Voltage drop is the killer of table saws. You have to be sure you have a circuit that can provide 20 amps with very little voltage drop, otherwise the saw is sure to burn itself up cutting tough wood. If your son is using a 15 amp/AWG14 circuit, he'll probably burn it out again. 12 gauge wire is a minimum, and if the saw is in an outbuilding, the feed to the building needs to be big enough supply 20 amps with minimal voltage drop.

>25 amps will run a 5 hp motor on a 240 volt line.
Which may be true but has nothing to do with the matter at hand. This is an inexpensive direct drive saw, probably rated 15 amps @ 120 volts. Try to feed it with an undersized circuit and it's going to burn up.
