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.

Can a 220volt floor sander be run off a generator


Hi Glen,

Welcome to fixya!

You would have to check the capacity of your generator. If it can handle 220 volts and the amp rating of the floor sander does not exceed the amp rating of the generator, you should be good to go.

Good luck.

Powermatic Band saw 143, when i press the start button the saw turns on but wont stay on. When i release the start button the saw turns off. What is the problem. Please help. Thank You, Lee.


Your powermatic band saw has a Magnetic motor starter. Since it is hard to find parts for the 143 you can remove the power and take the starter apart and clean the contacts. If that fails you can take it off and take it to a Electrical Supply Store and have them match you up with one that will work.

The way the switch works is when you push the on button it picks a relay that starts the motor and also has a contact the holds the relay picked. when you push the stop button it drops the circuit.

This is a safety feature to prevent the motor from restarting after a power failure until you hit the button

Hope this answers all your questions

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.

I have a Powermatic 66 that trips breaker


Either it has a problem with a blade brake or the motor is siezing. Or the is a wiring problem. With the unit unplugged check and see if you can turn the blade by hand, if not the motor is the problem. If it does you could still have a motor problem by it drawing to much amperage or the is a wiring problem.

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.
