    If your talking about 110 V fans? You will need at least a 5K generator to run them at full speed or load at the same time. Most 5K generators max at 50 amps...If that helps.

    34 inches across, 24 inches deep, and 18 inches wide... Those are the exact dimensions of what you need

    A 1 hp motor draws a hell of a lot more than 746 watts on start up. A 1/2 hp water pump takes every bit of my 2000 watt gen. So for 2 1hp fans you're gonna need at least 8000 watts.
