GREAT Inverter!

"I mounted this inverter in the back of my truck but it draws an INSANE amount of amps at full load! I have 3 Deep Cycle AGM batteries in my truck, two in the engine compartment and one inside a marine battery box mounted on top of the wheel welll. All connections to the inverter are done with 4/0 welding cable for both the HOT and Ground due to the incredible amp draw when running a compressor or anything with high power demand! Due to the extremely sensitive low voltage detection/cutoff, you WILL need to keep the vehicle running while using this so the inverter can see well over the 11.2 volt alarm setting. If it doesn't see a high enough voltage (13.5 volts or above) when a load is put on it, the voltage will drop too much and trigger the Low Volt Alarm or even cut it off! Once these demands are met, you will be able to power incredible equipment! I can run a 3HP compressor AND a 14 inch metal chop saw BOTH AT THE SAME TIME plugged into each of the 20 amp recepticles.This inverter is WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!"

"We have issues with this inverter starting a 1.5 HP compressor, so I would really like to know how yours can start a 3 HP. The only difference with installation is that we are hooked to 2 deep cycle batteries. So far, the only thing that this inverter is good for is charging batteries."
