Yes, The hammonds are tough, but they are designed for 115v wall volatge. In the US, wall voltage can be really high(128v+). So you are making it run hard right from the get go. Most of the hammond power transformers I have used run hot. Even when pulling lighter loads (110mA from a xformer with 150mA) they get really hot. I have never had one fail, but I like to get the biggest hammond I can fit just so it stays cool.
Now the output transformers.....those really are indestructable
