    As a rough guideline a 1/2hp reactive load has a draw of 2000 watts at start and 1000 watts running. 3/4 hp would be 3000 at start and 1500 running. 1hp draws about 4500 at start and 2000 running.

    I run a 3/4 & 1 hp at the same time off of a Honda EU2000 w/o any issues. I installed an after market fuel pump on it and feed it with a 55 gal drum of gas. I'm very pleased with my ice eaters that I purchased from Mallard View.

    Honda EU3000, not 2000.
