A match made in heaven

So today I had a quick project where I needed to secure a couple of things to the side of my foundation using some Tapcon screws. I would have had to run an extension cord about 150 feet from one side of my house to the other. Instead I just grabbed my little 800 W generator, checked to make sure my drill wouldn’t overpower it, and plugged it in. The specifications plate on the drill says it draws about 800 W peak – just at the top range of the generator. Sure enough, I plugged it in and it all works fine. I drilled 4 holes without having to unroll and wind back up 150 feet of extension cord. And the generator still runs fine. I’m still glad I bought it, and this is exactly the kind of use I had in mind for it.
