Yellow Jacket Extension Cords


The female on mine went bad in the first year, I replaced it with a Hubble plug, works fine now.

Yellow Jacket Extension Cords


my main chords are the bosch 12 gauge chords. though they arent actually made by bosch . their soft rubber so they stay flexible in cold weather. husky chords are alright but their stiff. just look for 10 gauge or 12 gauge chords at different shops and see if their really floppy when warm. if they are their usually good

one bosch chord is 6 years old the other 4, the male end on one has been replaced with levitron heavy duty end the female ends are cut off when new and replaced immediately with locking chord ends.. once clicked in you have to release it like a air hose fitting.. though much more money their the only locking plug end that actually works. you can easily lower portable saws by the chord without tying off. even yank on the chord when its fetched up without any issue
