I got it from T&R Electric in South Dakota about 15 years ago. I drove there and picked it up myself. I understand that they no longer will sell to amateurs.  :(

Someone on the TCML posted an offer last week for a free pole transformer in the Milwaukee area if you are anywhere near there. I also see them for sale on E-Bay if you can afford the shipping cost or you can pick it up yourself if the driving distance is reasonable.

If you post a request on TCML for a pole transformer, quite often a member has one lying around unused and is happy to let it go.

That's huge! Must weigh quite a bit?

It weighs about 300 pounds. This is actually one of the smaller pole transformers at "only" 10 KVA. I have seen some 5 KVA ones and even saw a 3 KVA one once but it was very old.

Ok thanks, I was already hooked up to that, just did not know what it was called. Lot's of good reading.
