Metabo drops the ball but Bosch answers.

"
We neither test nor support European model tools in the USA. These tools have never been submitted for UL approval, so we have no data regarding how they would fare in the USA compared to running on European current, but there shouldn't be any significant difference.

How about donating them to an NGO?


I work for an American (NGO) not for profit foundation called Gateway Medical Alliance. Would you consider donating any of these tools to be used for repairing wheelchairs in Morocco, where 220V 50 Hz is the norm? If so, send me an email at [email protected] (I live in and work from Spain).
Blessings,

I'm not buying his pitch. How many "foundations " look at electrical sites?

Sorry if this looks suspicious.
Our web site is www.gatewayma.org.

I do no want to be a part of a words war, and so this will be my final post on the matter. If the owner is interested, he may contact me directly with the email already provided.

I found THIS web site and blog while looking for equipment to outfit a new workshop. I have helped the mechanic develop a project plan and agreed to help him find funding or donated equipment.

Whether you "buy the pitch" or not doesn't change the fact of the need, nor the sincerity of the inquiry. It is simply based upon a true need, and wondering why one would go to all that trouble to run 220V, 50 Hz equipment in a "hostile" 110V 60 Hz environment.

If the owner is interested in making such a donation, we can supply all the documentation necessary to prove both the legitimacy of the organization, its goals, objectives, and the specific inquiry.

No more from Me.
