Can Bosch 4100 contractor saw be wired for 220vac?
I just purchased a new Bosch 4100-09 table saw with gravity rise stand and it's in transit now. Should arrive tomorrow 3/23/12. My old saw went down after 30 years and I got my money's worth out of it for sure.
All of the table saws I've owned in the past had the ability to convert from 115vac to 220 vac to get the amperage down & prolong equipment life. 30 years of service makes me think that it's a good way to go, especially when ripping thick, hard, or gummy/sappy wood.
After purchasing the saw based on many good reviews, I thought about the voltage conversion and went back to the advertising to see if that was mentioned. No mention at all. Went to the Bosch website to see their info & specs. No mention at all. Downloaded both the manual & part list/diagram. No mention there. Wrote an email to Bosch asking the question. No answer yet. Seems to me that Bosch is way too frugal with information on their web site. Going to pick up the phone & call them for an answer, but may not get through right away.
How about it guys, does any one know if the saw can be wired for 220vac?
