i want to be able to take this unit out in the field . what size generator would i need to power this unit?

Asked by: texas fireman
To operate on 230 input your generator should be able to produce 20 amps at 230 volts continuous(5000 watts). This unit also requires a separate air supply of 3cfm@90-120psi.

Does it need a air compressor also?

Asked by: Rickytpiper
Yes, you will want a compressor that is capable of putting out at least 5 CFM @ 90psi.
