I had to purchase 65 feet of this cable. I installed it in 2" PVC conduit like the power company said to do and when installing it into the conduit the PVC shaves large chunks of the sheathing off the cable because the sheathing is really soft. I found it hard to imagine it could be direct buried with sheathing so soft.
The wire does what it should but at almost $2 a foot at my store I thought direct bury cable would be tougher. We have very rocky soil so the sheathing was very important.

Best deal I could find on ALuminum wire. The 4/0 is thick. Needed for a 130 ft run underground in conduit. This is stiff and difficult to pull. Use liquid wax to make it easier. The only issue with the product is the outer sheathing. It did get nicked and scuffed through the top layer in a few places. It has a couple of layers so not a huge problem.
