There are benefits to using 220v as mentioned, but the benefits can vary a lot depending on the particular circuit and the particular motor in question. It’s possible that there’s no noticeable difference in some cases, and a very noticeable difference in others. If 220v is readily available, I’d make the switch. If it’s not readily available but lights are dimming and the saw is slow to come up to speed and struggling, I’d consider making the switch. If 220v is not readily available, and there are zero issues with running a tool on 110v, it’s probably not worth bothering.
