GENERATOR SIZE What Size Generator Do I Need?

Generator output is usually specified in kVA (kilovolt amp), which is generally greater than the actual useable power. ie. only 80% of the stated kVA rating.

This is known as the power factor and must be taken into account when placing your order.

To work out the power factor ( useable power),
multiply the stated kVA rating by 0.8. Example: 5 kVA x 0.8 = 4 kW (kilowatts) Power Tool Examples:
9¼ " Circular Saw 1550W
Router 1600W
5" Mini Grinder 1020W
Planer 550W
9" Angle Grinder 2000W
½" Drill 800W
Kettle 3000W
NOTE: 1kW = 1000W

Therefore a 5kVA generator should power one kettle and a ½" drill.

NOTE: If the wattage of the tool etc. is not known, it can be obtained by multiplying the voltage by the amperage.

For example, a 240V drill with a running current of 5 amps will have a wattage of :- 240v x 5A = 1200W (1.2kW)
