Things like this i love where 30 year of knowledge come in. Have you run a 110v tool off it ??

No I haven't, although it does run a drill rated at about 600W plugged into the blue 16amp? socket.

There is a far easier way if she is kicking out a good 110 v supply believe me and cheap. Bought a tow along compressor/ generator a few years back and used a step up transformer like in the link below, genny was only a 110 v ex gas board 

 

That's interesting. 

 

Can you get step up transformers that give you more power, say 5000W from a 100volt feed?

Is that at 100v or 240v? Can you get a multimeter on it?if 100v probably drill would be running slow

It was at 100v. Drill probably was running slow.

 

We were trying to 'flash'  the alternator with the drill. (Some kind of black magic electrical voodoo trickery)

Yes that is a 110v to 240v and its a 3.3 kw which is 3300 w - really need to run a big item like a kettle on it which will give you a fair idea. If a 2kw kettle will boil it will rum a 3.3 kva step up transformer

What use is 3.3kva when it's a 10kva generator? Might as well buy a cheap little generator if that's all you need.

You can put a voltage meter on the output and see what she is giving out 

It's giving out 100volts. I would need to step up to 240v and obtain around 5kw to start a 2.2kw motor.

 

I wondered whether you can get transformers that can do this?
