If someone has measured average current draw of the two cases with similarly sharp knives I certainly believe the data. However, the explanation I don't. There is a boggling amount of inertia(stored energy) in an industrial machine's spinning cutter head. Further, there is huge inductance and capacitance in the motor circuit. There is no way the conventional cutter head is accelerating between knife blows.

However, the segmented knives make a substantially different chip. It may be that it takes more energy to make this chip than one made off a conventional cutter head.
