Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
Briggs and Stratton BSQ 1000 suitcase generator.
I've bought this generator 2nd hand in v. good condition.
If I plug in my hammer drill it doesn't turn or does turn intermitantly.
If I plug in a cement mixer, the generator excites and will then run the drill properly but only if the mixer is running as well!
Somewhere on the Generator is an Idle Control switch, turning this to the off position will stop the generator idling down in the first place. You'll need to do this to use tools that don't draw enough current to trip the idle control system into revving the engine.
It may say just how much current you have to draw in the manual (hint, hint).
