Generator

So I'm looking into a silent generator. Im planning on running my MOTY Tire warmers, and a few fans at most. I dont really need anything else. Maybe charge my phone on it...

What would I need wattage wise? Would a smaller 1000w genny run that or am I looking more at a higher one?

Edit:

Im looking at this one. https://www.yamahamotorsports.com/ge...els/ef2000isv2

You will need to gather the peak current on what you plan on running. To calculate the size of gen you need just use a simple formula: Voltage * Current (Amps) * .8 (Power Factor) / 1000

Example: 120VAC * 30A * .8 = 2880/1000 = 2.8KW (2880 Watts)

How many watts is your warmers rated at? Moto-D warmers are 750 to 800 watts so you can get away with a 1000W generator, over 1000 you'll be looking at a 2000W generator.

This is all I can gather from the warmers. This information is on the website.

CE product 115v system (US plug) 10A circuit required

So Would there be anything on the physical item to tell me how much they draw at start up, then to just run them?

Edit: I just looked all over the warmers, all I could find was a tag that said Volts:110. Nothing about amp draw or anything else. :(

Based on 10A circuit required, you are looking at 960 watts to run the warmers only. You would be safe using a 2kw gen like the yamaha you are looking into. If you are able and the prices aren't that much different, I would go with a 3kw gen so you can run basically anything needed for a track weekend (minus the A/C).
