The motor label clearly shows it can be set for 240V.
I have  had 240V brought to the tower site. Can someone tell me if the 
raise/lower  toggle switch needs rewiring for 240V?
If so what needs to be done? I know  people with MDX-589 towers which run 
at 240V but I don't know if the  switching is the same.

        Umm, I'm not an electrician  but I don't think you can use 240V 
without changing out the internals in the  box; e.g. relays, delay timers, etc.
