Hello Jim. Question:What is the sheathing on the 30 amp 4 prong,25ft. power cord made of? Is similar to the very flexible rubber sheath found on some extension cords or is it made of the not so flexible plastic sheathing found on basic home wiring romex?

Answer
The outer jacketing on the generator power cords are SJTW type.

S: Service Grade
J: 300 Volts or Less
T: Thermoplastic Material
W: Weather Resistant, Sun Resistant & Wet Locations

This is a heavy duty cord but very flexible for a cord this thick.

My generator is 8kW. The manual calls for a "NEMA L14-30" cord, but the specs on this cord say "7500 watt max". Why? Will this cord work?

Answer
The outlet on your generator that you will be plugging into will be 30A with a maximum wattage output capacity of 7500 watts. So, the overall generator output size doesn't matter.

All 30A connections, cords, inlet boxes and switches are rated for a maximum of 7500 watts due to Ohms Law (Amps x Volts = Watts).

30A cord ratings are 30A x 250V = 7500W

30A outlet ratings are 30A x 250V = 7500W

30A switch ratings are 30A x 250V = 7500W

Yes, this cord will work with your 8000 watt generator.

I have 7KW generator at about 35' from the box. Would I be able to connect two cables in order to extend the line without loosing much voltage/ power or risking performance in any way? Is 25' the only length available? Thank you!

Answer
It is not recommended to connect two generator cords together, one length is best.

These cords are available in longer lengths...click link below for models available....

I have a GP7500e generac purchased from EGD - Now looking for power cable. 30 amp Cent. Wire & Cable (25ft) listed without max wattage? Also most other 30 amp cables at 7200 max watt. Does this restrict my 7500 watt genrator in any way?? What other options do I have??

Answer
Yes, the maximum wattage on this model is 7500 watts which matches perfectly with the Generac GP7500E since you are connecting to the 30A outlet which also has a maximum wattage capacity of 7500 watts.

All 30A connections, outlets, cords, inlet boxes and switches have a maximum wattage capacity of 7500 watts due to Ohms Law - Amps x Volts = Watts.

Will the Century Wire & Cable (4-prong 25 ft) generator power cord work with a Briggs & Stratton 8000 watt generator (30471) and Reliance Controls 30 amp power inlet box?

Answer
Yes, this is the perfect cord to work with the 30471 8000 watt generator. Even though the cord and inlet box have a maximum wattage capacity of 7500 watts, you are still connecting to the 30A outlet on the generator which also has the same 7500 watt max output.

The rule of thumb when sizing a generator it so size it to 80% of the running capacity so the unit has the flexibility to handle starting loads without overloading the generator.

An 8kW unit is the perfect size when connecting to 30A equipment.

JIm, I have a Generac xp8000e generator. I want to buy a 25' 4 prong cable but see that they are only rated up to 7500 wats. For the 8000 watt with 10k w surge on the xp8000e, does this matter? If so, which cable should I get.

Answer
You will never realize a full load of 7500 watts at any one time, therefore the Century Wire & Cable model D13011025 or any other power cord rated at 30 amps with the NEMA# L14-30R plug would be more than sufficient for you.

I have generator 7000 watts. Can I use cable 30- Amps?

Answer
A 7000 watt generator normally has a 30A outlet on it which is rated at 7500 watts which is the same as the cord. Just double check the connections in our specs section on the product page.

Hi Jim! We are going to getup a manual transfer switch with an out side box to accept the cord from our portable generator. We want to get everything to handle 50 amp service but will be using a 5000 watt/20amp generator with a twist lock plug (L14-20R) for some time until we can upgrade it to a larger model. Question: How can we 'adapt' a 50amp cord to our L14-20R plug so that we don't have to rewire or replace the cable when we upgrade our generator? Thanks for you help!

You would have to contact a certified electrician for that type of modification to specifically designed equipment. We do not offer recommendations on altering equipment. Sorry.
