Answer: 
It means 14 gauge wire with 3 conducting wires inside the cord. Because my mower is 13 amp and I knew I would need 100' of cord to cover my yard, I chose the 14 gauge medium duty cord.

Answer: 
Yes, this is a 14 gauge cord. The number 14 is the gauge (size) of the wires. The number 3 is the number of wires in the cable (cord) (One hot (black), one neutral (white) and one ground (green)).

Answer: 
14 is the individual wire gage. Three is the number of wires in the cable. If you are making a long run such as 100 feet, using something that uses 15 amps- circular saw, etc. 14 gage will over heat. get 12 gage. The longer you run an extension cord or any wire the smaller the gage you will need to carry the current safely.

Answer: 
The orange extension cord is 16 AWG rated to carry 10 amps. It is light duty wire. In general the worst that will happen if you try to push to many amps through it is that it will over heat and potentially melt. That would/should short the circuit throwing your circuit breaker. With luck it won't fail and turn you into a crispy critter.

The orange extension cord is 16 AWG rated to carry 10 amps. It is light duty wire. In general the worst that will happen if you try to push to many amps through it is that it will over heat and potentially melt. That would/should short the circuit throwing your circuit breaker. With luck it won't fail and turn you into a crispy critter.
The amperage draw of you chain saw is more important than the voltage. The length of the distance between the electricity start point and end usage point - AKA saw - makes a difference also. The further you are from the electric outlet the lower the gage wire you will need. Once you know how long an extension cord you need and the amps draw of the saw you can check NEC (National Electric Code) charts to determine the size of wire to use. Your HD rep should be able to tell you what wire you need, if you have the specs. of your intended usage.
My son used a HD 16? inch chain saw, drawing just under 15 amps, with 16 gage wire and had no problems cutting up a large tree which had fallen in my back yard. The wire was 100 feet long. It did get warm, but did not fail or throw 15 amp circuit breakers. An appropriate wire would have been 14 awg, which is 15 amp rated for short distances. Read Less

Note 1 Numbers are rounded to the nearest 0.1V and 0.1%.
Note 2 Voltage drops shown are the same for any single-phase supply voltage. Voltage drop depends only on amps.
Note 3 Values are approximate, as they are affected by factors such as temperature.
Note 4 For a given cord size and amps, voltage drop is uniform over a length of cord, so for example, a 40 ft cord has
twice the voltage drop as a 20 ft cord. That means the numbers in the voltage drop columns can be added
together. For example, the voltage drop for a 70 ft cord can be found by adding together the voltage drops for a
30 ft cord and a 40 ft cord. ©

Answer: 
Temperature with normal bounds isn't an issue..The wire is more supple in warm weather. 14 gauge can run 15 amps up to 160 feet. A great distance requires a lower gage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good extension cord for the price Yup it's a 100 foot extension cord. The quality is good. Heavier gauge for higher amperage electric tools and lawn mowers. I bought it specifically for an electric lawn mower. I will use it for power tools as well. Flexible enough for ease of use and coiling or braiding for storage. July 6, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extension Cord The extension cord is fine and I purchased it to use with my snow blower but the snow blower is a two prong and the extension cord is 3 prong. Don't know why you would recommend 3 prong for a two prong snow blower. February 16, 2016
