Stepped down to 36 volts, that's 300 watts and 900 watts respectively. Alternatively, 0.4 horsepower and 1.2 horsepower. If you had the full 1000 watts available, that's 1.3 horsepower and 4 horsepower for the 3000.

Some have warnings others have cut outs while charging..
Damaged one of the 12v when I hit the go switch while it was charging..

That math is off. 8 amps at 110 volts is not the same as 8 amps at 36 volts. If you step it down, you get more amps. It's the watts the stay the same.

Ya can't because of the modified sine inverter problem I mentioned above. My guess would be to derate by at least 50%, so the 22 amp model would be barely good for 10 amps.

The amperage is the same if you just use a resistor which is the option I'm talking about.
A transformer won't work because it's a "modified sine" inverter

Heh, heh! I have a couple million miles in 18-wheelers, so I do know about gears!
Then there are my pedal vehicles, such as the one in my avatar. Even those benefit from two or three gears to choose from on the Playa, mostly depending on the wind.
I was moving the Baby Grand the other day, inside the garage, and the legs broke. Not as loud as I had hoped, but.... Now I definitely HAVE TO build a steel chassis under it! :lol:
