In theory, there’s supposedly no difference if the 110v circuit is up to par (many are not). In practice, I’ve definitely noted a difference in startup speed and recovery from bogging, which ultimately made the saw seem like it ran stronger. Every circuit and every motor are different, but 220v tends to have less voltage loss, which can show up most during peak demands. It’s possible that you won’t notice any difference, but you might. If you’ve got 220v and the motor can run on either, I’d run it on 220v. No harm done, and there’s reasonable possibility that you’ll see a difference.
