My husband is looking for a smaller generator than the 6000w he has, I was told today that in order to run an air compressor he would require a minimum of 5000w, the compressors not a large one, its a portable dual hotdog. He wants to get a 2500w so its easier to move around. The sales person I was speaking to said that the air compressor would burn out the motor of the generator due to the power required to start the compressor.
So what do you guys think? Opinions please
