Default Motor Voltage

What's the preformace difference between the same cyclone dust collector with a 110 volt motor verses a 220 volt motor? My shop doesn't have 220.

Probably none, but the portion of your electric bill attributable to the 220v DC system will be about half. And, a 220v circuit would allow a higher HP system. Whether those considerations are worth the cost of having a 220v line installed is up to you.

Davis,

The difference between the 120V motor and the 240V motor of the same HP is that the 120V motor will draw twice the current. This in turn requires larger wire (more expensive, less flexible) and larger amperage (but in the US physically smaller) breakers.

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!
