How long extension cord for jack hammer
I bought a used Bosch Brute jack hammer to help me put in post holes for a fence. I have lots and lots of rocks. The area I need to use it is 250 feet from my closest exterior outlet. I have a bunch of 10 gauge extension cords from when I built my house. Plenty to get to the fence location and then some. The best info I can find indicates the jack hammer takes 15 amps. All of my electrical outlets are 12 gauge wire with 20 amp breakers. Is there too much voltage drop to use the extension cords. I also have a 3500 watt honda generator that I have never used but if the extension cord thing won't work I'll have to fire it up for the first time.
Off topic but I wanted to give everybody here that helped me with my house wiring questions a few years a big thank you. I built and wired the house myself. My family has been living in the house for over a year now and thinks it's much better than the mobile home we were living in.
