Running Electric Motors

We are often asked if our generators are powerful enough to run certain size electric motors. The only way we can advise on this with certainty is if you know how many Watts your motor will draw on start up and whilst running.

If you don’t have this information then the chart below can be used as a guide on the average draw that an electric motor will require. This is strictly to be used as a guide only. We cannot guarantee that these figures will convert directly to your electric motor, though they do hold true for most motors.
