That is a typical european full size condenser dryer.made by Candy group Italy that makes Hoovers now...
The fact they added casters makes it portable??? Or what???

One Condenser Dryer Is Enough For Me

Had it been vented *might* have been tempted. But with owner's reviews less than satisfactory am not driving all over NJ to collect. *LOL*

Besides it runs on about 300 watts less than my AEG and that unit takes >two hours to dry an eleven pound mixed load. In fact last night got that fed up with the thing after one hour and a half (and the "hand iron" light had yet to come on), that stopped the unit and bunged the still mostly wet load into the Whirlpool. There things dried in <45 minutes. Few things that had damp spots when onto a laundry maiden for a while to finish.

That Hoover unit runs on 208v-240v at 50hz. Not sure if it would mind "American" power but the difference in frequency can affect any computer circuits or other parts such as the motor speed.

Wonder how the thing got to this side of the pond anyway?

50 Cycle Dryers

If used in the US on 60 cycle power they will tumble too fast and the clothing will dry poorly-slowly and very wrinkled.

Well Someone Is About To Find Out

As bidding will end shortly. Suppose they could run the thing though an inverter or something, but still it *IS* a condenser dryer which IMHO translates into quite a lot of bother for very little return. Again had this been a Euro vented dryer may have been tempted.
