I'm checking through archives.... but a bit more needed. I want to buy a small genny for travelling.... but at the moment am doing up a house I have had cut in half and shifted up from the big smoke to the bush block. Will one of the little camping gennies work hand tools, small concrete mixer, pressure washer, vacuum cleaner? Which do you recommend and at what price?

Cheers RoyceRoyce www.funshow.com.au

gday royce.
the little camping (cheap ones) are about 850 watt.
depending on the wattage of your mixer pressure washer ect if they use 850 watt or less then you wont have a problem i run a 850watt angle grinder of mine and dosnt miss a beat.
the cheap chineese gennys are about $350 for 850 watt.
but i know you can get them in a bigger size not sure of the price.
if you go to www.helton.com.au.
i know member tony and helen sell them at therte site.new job coming so no fraser this time:-((

Hi Royce
Hand tools are fine on the little gennies but larger draw appliances with electric motors requre 2 - 3 times the power to start the motor if you let me know the current/ wattage from the plates on the motors I can advise you further.

I'm not sure!!!
but I will Find out and get back to you later.
Probably worth finding a local distributor as freight could make it a bit dear.
the no e mails and phone calls on these gennies there are a lot of people considering them maybe we should all get together and make a bulk purchase

Hi, about your genie,
if your building and renovating in the bush, youll probably need at least a 2000W genie, as small grinders and drills or other power tools can use a lot of power. Spend a bit extra, but for travelling outback, i think an EU10i would be heaps, depending on how many 240 appliances you take travelling.
