[Costco] 12/3 100ft SJTW extension cord 15A 1875W $39

Prime branded, excellent deal if you need such long extension cord to walk around with a leaf blower, electric mower, snow blower or a power tool in the backyard (perhaps even a small generator?)
Good for -40C

Heavy gauge AWG 12 to minimise voltage drop and minimise resistance due to the length, you can safely pull 15A through that cord without overheating it.

Thanks for the heads up but this neither a hot deal or sale. It’s the everyday regular price.

It is a good price for that length, that gauge, no doubt.
It is, as 2kaccordcoupe pointed out, the regular price at Costco.

That's a good power cord. Need a long cord for the snow blower.

Yeah noticed they were yellow from old pictures, is the color change a good or bad thing lol?

I recently bought some 14/3 50ft SJEOW (TPE) at CT for $40 also.. and that one is blue with red lines Face With Tears Of Joy

Maybe they changed suppliers, the yellow ones went up to $44.99 then $49.99 then along came orange back at $39.99

Yellow ones are trisource cords with strap to hold. 100ft available for $54.99 while 100ft orange ones are $39.99 and have one source. These are Costco normal price.

I have both.

The yellow ones aren't flexible in cold weather, despite the claim on the box. There are lots of complaints in the snowblower threads of the Costco yellow cords being very stiff/ rigid

Hopefully, the orange ones are better

My freezer isn't roomy enough but if someone has a chest freezer and bought the orange, can they try to freeze it for science? :D

But SJTW rating alone usually doesn't indicate flexibility when it's (very) cold out since it's PVC, unless it's some sort of special blend of secret chinese spices

For comparison, the SJEOW made out of TPE is rated -70C to 105C but cost 2x+ as much
