Powering of PAT machine

It is becoming increasingly important with PAT testing to offer a holistic approach to customers and offer something a little different to attract new clients. Many of my clients are carpenters for large housing firms or shed builders whom often call for appliance testing on site. Sometimes there is mains power that I can tap into but other times this is not possible. My question relates to powering my PAT tester and printer from a battery / inverter set up, is this possible?

I tried this with a 400w inverter just to change some settings. It was not man enough to do the boot up. Mine is the Europa Plus.

I would think that if you had a meaty inverter, the machine would moan about missing earth, but would do the tests.
