Will a 1/2 HP runing 1725 RP's be enough for a home made plucker?

Most of the motors used have either been 1hp or 3/4hp. Other folks using lower horsepower engines complain of the pluckers bogging down under load.

for our plucker we used a 1/2 hp motor but we didn't do the barrel kind- we just did a small PVC/pulley ran one.
