    SOOW portable cord

    I've got quite a bit of this stuff ranging in size from 12awg 4 wire up to 2awg 6 wire. Mostly in shorter lengths around 5 - 12 feet but I do have some lengths that are 40' +. The jacketing and filler in these is quite heavy but then again stripping it with a razor knife is quite quick. Anyone with experience scrapping this stuff?

    I know it's really expensive stuff new but I'm not sure selling them vs scrapping them is worth the time effort to be posting these on sale sites.

    Thanks.

    do you know any farmers?

    sometimes they use it for extension cords.

    Have you checked other yards for pricing? 73, Mike
