Hey guys, is a 100' (12 Gauge) extension cord sufficient for a 15amp circular saw? I've seen a couple of charts and a few show that it would be okay, but the chart in my circular saw owners manual states that if I need 50' of cord, it would have to be a 12 gauge cord. Also, the owners manual does not give an option for a 100' extension cord when using a 12.1-16.0 amp tool, but it does show that a tool with an amp rating of 7.1-12.0 must use a 10 gauge cord if the cord is going to be a 100' long. Why would the charts have different information? Thanks.
