I'm a small contractor who does many non-structural remodeling jobs. I've been in construction for 15 years and have used many tools and many extension cords.
Since 12 guage cords are commonly available that is primarily what I've used in the past. My experience has been that most of my higher power tools do not run as well on them (even 25 foot cords) as they do when plugged directly into the wall. With the 10 guage cord I can no longer tell the difference.
My 15 amp chop saw, my worm drive saw and my 8 1/2 inch sliding miter saw all run perfectly with the 50 foot extension. I am even able to run my 1 1/2 horsepower Emglo compressor through a 25 foot length. I was never able to do this before -- the compressor was very fussy and I had never been able to use any kind of extension cord with it until I moved to 10 guage.
Anyway, I tried it out this fall with a toro electric vac/blower, and had the same problem, only this time I ended up with some melted plastic and some really nasty smelling smoke. It turns out that the connectors inside the female end of this cord are placed very far back into the molded block and there was very little surface area of actual plug contact, which led to the problem. (I was using the cord lock correctly with this one, too).
It could just be an issue with toro electric power tools but just be aware. Other than that, seemed to be a pretty decent cord - didn't kink a lot and I ran over it a couple of times with the snowblower and I'm still here writing this, so it's fairly tough as well... Can't give it more than 3 stars because of the odd female plug design.
After all, you spent the money for the tool...spend a little more for a cord that will keep it running right.
