A "No load " motor and "soft start" are 2 completely different things. A no load motor is basically a motor rating for its power rating in a theoretical vacuum. It is how much power the motor makes with nothing attached to it, basically. Soft start is slowing the motors acceleration up to top (or regulated) speed electronically. Most routers have had this feature for years to lower the torquing when they go from 0-24000 RPMS. over a few second span instead of instantaneously.Soooooo, anyone know if a “no load” motor is the same as “soft start”?
