Use a meter and adjust to 3000/3600rpm or 50/60Hz. Then check output voltage to be in range 230/115V depending on which country you are in. Adjustment is done on the governor to throttle linkages.

### All these answers are for square objects. How do I find the measurements of a round object, i.e. a cement mixer?

Hi Debbie:
You still get to use your calculator, but you need to use the mathematical formulae dealing with circles.
Area = pi times r squared
Volume of a cylinder = Area (of one end) times length.

For your cement mixer, (Average the diameter for simplicity)
All of the measurements need to be in the same units, lets use inches, then convert it to cubic feet.....
the volume would be:
pi (22 divided by 7)
times
1/2 diameter
times
1/2 diameter
times
depth

For my ancient mixer that would be:
22 / 7 x 10" x 10" x 22" = 6,914 cubic inches
1 cubic foot equals 12" x 12" x 12" equals 1728 cubic inches.
6,914 divided by 1728 equals 4 cubic feet.

Now we don't fill it right up, but that is its capacity.

Hope that helps.
By the way, my mixer likes 10 shovel fulls of navvy, 2 shovels of type 10 cement, and about 2 quarts of water to get a nice mix.
I do the water first,
then 5 navvy
then 2 cement
then another 5 navvy,
then just enough water to get the right consistency.
Cheerfuls!

### A belle cement mixer,wont stay on when start button is pushed,changed switch ,still the same?

Sometimes the most simplest of fixes is verifying that you have voltage at your outlet and that you have voltage getting to the motor.

Check the motor's overload button; reset if necessary.
• start capacitor
• run capacitor
• and motor

If anyone of their specs are out of whack, that's the component that is defective and will need to be replaced.

### Why would my generator engine runs great but it will not power any of my tools. what could be the problem?

With no load on the generator, take a voltage reading at the output plug of the generator, if there is no voltage, check to make sure that no breakers are tripped or fuses blown.

### I have a etq 1200 generator that runs but doesnt have ac. what could be the problem?

Check that the GFI receptical is not tripped
Check that there are no blown fuses or tripped breakers
Verify that the engine is running at full RPM
If there is still no output, then either the field needs to be flashed (look on line to find a video on how to do this - YouTube), or the generator will need further diagnostics.

### Why are the mixer barrells on cement trucks always turning?

The are always turning if there is wet cement inside. Because wet cement settles really quickly so if it isn't turning it will dry on the bottom of the mixer.

### Generator doesn't excite with small power tools.

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).
