Can I use a Hilti charger purchased in the USof A, in Europe

Hi, as you've probably realised already, I'm technically quite illiterate!  I just purchased a Hilti TE 6-A 36V NiCd Cordless Rotary Hammer drill with batteries and charger on Ebay from a store in the US.  Can anyone advise me whether I would be able to use the charger in Europe or do I need to modify it ?  If I need a new or modified charger would the batteries be ok to use?  Sorry for the probably very naive question but this is all Chinese to me :)   Thanks for your help.

As Conductor562 has said you can buy a converter that you can plug in to drop the voltage for the battery charger.

Just one word of warning about this type of buying though. If you buy a Hilti outside Europe and it is still in warranty, that warranty isn't worth a carrot because Hilti use this as a get out of doing ANY repairs.

So just be aware that a service alone on that drill is over £180 U.K and you will be paying full wack if it breaks down.
