SOOW Portable Cords and Wire Harnessing

soow cord for wire harness

Wire & Cable To Go would like to give a BIG THANKS to our friend & customer Jason down in Central Illinois who sent in the above photos of his wire harness.

Jason, a great farmer in his community and an expert in agricultural operations, needed to replace a malfunctioning wiring harness on his planter and ordered our 16/30 SOOW Portable Cord cut to length at 50′. This gives him control of hydraulic flow valves that operate cylinders to raise, lower, and fold the planter on the farm.

Keep up the good work, Jason! We appreciate all that you do!

Your pal,

If so, please send them to the email address below with a short blurb on how you used the wire. We would be thrilled to share it with our community!

SOOW Portable Cord for Portable Generators


Are you looking for a flexible portable cord for your generator?

Many of our customers reach out to us wondering what type of portable cord is best for their new generator at home.  We tell them it depends on the specs of the application, how many amps are required for the generator, and that Wire & Cable To Go has several different options to choose from!

Our most popular portable cord for generators is our line of SOOW portable cords.  These flexible rubber cords which are good for 600 volts are cut to the exact length you need for your generator.  The most popular sizes for home generators are our 6/4 SOOW, 8/4 SOOW & 10/4 SOOW portables Cords.   These all have a total of 4 conductors.

Another popular portable cord used on heavy duty generators is our  Type W Portable Cord.  These multi-conductor portable cords are flexible, durable &  can handle 2000v applications.

Here is what our friendly customer, Jack, had to say about the 10/4 SOOW portable cord he purchased for his 3500 Watt Generator (see photo above).

The generator puts out 3500 watts and is wired through a transfer switch into my house. It operates my 220v artesian well pump as well as a refrigerator,freezer and four house circuits for lamps,tv and accessories. We are quite comfortable during power outages which are common around here!

Solar Panels and THHN/THWN


Wire & Cable To Go continues to help customers and their solar energy projects.

We would like to give our friend Rick a BIG THANKS for using our 1/0 THHN/THWN for his inverter on his solar panel project.  The panel is now up and running using 10.4 AC KW.  We shipped out his order the same day it was placed, making the exact cuts he requested, and he received the cable the very next day.

Our Belden Equivalents are one of Wire & Cable To Go most popular products.  Here is what one of our favorite customer’s Jason had to say about the quality of these cables:

The C2525A 20/3 cable is a great alternative to the expensive Belden 8772 instrumentation cable, and costs 70% less.  We’ve tested these two cables side-by-side in our environmental chamber, and the performance and durability characteristics were identical.  We’ve been using it for years with great success connecting life-safety equipment in harsh environments of the food industry and other manufacturing facilities.  Very pleased with this cable. also has first-class customer service, very short lead times, and free shipping on large orders most of the  time.”

Welding Cable & Wind Turbines

Welding Cable for Wind Turbine

Thank you to our customer Ralph who recently purchased our #6 AWG Welding Cable Class K in both black and red for a wind turbine project he is working on.  Here is what Ralph told us about his welding usage:

I’m using the wire I purchased for a couple wind turbine projects.  I’m attaching pictures of one project, the other will be installed at another location at a later date.  The #6 welding cable from the positive terminal of the alternator runs down inside the pipe mast.  The mast serves as the ground.  Both the negative and the positive wires exit or attach at base below ground level and then into a circuit breaker which is connected to a 12 volt battery bank.”
