All Big Brutes are built with a generous 10m long power cable.
However, sometimes your plugs just aren’t in the right place, so you’d naturally just reach for your existing extension lead.
Just watch out though – remember the 230V Big Brute can pull 16A of current.
Most extension leads use thinner core cables, usually 1.5mm2 area.
This is usually fine for domestic appliances that don’t pull as much current but with a Big Brute, the larger current can cause heating in domestic extension leads. This can result in them melting or posing a fire risk.
Our official Big Brute extension leads come in 10m, 20m, 30m or even 50m lengths.
And, like the Big Brute’s power cable, are made from cables with a larger core diameter (2.52mm area, or even 6mm2 area for the longer ones.
This reduces the heating effect of the larger current, reducing the risk of overheating or fire.
So if you do need an extension lead, always use an official Big Brute extension lead, and always uncoil it fully before use.
