If inside has only an universal type of motor, it can work on DC from several batteries in series too. If it has a transformer for some control circuitry, it needs adaptations.
 
Thank you.

How to calculate as how many batteries (DC) will be required to connect in series?

Is it possible to house the batteries inside the casing of the product Or the batteries have to be kept outside the product casing to make it work?

The On/Off Switch to power on the product and Press here button to start the electrical motor functions remain the same?

Thanks & Regards,

It would help if we knew which country you are in and what the main power supply is?
Can you get pictures of the inside of it?

Mike.
 
Thanks.

Country: India.
Mains: 230 V Ac, 50 Hz

I will try to get the pictures for the product from inside.

Thanks & Regards,

As already pointed out, if it's simply a motor then batteries would work but you'd need a huge amount, approx nineteen 12V batteries in series. Not really a practical solution.

There should be a manufacturer label on the case. Check for the Watts (W) rating on it and look for a twice rated watts inverter, is not too expensive
----> https://www.banggood.com/search/500w-inverter-230v.html?from=nav

So you want to sell/process coconuts by the beach with no power outlets nearby, right ?

Warning : You may end returning a crappy inverter rated "12V" because it will NOT start unless the input voltage is really 13.8V or more from a running vehicle. Make sure the vendor proves to you it works on 10-12 Volt before buying.

Next choice is a gasoline powered 230V AC generator. Or pedal to your grinder...
