Before I had a 3hp cabinet saw, I rewired my 2hp and 1.75hp saws for 220v and noted pretty much the same thing....startups were notably faster, and recovery from bogging was much quicker....all and all, a very noticeable improvement. Each circuit is different and will behave differently, but 220v definitely tends to have lower voltage loss due to half as much current traveling through the hot legs (as rrich noted). Sounds like it was well worth the minor effort and cost to convert in your case.
