Hi Jerry

Welcome to the forum.

There are lots of previous topics that will help with pricing and lots of genuine helpful members here.

Bear in mind that we use 240v 50hz over here and the cost of changing your blowers may be more than buying new ones.

You are showing your age sir!

We used to have 240 volt but that lot acroos the channel got jealous because they only had 220, so Brusels knicked 10 of ours and gave them to the French, Germans etc., leaving us with just 230volts  Cry

Personally I think we should have sold them to the Yanks, 'cos the poor old ex-colonials over there only have 110 and their need is greater.
