Q
What size of generator do I require?
AAll electrical products have a data plate with information regarding their power usage. For most power tools (drills, sanders etc), their listed wattage is all the power they require to run. Household items such as central heating pumps, lights, TV’s, video recorders etc. fall in the same category. Items such as freezers, fridges, washing machines, some lawn mowers are normally different, whilst they can state a wattage rating, due to the type of motor they use can require a much greater requirement on start up, when started they then require a smaller usage.

If you are unsure as to what power usage a product has it is always advisable to contact the relevant manufacturers sales or technical dept, quoting model number and requesting the START UP wattage & RUNNING wattage of your item. With this information you will be able to determine accurately the size of generator you require.
