    Plug wise is a simple fix. Either use a socket adaptor or change the plug with correct live and neutral wire. More importantly is you need a voltage converter that able to manage the wattage of GG6 (probably 1000w or more) and convert from 110v to 220v.

    It has a 850w electric motor in it. So a 1000w converter would be enough. If useing a extension cable I would go with a 220v from the electric outlet and then the converter and the polisher connected to that.

    Thanks swetm.
    Polisher is with 25’ cord itself. So don’t need extension.

    It can be that they meen that you don't open the polisher up and do a convertion by your self. But if you would be extra carefull use a 1500w 220v to 110v converter. Since you often use the polisher a long time so you have a heat building up in the electronics. I don't see why a converter would not be any problems with if you have one that can handle the watts. Maybe it can be something with the hz as some is 50hz and others are 60hz. From the electric power your country has. And sorry I don't have a lot of knowledge more than this. Maybe talk to an electrician and he can help you out more about the converter specs you need to use. Take the polisher with you or a picture of the specs on the polisher if anything would be to answer on it.

    If doing it your self and buy the converter. Just keep a eye and feel of the heat generated on the polisher body and the electric cables and the converter it self. There is where the signs are if you pressure it too much. Know that it's gonna build up heat anyways but not so high that you burn your self or you get a high smell of what powertools can smell like if you used them before. And if possible take a little longer breaks so it can be cooling down sometimes. That I need to be doing with my cheap Rupes copy of polisher LOL.
