Whoa, that is a battered Henry! I bet he still works great though ? Numatic made him well :)

What is that plug fitted ? Is it one of those heavy duty ones used outside ?

Oh, and do the work Henrys run with or without a bag ?

I'd guess without for cost savings, but I hope they run with a bag.

The plugs on them are different because they are 110volt versions.
None of ours use the bags or the attachments just the hose you see in the photo.

So why do you have the 110V versions compared to the standard 240V ?

@ Jamie
The reason they are 110v is that certain places of work require for health and safety that they use a lower voltage to minimise the risk of serious electric shock.

I see, but does the lower voltage mean it can't have as many watts in the motor ?

Great collection Jason! I envy you!

Hey Jamie - Wattage is calculated by amperage drawn multiplied by voltage Eg a 660 Watt motor designed to run on 220 Volts draws 3 amps while the same 660 Watt motor designed to run on 110Volts draws 6 amps. Its just a matter of using the appropriate motor for the voltage supplied. Usually the models all have the same Wattage motor, just designed for the Voltage they are required to use.
