I was skeptical it would work with my 120v 3/4HP above ground well pump as it drew over 50A peak and my 4000W inverter wouldn't start it. Now It draws 20-25a peak and 1100W constant until cutoff. The inverter handles it fine now and no light dimming either.
We are using this unit with a Ryobi 12” miter saw which is rated at 12 amps. The soft starter is a major improvement for the first 2 startups. But once the units cooling fan starts up I noticed that motor startup is not as smooth. Once the fan shuts off, motor once again is normal.
no issues, works well, though I run it for only thirty seconds max so far with a worm-drive saw to reduce kick for finishing cuts. UPC billed me $36 in various fees for shipping into Canada, though. Ouch.
Agree with Alvin Berndt; no more bang! Use the C10 with a table saw and a miter saw. Suspect I've come close to 20 starts per hour but wish now I had purchased the GS10 for unlimited starts.
Haven't used it a whole lot, but seems to be all that it is advertised. My tablesaw doesn't start with a bang anymore--sure is nice!! The only down side is when the fan kicks on, my shop radio goes nuts with static.
