I cant find anything on the powermatic tool that you listed, but is this something recent? Look at the nameplate on the machine and if it a large unit it would probably say around 15-20 amps but to start the unit sometimes it pulls more than the listed rating and could be causing your problem. Check the outlet that you have it plugged into, is there anything else online with this that would draw a lot of current when starting e.g. freezer. If you can provide me with some more data I will check other floor sanders and see what I can come up with.

this unit takes 90 pounds per constant for desired function. Most machine shops have Huge compressors that will run these at a constant rate ,, also check the exhaust ( towards the vacuum hookup to check for clogs,, ) compressors that have a gauge that read 90 lbs doesn't necesarly mean they have the CFM to keep the pressure at what you need to keep it running

Clarke plate sander vs drum for a floor that only needs


drum sander leaves chatter marks you must plate these out. belt sander is the best way to go, however it will take longer to just plate than to drum and plate. for light sanding i would start with a 60 grit on the drum, then 80, then 100. plate with 100 screen till chatter free, then final with 150 screen. this is if you intend to go to raw wood.

Sander failure when using honda generator


If you are using a 220 volt 4 hp floor sander, which is 95% of all floor sanders. you CANNOT use a generator less than a 25KV, which is about the size of a van. All Floor sanders draw over 80 amps at start up and during floor sanding all sanders run around 25 amps. If your motor is a Capactor style motor you can do detrimental damage to the motor. Many of my customers have done it in the past.
