P.S. I serioulsy doubt if you could possibly need more than a 1 hp motor on the JVM-836. It just isn't that big a machine.
Even a 1/2hp motor would probably be enough for anything you'd put on an 836. The motor on my JVM-840 is rated 1/2 hp at its lower speed, and I've never felt the need for more power.
