    A:  Yes, this wire is rated for up to 600 volts, and at 50 amps. My generator makes 12000 watts, and this is the correct cord for that application.

    A:  Generally a 8/4 less than 50ft the max amp you would want flowing through the cable is 40 amps (4.8Kw) peak with a continuous load of 80% of that (32A or 3,840w). For lengths greater than 50ft however a 30A (3600w) peak or continuous 25A/3000w load.

      A:  Richard, I think the issue might have been with not having enough inventory loaded to meet your desired quantity. The inventory has been updated for this item, please try again and let us know if the issue persists.

        A:  I would call home depot. Looks like someone coded an error into the website (my opinion). Since the whole spool is 289ish dollars and 75 ft is about 60 dollars less

            A:  Not sure of you question but according to Allied Wire and Cable (AWC) the cable is nominally 0.78 inched in diameter. http://www.awcwire.com/part.aspx?partname=soow-8/4

                A:  The outer diameter is just over 3/4 of an inch, 0.780 inches. You would need to measure the device to be sure but it is substantially larger than a half inch in diameter.

                  A:  Please consult with your local electrician. The above advice is based upon the current edition of the National Electric Code (NEC). Free access to the latest version of the NEC is available online at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess. The NEC and local building codes regulate the types of wire and cable that can be used in specific electrical applications, as well as the manner of installation. Check your local building codes before you start any wiring and cable electrical project and be sure to obtain required permits. When your work is complete, always have it inspected for compliance with local codes to ensure that it has been safely installed.

                      It's SO cord and did what we need it to do. Price wasn't terrible and it came through in a pinch when we ran out of 8/4 while working on a project.

                      I bought this for an emergency generator. I hope I never need to find out how well it works. I did do a test run to check my connections. But I am not sure of the rating 12,000 watt capacity.

                          I was very thankful that I could get exactly what I wanted and at a great price. I did not want to buy a full spool of wire at over $400. Thank you Home Depot.

                              Cord is being used to supply power to a temporary panel from a 10 KW generator. Cord is strong, flexible, weatherproof, durable and doing the job as intended.
