I’m going to put some popcorn on and enjoy the show. These kinds of questions always stir up a lively debate.

I’m no electrical expert at all, but what I’ve read indicates the main advantage to 220 is that your saw will likely be the only thing on the circuit, so you will not experience the light dimming and breaker tripping more common when running your saw on a circuit with other household draws on it.

In theory, running on 220 will not make your saw more powerful (although Al (Bertha) will disagree).
