RE: modified sine wave inverter

I have run my electric hedge trimmer off a 750 watt
Black and Decker inverter from Walmart without a problem.
I think the hedge trimmer has a universal motor in it.
I have also ran a jigsaw and a drill off the same inverter.
I have even ran a weed eater off of it thru an extension cord.
I hook the inverter up to my tractor and the biggest
problem I have is the alternator keeping up with the inverter.
Haven't had any overheating problems with anything ran off my inverter.

I would like to upgrade the alternator on my tractor
and get a bigger inverter. Or just get a seperate generator.
