More impressive is the torque. 5,608,312 lb/ft at 102rpm . Korea must go bankrupt every time they fire it up.

Only use I see for it is for some SERIOUSLY HUGE landscaping projects. Like completely redigging plaings. Vehicles like landmovers. Keep in mind people, its makes some serious power, but with some SERIOUS weight attached.
