It's fairly easy to source a 230VAC to 110VAC transformer downunder, although 1.2 KVA is getting up there in size. I have a building site transformer on which I run a 110VAC laser printer. If it's a personal import for the buyer there should be no

Also if the rest of the mower is in good condition, maybe it would be more worthwhile to find another engine to swap in there if possible? http://www.brandnewengines.com/SV730-3043.aspx?gclid=CJLRyLPlwcACFYZzMgod30oAAw
