Default North Kansas City Comp Question

Can anyone tell me if a Dewalt 1000 kw generator be enough for this contest. All we are running is lights and a Dewalt torpedo heater and maybe a radio/IPOD. I have never had to use a generator at a contest, electric has always been provided. I have my choice of a Dewalt 1000 kw or a Dewalt 5600kw. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

A 1000 KW generator is HUGE! Might it be a 1000 watt? If it is, I seriously doubt it will pull a heater by itself. Heater and lights? No way.

I don't see either of those model options on the DeWalt website? Are they older?
