Strange list indeed John :)

With the exception of 2) + 10) these seem easy.

1. Robinair do a dual voltage unit
3. A normal battery drill would fit the bill
4. DeWalt do a battery powered grinder
5. Bog standard 240v / 110v transformer (rated for the power requirement) from the electrical wholesaler
6. Arctic Yellow 110V cable from any electrical wholesaler
7. Any halogen lampholder available from the local electrical wholesaler with a 110v rated lamp
8. No comment regarding 110v as I've never come across one
9. All the weighing scales I've ever owned / used have been battery powered (9v) - various makes

Is this a requirement for a specific Risk Assessment ?

Hi Frank.
Kinda for risk assessment....being predominantly mobile we should :p be using 110v....now would be a good time to start.....thing is we will be phasing the equipment in across 100+ engineers :D

Hi Reeferjon, sorry I can't help with the tool request,, I have a little trouble getting my head around why being mobile means we should be using 110v tools. Would there be any documentation you could guide me to so I can have a read upon?

This all seems to be led by the end user, where we have to work on site and comply to their HSE regs/requests.
