By Bill Tyrrell from Half Moon Bay, California on February 24, 2015
I'm a bit confused. I'm interested in your extension cord product Code: PC83EXT25 for use with my welder and other 220 volt power equipment. but the electrical couplers don't make sense to me. 8 gauge wire will support up to 50 amps of current but the extension cord ends as manufactured on this product look like they are only compatible with 15 or 20 amp 110 volt receptacles and not.30 tp 50 amp 220 volt receptacles. Can you shed any light on this quandary for me?

Thank you,

Bill
By Customer Service on February 25, 2015

Answer:
The Direct Wire Extension Cord - 230 Volt , 25' or 50' 8/3 is constructed of 3 conductor #8 power cable with a NEMA 6-50p plug on one end and a 6-50r receptacle on the other end. NEMA 6-50 plugs and receptacles are rated at 50 Amps and have a configuration similar to a standard NEMA 5-15 which is the standard 120 volt 15 amps style. The 6-50 however is considerably larger.

I would like to use this cord to connect to a dryer outlet. Only 230v power I have right now. Do you have an adapter that would do that?
By Customer Service on July 1, 2013

Answer:

I'm considering buying a Miller Spectrum 375 X-TREME Plasma Cutter w/XT30 Torch 907529 from you guys. If I do, need a 25' or 50' extension cord to connect to the 240 volt source. Would this cord do the job? Also, what air filter do you recommend I put on my air compressor.

Tim
By Customer Service on October 25, 2013

Answer:
The Direct Wire Extension Cord - 230 Volt , 25' or 50' 8/3 would be a good choice for use with the Miller Spectrum 375 xtreme.. The Miller Plasma In-line Air Filter Kit 228926 will work fine with the 375 x treme.. If you are located in a very hot humid part of the country then you want to consider the Thermal Dynamics Plasma 2 Stage Air Filter Kit 9-9387 or the Miller Plasma RTI Filter/Air Dryer 300491

I think I know the answer due to the brand of the cord but I was interested in buying the Miller 211 with the $400 rebate offer and I was curious if this cord qualified for the rebate. If not is there anything that I could buy as far as welder extension cords that would qualify. Thanks for your time.

By Customer Service on January 15, 2013

Answer:
The Direct Wire Extension Cord - 230 Volt , 25' or 50' 8/3 is made in USA.

By Mike B from Houston, TX on August 3, 2014
My question is somewhat generic. Why are all the 230v welders that I have seen, use the 2pole 3wire plugs and not the 3pole 4wire plug? Wouldn't using a NEUTRAL wire in the circuit be preferable to using the GROUND wire as the neutral? I realize they both end up at the same place, but there must be a reason the neutral wire is used for major appliances.

Thanks

Great product at a great price
March 26, 2014
My garage is 20 feet deep with the outlet for my welder on the back wall. I bought 2 of the 25 foot cords rather than one 50 foot one. That way I can use my Mig in the shop with no cord, on the apron in front with a single cord, or out in the driveway with both cords. The cord is heavy and it is much easier to handle in two pieces than as a single piece. The lights let me know I have power to the cord. The welder does not lose anything by being 50 feet away from the power source. I would recommend this set up to any one who needs to be away from the wall outlet when welding.
Pros:
Good heavy cord. Loop on male end makes it easy to remove from the socket.
Cons:
The cord may be too heavy for someone only wanting 30 amps. This one is stiff because of the wire gauge for 50 amps.

Heavy-duty cord does the job... with lights!
August 8, 2013
The cable does what it is supposed to, and is heavy enough to handle my welding needs. The pull-out handle on the wall plug is fantastic; I'm not sure why someone hadn't thought of that earlier! Angry orange LEDs in both ends are helpful for identifying power-on, and I find they encourage unplugging or switching off the breaker when not in use; probably good practice anyway. Only negative is a less-than-premium insulating casing that doesn't coil as well as it might. Not a huge problem in light of the excellent price, but worth noting, and the only reason I didn't give this 5 Stars.
Pros:
LEDs indicate power Pull-out handle on male end

Great Heavy Duty Extension Cord!!
July 30, 2013
The headline says it all. What more can I say about this extension cord. I used it last night for my welding machine and the machine acted like it was plugged into the wall socket and not running through 50' of cord. It didn't even miss the 50' of electrical resistance that the electricity went through to get to the machine. Absolutely AMAZING!!!!

Direct Wire Extension Cord - 230 Volt , 25' or 50' 8/3
May 23, 2013
The 25' length I purchased is perfect for my shop. I can now use my welders and plasma cutter anywhere in the shop or even outside. For and 8 gauge cord, it is surprisingly flexible. However, if your usual need is for 25’ and only occasionally need 50’, I would suggest buying two 25’ lengths to make handling easier. Cyberweld's price with free shipping was the lowest I could find on the internet and about $30 less than I could find locally. Cyberweld's shipping was very fast.
Pros:
I really like the power on indicators in the moulded ends and the bale handle on the male end that makes it easier to unplug.

Let's be flexibility now...

I use it to extend the use of my 220V MIG welder to the other side of the garage. I expected such a heavy-gauge cord to be stiff and rather unwieldy, but it is very flexible and easy to manipulate. It easily carries the electrical load of the welder. Now I wish I had bought the 50-foot cord! (Hmmm...perhaps I will. Then I'd have 25, 50, and 75 foot cords!)
Pros:
Despite being 8 gauge wire and almost 3/4" in diameter, the cord is very flexible and easy to coil. The connector pins have just the right tension in them so they're easy to plug and unplug, but they still hold securely. The "bail" on the male connector is a plus for unplugging the cord from the wall.
Cons:
Too short. Shoulda bought the 50 foot cord!

This cord works great for my Miller 180 machine, it's flexible and easy to roll out. Sure beats making my own home made cord.
Pros:
Heavy gauge, flexible, light up connectors, pull tab for wall connector
Cons:
A little expensive, but well worth it

Heavier and thicker than I had anticipated, and the plug end has a handle. A very nice design overall.

I bought the 50' cord. Cord is nicely made and I like the lighted ends. Works great for my Miller 252 and my Hypotherm Powermax 45.
Pros:
Lighted ends Handle on plug makes it easy to unplug
Cons:
Even though this is the cheapest I found, $138 does seam like alot to pay for an extension cord.

Seems to be of good quality materials, I was looking to make my own but the wire alone was going to cost more than what I paid for this cord, also get the molded on plug ends.
Pros:
Flexibilty, molded on ends that are lighted. Plus the free shipping!!!!!

8/3 50' Extension

Anyone can sell a shelf item. That these folks did so right after hurricane Sandy speaks volumes about the company's commitment to customer service. The cord is good quality, though like any flexible rubber product, a little care to avoid high abrasion environments will yield years of service.
Pros:
Heavy duty. Carries the load.
Cons:
A bit on the soft side.

Welder extension cord
September 9, 2012
I bought this extension cord on the recommendation of weldor on a welding forum. I use it to extend the reach of my 220 volt 225 amp arc welder in my shop. It carries the full current as advertised. I am impressed with the workmanship of the molded cable with lighted neon indicators on both ends. I am completely satisfied and definately recommend this product.
Pros:
Price, No shipping fee, Workmanship and design.
