Portable Generators for Power Tools

If you’re working in different locations, or just have some jobs to complete outside of your home, we have some advice about portable generators for power tools. You won’t always need a generator to use your tools – but there are some cases where you may need to hire one. That’s when you should get in touch with our team to hire portable power generators in Melbourne. 

Here are some examples of situations where you could use a portable generator: 

  • Construction sites – in the early phases of construction, many homes do not have a suitable electrical supply for construction workers – this is where a generator will come in handy. When you hire with East Coast Generators & Generator Rentals Australia, you can trust that your generator has been tested and tagged and is safe to use on site. 
  • Chopping down wood – if your chainsaw is electric, you probably won’t have access to mains power in the middle of the bush. You can connect your power tool to a portable power generator and get the job done ASAP.
  • Safety first – if you’re working on a site where the mains power is not safe to use, you can always use a portable generator for a reliable source of energy when you need it. 

When it comes to choosing portable generators for power tools, there are a few things to consider. Firstly, do you want to buy or rent your generator? If you only need the generator for a one off job, we recommend a rental. If you work in the construction industry, we highly recommend purchasing your own generator. 

At East Coast Generators & Generator Rentals Australia, we rent and sell new and second hand generators in Melbourne. Contact us today for more information about our services and a chat about which generator is right for you. 

If you’re thinking about buying a generator, consider how much power you will need. This depend largely on the nature of your work and the type of power tools you intend to use. 

If you’re a professional tradesmen or builder, we recommend a generator with at least 5kVA. What can a 5kVA generator power? This should be able to cope with saws, welding equipment, commercial pressure washers, and pumps.To make sure you have enough power, you need to 

  • Check the wattage requirements of each appliance (both running power and starting up power) 
  • Figure out how many tools you’ll be using at once and calculate the maximum wattage

Just after a generator to power some tools at home or in the shed? You probably only need a small generator, less than 5kVA. If you’re only using one tool at once (like a drill or a sander) you will only need a small generator. There’s no need getting a heavy duty generator if you don’t need one – it’s much more cost effective.
