Can the 2 hp Harbor Freight dust collector run on 220 volt as well?

I don’t have one, but it’s only listed on the website for 120V. The motor plate will say for sure. If it’s labeled as 120/240V it cam be switched….but I don’t think it is.

This has been asked and answered a few times in the past… the answer is no – it’s 120v only.

Cheers,

I have one and I don’t remember seeing anything about 220V on it anywhere.

FYI, my switch stopped switching a couple years ago. (Fortunately it was stuck in the ON position)
I added a remote control switched outlet and have the key fob hanging on the table saw.

Super convenient. Wish I had done that lots sooner.

That’s the one I have and the fob is hanging on my saw as well. Works like a charm and for 15 bucks, it may be the best purchase I’ve made for the shop.

I’m surprised that the remote switch has not burned up seeing that it’s nowhere near rated for that much of a load.

Mine is a bit older, but the answer then was ‘no’.

You can go to their website and download the manual. It will say in there.

I can’t certify that this is the EXACT unit I put on my DC. I just quickly searched for one that appeared to be like the one I got.

My memory is that the price was $15 and the rating at about 15A, even though the HF DC states 20A, it has never been a problem for me – 2 1/2 years running. (I suspect the 2HP spec is OVER rated) YMMV

I’ve been using that exact remote switch with my HF DC for over 10 years and it’s still going strong. Knock on wood!

To answer the OP’s question, no, it’s not dual voltage.

Have your say...
