Curious what the differences are between the motors and the power requirements. Do both saws run on 220V? Is there any option to run them on a 120 line? I know that some other band saw manufacturers have the option to run their saws on either 120 or 220. Speaking for my shop it would be nice to have the option to go with a 120 wiring scheme because 220 would require me to run a new line out to the saw. As woodworkers running a shop we all have to be at least a little skookum with electrical these days so it wouldn't be too big of an issue but something to consider.
