My reason for asking is I believe DVC indicated he had a generator that wood not run his stoker.
If I am incorrect DVC please excuse.
Correct. My little 8000w 13hp honda, does not supply true sine waveform. I believe not many small gens do. The larger, whole house systems all seem to provide it, though. Read the sales brochure for each generator. If it provides true sinewave, it will definately say so in the brochures. Read before you buy
