50hz in U.S.A.?
is it posable to use a 115v 50hz motor in USA where the std hz is 60?

In theory, they should work fine UNLESS they have an electronic controller which is becoming more prevalent in late model tools. These vary as well, some will take it, others won't.
My suggestion is to contact the manufacturer prior to use.
