We needed a way to start a chop saw with a universal motor on remote jobsites. Previously, the inrush current from the saw was so high that a 50 ampere circuit breaker was required, even though the FLA of the saw is only 15 amperes. This soft starter was the answer! We have NEVER tripped a circuit breaker while starting the saw since we installed this simple "plug and play" product.
Good morning. I just wanted to reach out to let you know that you guys have a fantastic product! I'm not sure if you have seen/heard about the new onboard generators in the F150s or not, but it's incredible. Mine has 7,200 watts available for tools, campers, etc. When I found out my concrete core drill wouldn't work due to the high in rush current, I was pretty bummed. That's where you guys come along. Your GS11 starter saved the day! I can now officially run every tool on my jobsites, without a stand alone generator! Keep doing what you guys are doing, your product rocks! -John
