Will this contactor handle 240v 30A? I am pretty sure it does, but I just want to make sure before I purchase it:

Does anyone recommend a different contactor for that load w/ a 120v coil?

The one you posted should work, as it's rated for 40A resistive. However, just for peace of mind, I'd go with the 240B.
