There will NO difference in the power of the saw at 110v or 220V. Most 1-1/2HP motors are rated at about 12 amps at 110V and would be 6 amps at 220V. 110X12=1320 watts 220X6=1320 watts. The power of the motor is the same. If the 110V circuit is sized correctly you will accomplish nothing by changing to 220.
