Outstanding! Thank you.
Gord, thanks, found the other thread with your link.
George, it is good to know, but I'm not keen on buying
a new g'set and overloading it from day one with a compressor. More out of fear for the invoice than anything else, you understand.
David, Bauer publish the loads for both start and running. The small g'set theoretically won't do the job but it should have no problem while running. A friend told me he started a Coltri with a 4.5 KVa one but then these compressors have trickery that allows to start it without load.
Palarran, thanks, I think that unit is the same one as the 7KVa. It gives this lower rating at 1500 RPM/50Hz/220V.
As discussed in other threads, my main reason for wanting the smaller unit is to be able to load it to about 75/80 percent when I run it. My current
12KVa unit suffers because I just don't have enough loads to bring it to past 40 percent and most of the time half that. It weighs 200 pounds more and burns double the diesel
