Buy the Best Extension Cord for your Electric Mower — 3 Comments

  1. Our B&D corded lawn mower has quietly been shorting out it seems so that now the extension cord has “melted” inside the socket! Is it worth the $80 repair plus the cost of a new cord?!! Or should we get a cordless variety but the replacement batteries are $150 when they eventually wear out! We only have a small yard. Such a difficult decision. Love your website, by the way!!

    • Which mower do you have? What size cord were you using? Review my article on extension cords (this page) and the extension cord safety PDF. The one thing not covered in those 2 resources is the size of your outlet. Make sure it is a 20 amp outlet. From what you describe it sounds like you used a too small gauge of cord for the amps the mower used. If you are used to a corded mower then I would stick with the cord but make sure you are using an adequate size. This is the cheapest 12 gauge cord of 100 ft on Amazon.

  2. I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A number of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?
