Strange plug on this rotex 150 feq
« on: August 06, 2020, 10:04 PM »
I bought this ro 150 feq recently and the supplied cable doesn’t seem to fit the plug on the tool.
Looking online I cannot find a plug that looks like it would fit this.

See image.

@Arroyo Are you in US? What voltage and frequency listed on your tool label? This looks like UK 110V. It differs from US 120V, but will work if you can find right cable.

Yeah it’s a 110v from the UK. So you either need to get hold of a UK 110v cable like the one pictured below and swap out the wall plug end

Or maybe you can open up the tool and swap in a US plug it socket if you feel confident in that.
