Hi from New Zealand. Do any of you mobile sharpeners have definite views on whether its best to provide power to your sharpening machines and lights from a small generator such as Honda's EU 10i or a power inverter and a bank of batteries? I currently use a Honda but would welcome feed back for next time round.
I have my opinion. I would go with the inverter and bank of batteries! It is quieter, cleaner and once you have all of the components, you can replace each as they fail. What I mean by that last statement is if a battery goes bad, I just have to replace a battery. If the inverter goes bad, I replace the inverter. If a generator goes bad, you have to repair or replace the whole thing.
This is my opinion. What is yours? Use the comment section below to share your point of view. Also I included some links to my favorite inverter and batteries in the post. Click on the colored words and take a look.
