Sorry to disagree with another poster but you are not going to find very many new table saws in the 3 hp range that are designed for being hard wired only. It wouldn’t hurt but is absolutely not required, whether it comes with a plug or not. I have had to install 240V plugs on several woodworking tools I have, including a table saw and a jointer/planer. There are two common 240V 20A plugs in use. One looks like a 120V plug but one of the blades is at right angle to the other. The other one is a twist lock and it is round. Tools don’t always come with a plug because the manufacturer doesn’t know what type outlet you have or whether it is 20A or 30A.
