Is the circuit breaker a B or C rated breaker, such as B16 or C16? If it is a B breaker, try installing a C breaker that is better suited to handle the inrush of a motor starting. I use C breakers on all circuits that I dedicated to motors.
IS there a way?
my de walt 745 gives an almighty bang when it starts. No, it doesnt trip anything, but its almost frightening when it goes from zero to a million miles an hour in a tenth of a second. :shock:
Sorry, Dominik should not say that the saw was cutting out but what I meant was that the saw was causing the breaker in the consumer unit to trip. Following advice from MikeK, I called the electrician that installed the MCB and the cable to the shed and he is returning to fit a type C breaker. I will report back here if everything works out in case it helps others.
I had the same problem with my dewalt table saw. I use a starting current limiter. I can't post a link but if you Google Renkforce 622412 Starting current limiter you'll find the one I have. Works a charm.
I was kind of interested, but at 55 quid in the UK, plus shipping to me, I'm not that interested ta very much. :roll:
Mine has never tripped a fuse, it just starts very loudly. But as I wear ear protectors when I'm using it, I'll pass. 8) 8)
