Superb Portable Transformer

By Gupitata

"I recently bought a Carroll & Meynell 3 KVA Portable Transfomer and for the small layout cost I think it is superb. It is very reliable, strong & robust, perfect for the hard working environment it will be used for. Happy customer. :-)."

Cheaper than hiring one!

"We used to hire these - and we still do - but when the special offer was on we bought a few, saves time and cost compared to hiring a small number out. The transformer keeps going without overheating so its good quality."
