Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality transformer Good quality, robust transformer. The 3Kva version is better value than the 1.5Kva single outlet version. Doesn't suffer from overheating or constantly tripping out like some of the poorer quality transformers on the market. 8 Aug 2016

I see the 50~60hz variable sign on the output sockets. Does this mean it will be fine to run 60hz tools. Say a 13amp trim router?

Answer: 
Hi , Our transformers will operate supplied by 50hz or 60hz but they cannot change the frequency, so if it is supplied with a 50hz supply it will output 50hz also. Running 60hz tools from a 50hz source may change the speed of the motor.

The model of Henry I've been gifted has a yellow 115v commercial plug attached but I'd like to simply use him around the house from a standard 240v UK outlet.

Answer: 
You will need to check with the hoover manufacturer and if OK be advised that this transformer is designed for building site use primarily, so during normal operation these units will become warm. Ensure the transformer will not damage any floor covering it is standing on. It is not advisable to stand the unit on carpets, vinyl floor covering or other surface materials that may be prone to heat damage.

Answer: 
For a definitive answer you would have to check with the tool manufacturer, US equipment is designed for a supply of 60hz frequency, in the UK it is only 50hz this can effect the motor speed, also some US equipment have the Neutral Earthed if this is the case it will not work with a UK CTE transformer.
