Answer:
This model BO4556 I bought in Amazon is definitely 240V (to be precise 230-240V as it states in the plate). I think some stores sell a 120V version, however for a UK house you need 240V.
The spec in Amazon is misleading. A great machine by the way!

I keep mine in a small canvas M&S bag along with a couple of rolls of the sandpapers I use most often- 80 and 120 grit.
Carry-cases are usually overly bulky and have no room for the sandpaper. If you have a fair bit of kit, and use car… see more

Carry-cases are usually overly bulky and have no room for the sandpaper. If you have a fair bit of kit, and use carry cases for everything then you end up having to lug around too much unnecessary stuff.
Hope this helps. see less

I'm a painter and decorator and use the sander most days and for most of a day when I'm doing 'prep'. Obviously not hours on end continuously but certainly 10-15 mins at a time all day.

I'm a painter and decorator and use the sander most days and for most of a day when I'm doing 'prep'. Obviously not hours on end continuously but certainly 10-15 mins at a time all day. There are times when its almost too hot to hold. I use it for initial rough sanding of paint off wood as it has a good vigorous 'action' and finish off the surface either by hand or with a gentler 'action' detail sander. It's a good reliable workhorse. My first one lasted for 3 years...thought about De Walt or Blue Bosch but chose the Makita as value for money. see less
