will this run a 15 amp power tool?

Asked by Rich April 14, 2016
10
Answers

Rich... do the math... The simple answer is "no". While is STATED wattage is 2000/1400... the number you're interested in is the 1400. As pointed out otherwise, 120x15=1800. 1800 is greater than 1400. To illustrate... I've been running a 5000btu AC unit (pulls about 650w constant) mounted in the back of my (retired Penske) truck. It's been getting along with the Sportsman 2000 pretty well. I have the AC, my stereo, overhead LED lights (they pull about 20w each) and my laptop all plugged in and the Sportsman just chugs along... sometimes growls when the compressor kicks on... I just tried plugging in a brand new 10k BTU AC (the Texas summers are more than the little 5k unit can deal with), and while the AC turned on, compressor kicked on, and it went through a whole cycle (yummy cold air in my driveway, of all places)... the SECOND time the compressor tried to kick on (it's warmed up now, higher resistance) the AC stalled and popped the circuit breaker on the generator. This is a killer little power unit, for the money. I'd have to say it does NOT produce 1400 watts constant, probably more accurate to say it's 1400 PEAK, maybe 2/3s that constant (900/1000w).

how many db does it have

Asked by fran January 4, 2018

Answers

Disregard the "specs"... I ran. dB meter, and it seems notably quieter than 64-6 dB that was reading. The curious thing is that it's "exhaust note" fq is lower, so it doesn't "shriek" at you, like a weedeater. More basso, doesn't seem as loud.

Asked by Skippy July 10, 2018

My generator came with a 8.5 Amp breaker. That means this generator only has 935 Watts (8.5Amps) not the claimed 1400 Watts (12.73 Amp). It would run everything except the AC, most likely. Without the fridge amperage (listed on fridge) it is impossible to say for sure. It runs my home fridge Rated at 7.2 Amps max (=surge or start). Volts x Amps = Watts or 110v x ?A = ?W Just remember you have exactly 935 Watt constant power, with slight surge for starting electric motors (slow trip breaker).

Great generator for dry camping.
Perfect generator for boondocking, or dry camping. Fits perfectly on the back of my rack on my 31 foot travel trailer. Runs my 15K a/c, fridge, televisions, lights, and sump pump with no problem. It is a little louder compared to inverter generator but for $250 you can’t beat it. I’ve ran it for 5 days in a row without an issue, and that’s in the Texas heat with it 108 degrees. Again, for the price this genny is a beast.

havent used this for a long period of time yet but on the few test runs I did it performed well. It started right up each time and I ran it for about 10 minutes. It powered my refrigerator , small A/C window unit (5000 BTU) and also a 1500w space heater. I didn't run all 3 at once but it did not hesitate running each one. Its a bit loud but that was expected similar to a gas lawn mower. I put wheels on it with some spare parts I had in the shed. its heavy to move around without them , weighs about 80-90 lbs without gas.

Put oil and gas into it, started right away. Then using my apple watch I took sound level readings, holding my watch about 5ft above the ground. Readings were in my back yard with unit sitting on my concrete patio, about 15 feet from my house. No load on the generator. Ambient Noise Level, i.e. nothing running: 39db Distance (feet)/Reading (DB) 2 / 76 4 / 75 8 / 72 12 / 71 16 / 69 20 / 68 24 / 67 28 / 66 32 / 66 36 / 64 40 / 63 (this was inches from my wooden fence)

Easy start easy direction all i needed was oil and gas . Has never failed to crank on the first pull . Wish it were a tad quieter and the small gauge keeps coming loose easy to tighten back up but I'm afraid eventually the small nuts will fall off and i wont notice till too l but for the price perfect.
