why is that torque is actually measured, and HP is simply calculated and a result of the actual torque.

In short, it has to do with the characteristics of the motor vs powder adder, and the direct correlation between Torque and HP.
