Question about Hammering
I have a Generac MC 5500 portable generator. It was used 12-15 times last year with no problems and then one day when it was being used the power shut down. It ran fine with one item running (7amps). When another item (6.8 amps) was turned on the power shut off. I reset the reset switch and it worked fine until a second item was plugged in and turned on again. It never did this before with the same two items being used every time the generator has been run. What could the problem be?
When power tools get old they draw more amperage. 6.8 amps new might be 8 amps. over loading when older.
