LOL ....talk about overkill....I needed a 30 ft. 220V extension cord for my welder and priced 8 and 10 ga wire at Lowes and that changed my mind quick.....I got a 30 foot piece of SJO wire from work they were throwing out for FREE! So I just had to buy the plug ends for it.....Only problem was it was 4 gauge!
Yeah, talk about overkill....I had to trim the copper strands some because I couldn't even get them in under the screws on the terminal block of a 50AMP plug....LOL....but hey if its free, its for me....I know that it will certainly carry the amp load, for sure
