    My generator is 2.4kva (Clark FG2500) powers my 1400w guttervac just fine.

    I have exactly that generator and it works fine on my skyvac atom which is 1200w. I cant imagine any problems with a 1400w.

    I have the 3000w gutter sucker and the power is excellent.
    Wish I went with alloy poles as the carbon ones seem to start splitting at the ends.

    I have a 3000w vac and if I turn just one motor one I find that it won't suck buggery.

    In fact, I used it on a job today and with 3 motors running it wouldn't suck. The filter was damp from the last job but these are supposed to be wet/dry vacs. I tried putting a piece of plastic bag over the inlet before and that helped keep the filter dry of sorts. I ended up having to take the filter out to do the job today. I'm going to end up wrecking it at this rate. Anyone else find when the filter gets wet they lose suction?
