Congrats on a nice deal. You may find that blade choice will cure any bogging issues you have, or at least improve things. Stock blades tend to be pretty poor if that’s what’s on there. 8/4” should be cut with a decent 24T 3/32” thin kerf blade like a Freud Industrial, Freud Diablo, Irwin Marples, Infinity, Amana AGE, DeWalt Precision Trim series, CMT Industrial, etc.

220v won’t hurt either if you have it available, especially if the 110v circuit is overtaxed.
