Don't worry about it More and more tools are starting to show up with that 115v stuff.All of my former employers air comps and saws said the same thing.You won't have any trouble running on 110v.

WHAT is the electricity used for though? I think that is what Red is asking. The preheat option?

I think it is probably a misprint but even going down the page to the specs it says "input 115 volts"? A buddy of mine sent that to me in an E-mail because he is going to buy a small torch like that (he's a plumber) and when he looked it up that is what he found so he wanted to know what the heck it was all about, I don't have a clue except that it has to be a misprint.

Your buddy could do just as well getting a torch out fit from the regular online welding houses and just get a smaller set of tanks..I can get a smith for 199.00 and all he may need extra is a rosebud tip..bottom line is with a bit of shopping I can come up with a name brand outfit for the same amount of cash..

Yep, I did tell him that he could beat that by a lot, simply finding the Campbell Hausfeld name on something is enough to avoid it.

misprint, and the people that probably printed it,English is not their first language so their proof reader (if they have one!) would not know the difference .

Probably a cut and paste from one of their small mig welding kits.
Ignore it
