    Any 5kw or higher, there is one ive got my eye on called the pramac8000. Perfect for a 3000w guttervac

    So if it says 3200watts (max) / 2800 continuous will it work but I won't get full power or will it just not work?

    No need to say sorry i did the exact same when looking for one, luckily enough my dads a mechanic so engines he knows,

    I thought about that question too, will it work but just not give full power using a 2800w generator, so in theory the guttervac would run at 2800w

    This is a risk you take, it may work but it may not, i rang up a generator place and they advised to get a generator OVER 3000w because they said it may require an addition bit of extra wattage to fire the internal motor in the guttervac,

    Hope that makes sence mate,
