Hi chaps,

My Faithful 3.3Kv transformer wouldn't turn on this afternoon so I dropped it off at my local hire shop for diagnosis. If it's uneconomical to repair I'll have to buy another, which leads to my question: what to get?

My 110v tools have, as far as I can tell, been running perfectly fine with the 3.3Kv transformer so I could just buy one of the same, but I'm wondering whether it would be sensible to get a transformer with a 32a socket just in case?

BTW my understanding of electrics isn't the best, so let me know if I've got it completely wrong!

Cheers,
Mark

The only time i have ever needed to use 32a 110v is when its been necessary to weld from it, or working a high wattage power tool such as a 9" grinder at the end of a series of long leads.
I'd just get another 3.3kva with 2 16a sockets personally...
Unless you have any tools with quite large motors? 9"+ circular saws?
