  • TS3650 @ 240 V

    Anyone have the saw wired for this? If so, how is the performance as compared to 120 V. It is getting down to the nitty gritty and am going back and forth between the similarly priced Delta contractors and the Ridgid.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    The saw will perform no differently than it does wired for 120 on a proper circuit.

        Hi Chuck - I'm far from an expert but from what I understand your motor could benefit from 220v if you're 110v circuit is undersized or underrated. "Theoretically" the saws should perform no differently on 220v than they do on a sufficient 110v circuit.

        The reality is that most of us have circuits that suffer from some voltage losses in the wiring, and nearly all of us have power supplied from a grid that experiences drop outs and low voltage periods from time to time. Those dips and losses have a more significant impact on a motor wired for 110v than on 220v because it represents a higher percentage drop to the 110v circuit. Those electrical drops cause loss of efficiency which generates heat in the coils. That higher loss generates more heat in the coils of the motor wired for 110v.
