I have run both my 240volt Ts55 and Ts75 on a generator with no ill effects. (Not at the same time, obviously..... :o )

I do plug them into an Anti-Spike multi plug first, then plug the multi plug into the CT dust extractor, just in case there is a surge from my generator. Better safe than sorry.

I feel certain that the newer "inverter" generators would run them fine.  Made for delicate electronics.

+2 on "inverter" generators.

An appropriately sized Honda or Yamaha should be exactly what you need. And they're quiet, too!
