Have a jugs pitching machine being set up outdoors approx. 200' from 110 outlet. It is run by a 90 volt motor(s). Can I use an extension cord or cords to safely run unit. If so what size gauge?

@Drew42,
Drew, my 1st q: Is the motor[s] ac or dec
Gage would 'pend om current reqmt, amps

But you're pushin' ur luck runnin' a 90-v motor from a 120-v source. However, what the hell, try it. Any xten cords you got lyin' around. Still. after it's ben runnin' for a while, go feel the cords. Repl hot'n's w/ bigger'n's !!
