The only problem I see is that regardless of voltage, you would be buying, at most, a 2 hp saw. If you are good with that, then great. I personally think its not enough, especially if I knew that 220v was in my future.

I’d get a used Ridgid hybrid type, or similar for now and then sell it once I move into the permanent shop. That way, you aren’t locking yourself into your “lifetime” saw right now. Because you’d get close to what you paid for it when reselling, it’s almost like free rent.

Your opinions might change in five years, so I’d keep that open.
