  • Ts 3650 220v

    I just got the 3650. I ran it a few times on 110 before I switched over to a 220V circuit( also rewired the motor per instructions). The thing is it seems to start with a lot more force than with 110. Is this possible?

    Yes, and your results aren't uncommon. In theory, a dedicated 110v 20 amp circuit with adequate wiring should perform comparably to a 220v line. In the real world, voltage losses in a 110v circuit tend to be higher. Your saw's motor will have a large amperage surge at start up which is likely more difficult for the 110v circuit to supply. It appears that the 220v line is more capable of meeting that peak at startup.

      thanks hewood. Is this bad for the saw. thanks again for the info.

        Short answer... "no".

        Just a different way of running, double the voltage, 1/2 the amperage.

          It is better for the saw. Starving a motor for voltage while starting or running will cause heating issues
