    No, but our cords are preconnected to the on-board generator. (We don't always use the saws when we use the cords, but we always use the generator when we use the cords. )

    Are saws are not pre-connected but we did modify them by removing the original power cord and installed a 30' power cord to it to eliminate the need for an extension cord. Power from the truck comes in the form of 2-200' cord reels with power boxes fed from a 25k gen.

    We also run a milwaukee cordless to get us going during set-up

    We use the DeWalt 24volt battery saws so no need for cords.

    As stated above we start off with a cordless, than switch to corded if need be. Probaly don't need to mention but of course we have a spare battery for the cordless if we need extra run time. It also comes in handy if we put both into service at the same time. We currently only carry 2 saws on the first due engine, however if we need to open we get a 2nd engine and a heavy rescue, so we end up with 5 saws. 4 of the saws are corded, none of them are pre-connected.

    Not preconnected, but we replaced the standard plugs with twist-lock's and our cords are on reels so its real easy to hook up and pull what you need.
