Extension Lead – 10,20,30,50,60m

Extension Lead – 10,20,30,50,60m

The voltage supply to power tools is critical to avoid burnouts. These of some of the root Causes

  • Extension leads that are too short or too thin CAUSE excessive heat build-up which puts more current through the winding and causes them to heat even further.
  • Incorrectly calibrated Generators cause too little current to reach the tool, causing burnout.
  • Spiderweb connections are enemy number 1   (too many leads and too many power tools connected on one circuit) VERY common on building sites.

                        Always use Heavy Duty leads on industrial power tools

Always use one lead only. (do not join leads). Never use leads that are too long as they can heat up and burn out what it is powering up. Never use thin household leads. Minimum 2.5mm2 must be used with our power tools cut or damaged leads are charged at the full replacement cost R600.00 (and you get to keep the lead). We cannot repair or join leads as this does not pass safety regulations. It is for this reason that we condemn the lead and you need to pay for the damage. Never used a coiled lead , this creates magnetic induction which creates heat and electrical resistance, resulting in voltage drop which will cause power tools to burn out. Plug damage = R35 janus coupler damage= R60
