Regardless of which one you choose, you will need at least a 20A dedicated circuit – normal 120v outlets are 15 amps and will cause problems trying to push a 1.75hp motor, particularly if there are other devices on the circuit.

The Powermatic actually states it should have a 30A circuit:

If you don’t have a dedicated circuit, then you might as well run a 240V one if you are going to have to run a new one anyway. Just saying.
