    Hi Steve and Lisa,

    as I understand things the tools will work in Aus but the plugs will need to be changed as they use different sockets, there are a few members of this forum that have taken tools, 110 and 230 out there i'm sure they will confirm they work later.

     

    you don't by any chance work for adams carpentry do you:)

    240 Volts 50Hz in Oz.

    These days, most chargers are international and will take anything from 100Volts up to 250Volts with a frequency of 50 or 60 Hertz.

    As for plug in tools etc, you need to check the Frequency on the item itself. Should be on the label.

    If it says 60Hz, then it will run 20% slower so clocks and appliances with a motor (hair clipper/drills/etc) will need to be replaced. BUT if they say 50Hz OR 50/60Hz then you will be ok.
