Makita does not recommend using generators with our compressors. However, if you must use a generator, a 20 AMP high quality generator should be able to power the MAC700.

All signs point to yes, this compressor is rated somewhere around 12.5amps I believe, under the 15 amp mark, one of the nice things for those who suffer from 15 amp circuits and always throw breakers on start-ups from other similarly sized compressors. It doesn't even dim the lights in my garage, and I run on a 20amp circuit.

i assume that you are talking about a 2400 watt generator? Probably since most generators will actually give a little more than the rated number for a few seconds. Enough to get the compressor to turn over. My little hot dog compressor runs fine on a 2800 watt inverter running off 12 volt batteries. I am pretty sure the hot dog is rated at a much lower draw than 20 amps at 120 volts so you should be fine. 20 amps x 120 volts = 2800 watts

It does not take a rubber hose. The compressor has an automatic style air coupler, which accepts 1/4" industrial interchange plugs (and maybe some others, I did not try it).

You could custom mount this to a wall, but there is no included provision for mounting. You could probably install a sturdy shelf and then bungee cord the unit on the shelf so it does not vibrate off. I would not put it any higher than waist height or so for safety.

How fast can you pull the trigger? This unit refills from 100psi to 135 psi in less than 20 seconds. Amazing. You shouldn't have any issues with any nail guns.
