    Default Maple cotton/generator

    We have a whirlwind X15a, and we are wondering if a 2200watt inverter suitcase generator will do the job when we go to events without power? Is anyone using this machine/generator combo?

    Find the identification plate on the motor of the cotton candy machine. Multiply the volts times the amps listed on the plate to get the watts. If it's less than 2200 watts it should work.

    Hardest part will be starting the motor. Not sure if that generator is quite big enough
