answer 2
This generator will run your shop vac with power to spare as Power, Watts is equal to Volts x Amps which in your case is 960 Watts (120 Volts x 8 Amps). The generator is rated for 2000 Watts max output and 1900 watts steady state, however the rating on the front panel where the power output (plugs) is 120 Volts at 20 Amps for 2400 watts. So either way it can run your shop-vac at that draw all day long so buy it with confidence.

Staff Answer
An inverter generator is a power generator that can process raw power into a power feed similar to the power received through power lines. The generator part of an inverter generator is usually powered by gasoline or diesel fuel. "Inverter" means that the power is converted from direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). Inverter generators are safe to be used on sensitive equipment such as computers and tvs.

Question

Can this truly handle 15 amps?

I know 15 amps is 1875 watts and since I'm interested in this for construction tools of which many run at 15 amps would it be cutting it too close and would the surge watts be too much for this little guy?

The portable compressor would require a 5500 watt generator to start the two horsepower motor. The 2000 watt generator will not have enough power to run the compressor.
