Product Q&A

I have a Makita 7" angle grinder that I use to cut and grind stone. It has a 15 amp motor which I calculate to draw 1800 watts on average, but I'm not sure about the start-up draw, which could be 3 times that much. What size generator do you recommend I buy to use with this grinder, if I do not use any other appliances at the same time?

Answer
The best way to size the unit is to find out the starting amp draw on the grinder which you are correct to say that it can be 3 times, maybe even 5 times higher then the running load. It is also good to double check your model number on the Makita, if it has a "S" at the end of the model number you may have a soft start unit.

You should take an amp meter and test the starting amperage then use the following formula to properly size the unit. (Starting Amps x Volts = Watts)

Note: Proper sizing of the generator is based on 80% of the generators running capacity, so when a large load kicks in the unit has enough flexibility to handle it and still provide clean voltage output.
