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

I you read description on that it tells you continuouse output 2.8kw which is 2800w so it wouldnt be any good that one

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,

I use a 5.5 generator with my guttervac, and it handles continuous running of all 3 motors without any loss of suction.

 

Bit of an overkill, but would rather have too much than not enough.

Plus, if I ever suffer a power cut at home, I can run the house off of it!

Mines not much smaller than that! Weighs about 90kgs, bit of an effort pushing it up the ramps into the back of the van.
