Maybe for lights,or a box fan. But as per the OP pasted description "...hedge trimmers..." that's a terrible idea. It will both heat up, possibly dangerously, AND it can undervolt the motor and damage it also.

According to the Home Depot page OP linked, 50ft 16 gauge is suitable for 1-13 amps and examples given are Christmas lights, Work lights, Portable fans, and Hedge trimmers. Most hedge trimmers are only 4-6 amps. I have some cheap B&D hedge trimmers that I regularly run off a 100ft 16 gauge cable, for the past decade. The page OP linked also states 1-10 amps for 100ft 16 gauge, and includes the the same examples (Christmas lights, Work lights, Portable fans, and Hedge trimmers). Anyway, should you run a table saw off this? Of course not - however there are many good uses for it. Thanks OP!

EDIT: Also it says 13amp max right on the package so...

For snow blowers a 14 gauge is really recommended. Maybe even 12. My electric snow blower draws 13A max, which would be really testing the limit of a 16 gauge cord.

I'm seeing the initial item for 8.99 as out of stock and not able to ship. Not available in my local store either. Hyper tough ones still available.

TU for reading the package and appropriate links. Many people won't bother. The two things I've generally discovered with extension cords - you almost always need an extra 5 feet, and the temptation to just make do when you need those extra feet is to use the first cord you find.

Plus it does make a difference if it is an intermittent load - like a chop saw, or a continuous like, like a lawn mower or a hedge trimmer, as well as how hot it starts at (I have a sister in central Texas, and I floored her attic in for her one summer - the driveway got insanely hot too). I've almost always made it a habit to purchase a cord rated for the highest continuous draw electrical tool I'll use. You may be more contentious than I am, and play musical extensions - but most of us aren't. Peace

BTW this doesn't even take into account mainly Chinese companies that abuse the UL and ETL listings, I have a cite archived somewhere so it's over five years old admittedly. There is also regulatory shopping (these are ETL), and I've watched in other fields (finance and organic standards) where going with the cheapest certifier almost never ends well in the long run. The sister in Texas is a burn victim, due in part to a non-UL childhood electrical present/sparks/super flammable childrens sleepware so it's made me hyper-vigilant once I had kids.

Those saying 16/3 isn't enough capacity are the same ones who say 8Gb isn't enough computer RAM. IOW, these are fine for 95% of the population.
