Any plans by the GZ team to offer a beefy, 240V-capable system?

I'm interested in powering a 5hp (~3.7kw) electric sawmill off grid. It runs at 230V, ~20A rated, with a Locked Rotor Amperage (starting current) of ~125 amps.

Thanks!

P.s Example from a competitor's site, plus my wish list bulleted below:

  • Make it GZ styling = beautiful
  • NEMA 3R rated for outdoors 😎☔.
  • Pallet fork friendly carry
  • Optional casters for concrete/garage floor, or big pneumatic wheels for grassy terrain
  • Nice large inverter and input capacity
  • Marketed more towards off grid homesteaders, RV-ers, and farmers

    Hi @Kilt,

    At this time we do not have any products that can handle this but we are looking for options to do this in the future.

    Hi @Kilt,

    You would need to chain two separate Pro 4000 units. Each PRO 4000 comes with one inverter.

    @Kilt,

    The setup will need 2 separate Yeti PRO 4000s, each one has a single 120V inverter. There will be at least one new smart combiner cable that will connect communications between the 2 yetis to allow them to sync AC output waves and produce AC power at either 240V up to 30A or 120V up to 60A depending on the inverter stack setting.
