I want to use a monophasic 230/240 volts chainsaw coming from Europ in USA. I have biphasic 240 Volt outlet in my new US house. Can I just connect the two 125 volts phases to get a 240 volts monophasic? On the chainsaw there are two wires: one is phase and the other is neutral. Thank you for your help.
Thank you for your answers. I have been using electric chain saws for more than 20 years as a non professionnel. Less maintenance and less noise.
Of course I would use proper outlets for the connections. My questions are: 1- Is there a risk that I damage any part of the installation or switches panel if I connect the two phases together in a European female plug in order to plug in my chainsaw? 2- Do I risk to damage the chainsaw if I plug it in that female plug and start it? Thank you again for your help.
