Topic tags/keywords: table saw workshop electrical 240v 220v question tablesaw

I am looking into a couple different table saws (Grizzly G0691, Grizzly 1023rlwx) and noticed that one says 220V one says 240V?? I was under the impression these voltages are basically the same the 220V just reflects the power loss while the 240V reflects what the main feed is?

If I have 240V outlets can I run a 220V machine on it without damaging the machine?

Thanks and look forward to responses!

Yes, you can. Quality control on the written information coming with some of these machines is non-existent.

220V is an older way to describe 240V. Depending on the equipment, it may say 250V because that’s the maximum nominal voltage the tool can accept. Most residential service is 120VAC per pole, or 240V for the two pole service.

And to further obfuscate things… those motors are 3600 rpm even though the nameplate says 3450 :)

Well, only under no load. Under load the rotor never keeps up with the stator; therefore, the slight difference between nameplate and “theoretical” or no load. Nameplate give full load amps, full load rpm, ........ There now, hope that unobfuscates the issue ;-)
