Actually, they are resistive loads, and resistive loads do that.

There are two kinds of reactive loads, inductive loads and capacitive loads. Motors are mostly inductive loads, but may have some capacitance.

He stated that the unit was drop-shipped to his house, looks like no shipping. May be worth a look. And I have no affiliation.

The Yamaha 3000iSEC for $1700 does not include the 500 watt boost feature of the Yamaha 3000iSEB for a slightly higher price. I bought my 3000iSEB for around $1800 off ebay from and have been happy with it for the first 28 hrs. of operation.
