I have a Craftsman Professional 10” Model #152.221240 that is wired for 110 currently. I would like to change to 240.

Does anyone have this saw running on 240?

Thanks

I had that saw on 240v (aka 220v) for over 3 years. In my case, switching to 240v made a notable difference in startup and recovery speed, which helped it plow through thicker materials with less bogging. There are no guarantees that yours will respond the same, depending on your supply circuit. If you have 240v available, all you’ll need to do is change the plug to fit your 240v outlet, and follow the schematic inside the wire junction box….it takes about 5 minutes for the rewire. It ran great with good 3/32” thin kerk blades.

You can also gain some rip capacity pretty easily on that saw if you want to.
