Why no ROTEX 125 110V?
« on: October 20, 2019, 01:59 AM »
Im positive I have used one in the past, but can only find 240V models on the web.

Is my memory failing me?!

If I could hazard a guess it would be the motor size too much for 110V, but there is a ROTEX 150 110V.

(used the search function, apologies if this is a common question, im new here)

Im looking for UK 110V. Perhaps why it was so easy for you to find.

In the relatively short time I've been using Festools (four years or so) I don't think I've ever seen a 110V version amongst any UK retailer's offerings, and there doesn't appear to be one on Festool's UK website. (As to 'why?', I don't know.)

I own one so they did make them, most of my festools are uk 110v due to stupid site rules.
According to their website they still make ro90 and ro150 in 110v, so another short sighted change by Festool by the looks of it.

Have you contacted some dealers directly to see if they have old stock kicking about?
Hope you track one down, I would not want to be parted from mine.

Would have been nice to know you're looking in the UK. Since by far most people here are from the US I assume people who don't specifiy their location are from the US. This is a big world.

110v model is not on the Festool UK site anymore, so they discontinued it. Do as suggested and contact dealers to see if they have old stock. Should not be too hard.

You could try to import a model from the USA and change the cord, should work.

But you would be better off to get the RO150. I know both sanders, and the 150 blows the 125 out of the water on all fronts.
