Anyone got a clue what this is worth? I've got 130 feet of 4 conductor SO cord, it says #1 0 on it (I think think thats 1/0 not ten). It also says "P-116 MSHA" on it. Googling a bit I found something that says this: P-116 MSHA, 150 A, a #1/0 4 conductor type G, 600V – 2000V, 90° C So I guess its rated at 150 amps. I bought it 10 years ago at an auction. I've been using it as a heavy extension cord. Its got a dryer plug on one end and two 120 volt receptacles on the other. Someone posted on craigslist looking for heavy cord and I don't know what to ask for it...

A 4 conductor 1/0 cord would be over 1.5 inches in diameter, a 10awg 4 conductor SO cord would be about 3/4 inch in diameter. What diameter is yours? If its a 10 AWG cord it would cost about $1.75 per ft new. If it's 1/0 is in the $15-17 per ft range new.

If it's got a dryer plug on it, it's PROBABLY not 1/0 gauge wire. That wire is about 1/3" thick, I'm not sure the lugs on a dryer plug would accept wire that thick.
