    Hello,

    I work at MENZER in Germany (Miotools is one of our resellers) and were always interested in improving our products to meet consumer demands. May I ask why 230 V is not suitable? I thought that in the UK mains voltage was 230 V. Isnt that right? What would you need instead? 110 V?

    Is that always the case or just in some regions? I searched the internet and found lots of construction machines such as industrial vacuums or floor sanders sold in the UK equipped with a 230 V motor.

    Does anyone on here use any of these drywall sanders or hoovers? These seem to be the only product that I can't find much info on with regards to reviews

    Built in Germany I believe which indicates good quality.

    If you like to have a look at customer reviews, you could check Amazon. All the reviews are in German there, but maybe you could use Google translator in order to read them. Its not a very good translation but it is understandable, I think.
