Hi, I own a hatsuyuki hc-8e, 115 volt version. I'm having a really difficult time finding an inverter. I know what I need according to specs, however, I've tried multiple inverters and still the electrical surge at startup is too much for any inverter to handle.
I even tried a 5000 continuous/10000 watt surge modified sine-wave inverter. WAY MORE than it should need to run off 12 volt deep cell batteries. No go.
Am I missing something? We've tried multiple brands, multiple kinds/brands, etc. The only think I can think of is to find out what make and model other people are using because we've tried everything just short of the exact same model that someone else may be using.
Any help would be most appreciated. We are tired of shlepping the machine and heavy batteries around. In the meantime, we've purchased a 12 volt model. However, we want to be able to run the 115 volt as well.
