Well, some time ago I had to take apart an old eclectic mowere, it had three
core cable attached, though the earth appeared not to be used at all. In a
strimmer it had 2 core.
I guess from the extension lead point of view it depends on how the
protection works at the plug end what you use.
The weird thing is that I've also seen 2 and three core versions of those
connection extenders that have a quick release as well.
As for drop, yes you get one heck of a drop when you start the motor up I
found. If you don't believe it, wire a light bulb across the mower end.
