To add to my comment last night, if you can run the 220v cheaply doing it yourself, it’s always nice to have on hand for things like running bigger motors in the future, or freeing up 110v outlets for other things. The 13 amp motor shouldn’t have much trouble unless your 110v isn’t up to snuff or if the line is shared by other appliances, but if you ever add a true 2hp motor that draws more amperage, it’ll push the boundaries more. Once 220v is there, then you can experiment pretty easily to see if it helps your R4512….no harm done, and could possibly be some benefit if the 110v line needs help.
