No. It makes no difference if wired properly.

One would think that but I know I have had more the one motor that did more work on 220 then it did one 110. Stall factor was not there on 220 but sure could stall it on 110

That happens when the wiring is too small when used with 120. 240 can do the same work with half the wire size since there are two hot legs instead of one.

By the way, "half" is a slight over-statement.

If you have a 20 amp circuit hooked to a motor with a 20 amp draw and the length of 12 gauge wire from the motor to the panel is 50 feet, you get . .

120 volts has a 2.7% voltage drop
240 volts has a 1.5% voltage drop.

Increase the wire size to 10 gauge and the 120 volt circuit only has a 1.6% loss. Use 8 gauge wire and the drop with 120 volts is only 1.1%.
