I take care of my cords as best I can, when rolling them up I do it neatly, don't let them get knots, wipe them down when muddy.
They can spend weeks and months rolled out on the job site getting walked on, lumber drug over and dropped on, driven over by trucks, used and drug through the dirt, gravel, mud, snagged on any many of things, spend weeks outside in the rain and snow., they really do take a lot of abuse. They roll up easy in freezing temperatures, and better then many, so called, cold temp. cords.
There was no question what brand to get when I needed to replace a cord.
In any job, whether we're talking money, time, materials, tools or power, always plan for overruns and for more than you think you will need. You will not be sorry.
In a medium-duty extension cord with #14 gauge wire with 15A rating, you will lose 9.1V or 7.6% of your power in 100 feet of cord.
In a heavy-duty extension cord like this Yellow Jacket with #12 gauge wire with 15A rating, you will lose only 5.7V or 4.8% of your power in 100 feet of cord.
In any given cord size and amps, voltage drop is directly porpotional to the length of cord. A 100 foot cord has twice the voltage drop as a 50 foot cord.
Regardless of how well I have planned a job, for some mysterious reason which probably can be traced back to the creation of man, I will need more power. In my case, the need for one more tool at the work sight is a given right up to the point where the job is completed and the clean up begins.
Thus far, I haven't been able to find an extension cord that will provide an extra pair of hands and a strong back.
I keep a Yellow Jacket 2882 12/3 15-Amp SJTW Contractor 2-Foot Extension Cord with Lighted Power Block handy so I'll have 2 extra recepticals for tools if needed.
The product description is accurate. A lifetime warranty and meeting OSHA specifications seals the deal.
As always, more power to you.
You really don't need a cord this thick to power most home appliances, and tools. You can run almost any 120volt device with a 16/3 thickness extension cord; however there are some applications which call for a cord of this thickness. Once such application is an electric chainsaw I recently purchased which draws a full 15 amps of power. This was the minimum thickness of 100 foot cord that was advisable for said electric chainsaw.
Extension cords are not high on features. This one does have lighted ends, which are nice "let's say" if you have a power outage, and you turn on your generator, at night, and then run an extension cord from your generator into the house... at least you'll be able to see the female end of the cord, in the dark, so that you may plug a light into it, or instead plug in your TV if that has a higher priority.
This is a nice extension cord and there are many cords, at local stores, which are less expensive but appear to have the same thickness as this one. This is an illusion! If stores are selling a 100ft. cord which is as thick as this one, and the price is much lower, it's because their cord is a small wire cord which has a very very thick plastic insulation around it. Thick plastic insulation is a gimmick and is no substitute for the numbers. The numbers for this cord are 12/3 and the numbers for the cheaper immitation at your local store are probably much higher and thus much inferior. Remember, plastic does not conduct electricity, so you don't want thick plastic... you want thick metal. With quality cords, such as this one, the metal wire inside the plastic insulation is copper and thick copper at that! Copper is super expensive, so when you pay that extra money to get this cord, it's because you are paying for all that copper... and you will know it when you hold this cord because it is noticeably heavier than the cheapy cords. Buy this cord and hold onto it for 20 years, and you might be able to melt it down, for the copper, and finance your kid's education with the money from selling the copper... but, don't hold your breath on the price of copper going to $6000 per pound.
If you do buy this 12/3 cord, you'll appreciate that it is almost impossible to get this cord permanently twisted and tangled, which invariably happens to the 16/3 cheapy cords.
Seniors would do well to think twice before buying this cord, though, because some may liken moving this cord around to dragging an elephant by the tail. For everyone else who needs a thick, quality, HEAVY DUTY extension cord, this one fits the bill nicely.
