power tools and 2500 watt generator?
I have a Honda 2500 watt generator (old style, non inverter). I am planning on running tools that are 15 amps or less. For example a 15amp planer. I realize motors draw far more at start up but have no way of knowing how much. At 15 amps my generator will run this planar as it will only take 1800 watts. However, can anyone give me an idea how much a power tool, such as a planer, would use at start up? Thanks for your ideas.
