I plan on using little wonder electric hedge trimmers for some work this year (this is not a debate of gas vs. elec., I have and will use both). I need a lighter trimmer due to rotator cuff problems so I want to get a generator like the Honda 1000i to run them. I will only be using one set at a time. The hedge trimmers appear to use about 450 watts and the generator is rated at 1000 watts max, 900 watts continuous. It sure sounds like enough power, but my question is...is it? Does anyone use a 1000 watt generator to run hedge trimmers? Any hints or suggestions? I want the 1000w since it's a little less than 30lbs and therefore relatively light. The 2000w are closer to 50lbs. Thanks in advance!
