Ryobi 2200 with McColloch chainsaw

Do you think I can use this McCulloch chain saw for limited light duty use with this Ryobi generator? I think it might be borderline but usable.

Don't you think you'd be better off just buying a gas chainsaw? It'd certainly be cheaper than an inverter generator..

Yes of course, and that is the plan, but I need this as a temp solution.

I have the chain saw and I have the generator.

I also believe that little generator will power the saw, but it'll just about max it out. The saw might be just a little slow on starting till the generator RPMs can pick up.

Folow up

Yesterday tried out the generator - saw combination. Works like a charm. At startup the saw will pull near max amps from gen but will run at normal speed thereafter. Will give it real test latter in the week.
