[Home Depot] Ridgid 15A and 30A 25 Ft. Heavy Duty Extension (Almost 80% off!)

Hi All!

Couldn't grab a picture because I was in a hurry this morning but I saw the following on sale:

- 25 Ft (7.62M) 15 Amp Heavy Duty Ridgid Extension down to ~18$ from ~65$ ... AWG 14
https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.25-f ... 38928.html

- 25 Ft (7.62M) 30 Amp Heavy Duty Ridgid Extension down to ~32$ from ~165$ ... AWG 10
https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.25-f ... 37856.html

Pricing is not exact since I do not remember exactly but it's pretty much near what I wrote above.

HD in Vaudreuil had 2 of each on the tablet.

The 15 AMP has 3 oulets between the middle and the end of the extension.

Did you happen to purchase the 30A cord? IF so, what was the jacket material?

I didn't not buy it... Was going to buy eletrical boxes.

It looked like vinyl/plastic/rubber.

Yes. Do not exceed 15A / 1800 Watt.

Confirmed tonight at Park Royal - West Vancouver. Great deal! I picked up 2 x multi extension cord.

They didn't scan correctly, so I had to get them adjusted. The cashier was clueless and wouldn't do SCOP which should have saved another $10 (bringing one of them down to $7 from $70!).

Some electronics need higher quality extension cords that can carry the correct load of volts/amps to not damage the equipment. Things like power washer.

I have a couple of contractor grade extension cords. I use them to run power out to my miter and table saws - saves from overheating in the supply lines and reduces breakers tripping. The cords are very heavy and their jackets are typically very flexible - good in all season.

I note that Canadian Tire has this one on sale: NOMA Contractor Grade Extension Cord, 14-gauge. $23.99 for a 25' cord is a decent deal - although the OP's deal is better for sure and has the additional feature of 3 outlets spaced every 8 feet (which I kind of like).

I upvoted this thread - it's a good find.

Unless it has a logic board or some kind of control panel, a power washer is electric, but not an electronic item.

How do these 12 guage extension cords fair? It doesn't have the extra outlets like the Rigid, but price-wise it seems to be pretty good since it's 12 gauge instead of 14 for the Rigid. Also, no searching around (and free shipping if you're Amazon Prime or order over $35).

AmazonBasics 12/3 SJTW Heavy-Duty Lighted Extension Cord - 25 Feet (Orange) is currently $18.45
AmazonBasics 12/3 SJTW Heavy-Duty Lighted Extension Cord - 50 Feet (Orange) is currently $29.61

Ridgid says -50°C to +80°C or something similar... don't know about the Amazon one but it certainly look similar. Ridgid has lifetime warranty...

EDIT: Amazon is AWG 12 while Ridgid is AWG 14. If you are using 15A over > 50 FT, I recommend 12 which is better. With 25 FT, doesn't really change anything but it help.

If given the choice and everything else being equal, ALWAYS go for the thicker gauge cable so in this case 12 vs 14. Lifetime warranties have a limited value with extension cords. I find that the plugs are usually the issue and I just replace the plug with an industrial grade one for $7 rather than going to replace the whole thing and needing to find the receipt and heading down to the service depot. The Rigid one is better for one reason however, it's got 3 plugs that are spaced out along the cord so for those applications when you need it, it really comes in handy but if you don't then it's just another thing that gets caught when you put the cord away.

definitely YMMV. There was one left in Fredericton priced at $69.97 with a yellow clearance tag but it did not ring up at the lower price and the manager wouldn't match it...

I have a bunch of 50' triple tap 12/3 cables rated for low temperatures with lit ends. Found them pretty useful except now 2 of the 3 plugs are too loose.

If I were to buy again, I'd probably get the same but mostly 25' or 33' since it's such a hassle winding them up all the time.

Bought them at IHL Canada when they were on sale.

Might check out the 15A RIDGID since it's so cheap.
