Back to Questions

Does the extension cord come with the blower?

An extension cord is not included with the 120VAC yard tool products. Outdoor-rated extension cords of various lengths and sizes are available through your local hardware or home center retailer. Refer to the product operator's manual for appropriate extension cord length and size recommendations.

Back to Questions

What type of extension cord should I use for my blower?

Extension cord: Ensure that your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw. An undersized extension cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating.

See your operator's manual for the proper gauge and length of extension cord.

To reduce the risk of disconnection of the extension cord during use, connect the extension cord to the machine as illustrated in the Operation section of your Operator's Manual or our Interactive Product Manuals.
