Portable Cutting?
« on: January 03, 2018, 08:44:32 AM »
Is it possible to take a Vinyl Cutter to outdoor events such as car shows? Id like to be able to cut designs there and then if you get what I mean

Rc-Arty. what do you use for power if you cant use a regular power source.Would a generator work possibly and what rating would be needed or maybe a few big RV batteries with an inverter?  I have no clue . Thanks bud

I use a Honda 2000w generator for long periods of cutting. I also use a 300w power inverter and a 12v car battery for smaller jobs. In the past, I just plugged the inverter into the van's power outlet.

Thanks very much, I was thinking of doing that for like car shows etc I plan on going to but I drive a 1.2L car would I need to have a generator instead do you think it will the 12V be enough to run for a few hours?

Run the inverter only when needed and start the car and let it run for 20 minutes every so often. As long as you use a 300w or lower inverter you should be OK.
