Ah Ha!

Looks like this would be the best choice for me, bite the bullet and get the
new SR17!

Okay, thanks for the info and explanation. I didn't know about this option.
It looks to be a modern clone of the SR17 (no tranny support needed.) Power
rating is listed as 0.7 kW (a bit more than 1 HP), which is more than either
the SR15 (0.7 HP) or SR17 (0.8 HP) OG versions.

Interesting that these seem to come with stickers telling you not to hammer
on the side of the motor housing. I take this to mean that these are
permanent magnet motors, which is probably a good thing that also explains
the higher torque in spite of slightly smaller size.
