Sure you can make 6.5 HP with 110 volts.
6.5hp x 746 watts/hp = 4849 watts
4849 watts/110v = 44 amps.
Which means that you can't make 6.5 hp on a standard 1520 amp 110v household
circuit (without tripping a breaker or burning something up), but assuming the
circuit is set up for say 50 amps (plugs too) there no physical reason why you
can't have that much HP on a 110v circuit.
Of course, all this is moot because I believe the unit you describe is set up
for 220v.
