Is there a simple formula for comparing the relative output/peformance of different motor types? For example, the DW745 has a brushed motor offering 1850w; the AC216TS has an 1100w induction motor so, assuming same blade used in both to cut same piece of wood would one be like hot knife through butter while other struggles?

Nothing so simple I'm afraid. Usually, not even the power figures can be compared on the same scale.
I knew it wouldn't be straightforward. Right, change of tact. I'm sure someone on here switched from a Dewalt to the Axi, perhaps they can tell me if it was the right decision ir if they are regretting doing so?
