If a DC Wheelchair motor is rated at 9.4 Amps...

If a DC Wheelchair motor is rated at 9.4 Amps, is that the under full load?
I can't find much in the way of specs, but the motors are clearly labelled..
Voltage(V): 24v DC
** EDIT **
I didn't get the answer I was seeking, so today I pulled the base out. After some testing, the results indicate that the 9.4v must be an average load reading.
With the base lifted (wheel turning freely) the current draw was 3.3A
With the base settled (wheels in contact with a sheet of plywood), the base pushed up against the wall and some weight applied... The max current draw was 15.2A
I posted the results for anyone who may search for it in the future.
