    Hi forum,

    I have just bought a 240v, 3600w gutter vac but struggling to find an extension lead that can cope with the power output of all 3 motors, what are you guys using? My masterplug cable reel only goes up to a max of 3120w and it is supposed to be "heavy duty".

    Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks

    I made my own from 2.5mm Arctic cable and 16amp connectors. They are safe to use outside and will take the current. Oh, and I have an inline RCD breaker on the extension too.
