At one time both 110/220V versions listed 1 ½ hp, one day 220V became 2 HP. Did they change anything, have no idea? I like the 1 ½ HP version because that is how my small shop is wired. It handles everything I turn.
If had bigger shop and 220V service would want the Powermatic 3520B over the Jet.

I have yet to bog down the motor on my lathe.
