That wasn't what I meant. I left out the units, my error, but I wasn't
the mechanical load but the current. Someone posted (as I recall)
600 AMPS! I don't think the wires will handle that (that's the limit of
clip-on meters as well) so I doubt it. I suspect 300 amps as a maximum.

If that was me - - I said that I had pulled 500 or 600 pounds (a barrel of
water or 1/3 rick of green oak firewood) up a pretty steep hill (12
degrees). This is in 2nd gear (with my E-15). I seldom let the needle get
into the yellow, let alone the red, so I've never had any trouble with
over-heating. I have no idea what the amps are.
I appreciate the note about the tractor pull. I've often wondered what the
Electrac would do in one of those.
