Why is it only good for 30 amps if it is #8 wire?

Asked by: Ron
Actually, that is a misprint. It is rated at 40 amps, if the cord is two "hot" conductors or less, which would occur in a three-wire 120/240 volt circuit, plus ground. For more info, just consult a data table, such as "ampacity of soow cord" from one of the major wire manufactures or the NEC.

Customer Reviews

(By-the-Foot) 8-4 Black Stranded Cu SOOW Cord is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked as Expected I decided on the purchase of this particular cord based on "UL Listed" shown in the product specifications. When I received the cord, it was identified as Non-UL. I took a star off for this reason. The cord worked sufficiently for the job otherwise.
