You can purchase an adapter plug that inserts into the existing 125/250V outlet and converts it to a 15A 120V regular outlet complete with overload protection in the form of a pop-up breaker, or, you can get a step-up/down transformer.

I much prefer rotovac products over mytee but I feel like I heard an air leak in that video on the mytee, I also saw another one cliff did with about 4-5 different portables including the CFX and air hog, in that video you could clearly hear an air leak from what sounded like the cuff on the mytee.

I have a CFX lying around so probably going to install the new motors in it, either way they seem pretty strong.

True Bob, you can use a step-up/down transformer.

BUT, the size & weight of some of these makes them awkward, to say the least.

I have one for my 110 volt Black & Decker Steamer for stain removal, I need a trolley to move it around in it's so damn heavy.
I do realise that heating elements need a much bigger/heavier tranny; but I would imagine, to run the two vac; motors, would also need a fairly big tranny;.

Conversely, other trannies I have for other 110 volt equipment are much smaller & more portable.

Reckon I'll wait until they make those vac; motors in 240 volt for my CFX-15.

Or I retire. šŸ˜‰
