    I was thinkin on buying a small portable compressor. It's a campbell hausfield 2 gallon 110V. It didn't say how many watts it draws. I was wondering if it would run off my 1000W peak 900W continuos output generator? The generator doesn't have an output amperage on it. This air compressor is $100 so I don't want to waste the money if it won't work with my generator.

    Yes it would work.. Can't remember what the ratio is off of the top of my head. But my 650 watt gen. overloads at 15 amps. So that would be fine...Dan
