hmmm... well, (egg on my face).  I was looking at the CS6365 connector, which shows #8 wire as the largest for it.  I forgot I should have been looking at the CS6365C version, which does show it accommodates #6 wire.
I use these and have not had trouble with #4 wire.

Thank you. 

Haven't seen too much of Eaton products in the things I've worked with.  Any discernible quality differences between Eaton and Hubbell?  I've always been a Hubbell person, but would not discount another manufacture if quality is on par.

Most of my other cabling infrastructure is Hubbell - these particular Cooper plugs are really nice.  They assemble pretty easily, and are as robust as anything else I have.   The spec sheet on these says #6 wire as well, so if you prefer Hubbell, I would bet you a pizza #4 is fine in them too.

But, as pendantic as we get about things on here at times, if says #6 it is not listed to be used with #4-even if it fits.

I don't disagree.  Welcome to the world of government (or industry/government, in the case of NEC) regulation - having to choose between a cord that doesn't meet code and has voltage drop concerns that fits easily in the plugs, or wire that's the right size but not officially rated for the legal wire.

Perfect.

As a side note, looks like there is an "*ex" version of the connectors (replacing the "c" at the end).  Not sure what the difference is, but the market literature shows the EX and C will work together.

Hi Bob
They stock the CS6365C where I work and the enclosed sheet (PD1180: http://ecatalog.hubbell-wiring.com/productinformation/CustomerDrawingLibraryAssets/3A/3/PD1180.pdf ) shows in 3 languages that terminal capacity is 8 AWG to 4 AWG.
HTH,
Jeff
