    If it says how many amps it pulls amps x volts = divided by 748 = HP.

    Between the WO466 and speed of 3450RPM,, I would bet that is a special air compressor motor,,
    Typically, they are not rated for continuous duty at FLA,, instead, it is rated at continuous air compressing,, which requires less amps,,

    If WO is "watts output" then it is a bit over 1/2 HP according to charts I have found :
