Default 110v tools

Hi
I am moving to Melbourne next year and have 110v drills, breaker, circular saw etc, a fluke multi meter test kit. I was wondering what you use over there and if i should sell it all or bring it over with me. Any info would be good.
Cheers Brian

Hi Brian, if you are a tradie then lugging a large converter may not be sensible to different jobs, but we brought one with us for the US things we didnt want to rebuy but it is heavy and we only use it for home electronics. We are still using it for a few things 18 months later. It still doesnt convert the cycles so some things we have had to replace anyway.

My take is, if you are shipping then why not. We could hardly give stuff away, so certainly didnt make enough from selling to buy new here, and things are expensive here too.

It saves having to rush around sourcing everything if you are in a foreign country getting used to all the new stuff you have to do.

Hope it helps, good luck

240v used on site here. No need for 110v stuff. Unless you want to. But a waste of time IMHO. But as said previous. If you are shipping all your stuff then why not. 240v drills are not that expensive to buy new.

Surely if ur going to reel out a 230v lead, why not reel out a 110v, I will be bringing all my 110v stuff it would mount easliy to over 3k in power tools most are hilti.

Buy a small transformer I have one with one outlet, more than enough to run any power tool.

Itll be through time 110v will be introduced in australia onsites, I see the use of RCBOs and RCDs is getting pushed more in areas like all rentals now must have them.
UK is RCD RCBO's crazy now they get spec on everything now.

Only time I would think but cheaper tools using 230v than 110v
