Anyone else doing lighting in the 70-80's Era?
Someone covered up the photocells..
those things are museum pieces!!! We love when we get back old transformers...we re furbish them and save them!
Yes they are working, we have been baby sitting this equipment for three years and we are getting ready to upgrade everything. About a dozen of these babies around the property.
Wow, that's all I can say.
Nice tape job! It's holding up well.
Some of the Transformer photocells are covered up with the fabric style electrical tape, how long has it been since you have seen that?
The Key thing here is that those transformers are still working... after ALL that time!
I think that is remarkable don't you? I would send that photo off to Connie Barnes at Nightscaping... they might appreciate it. Who knows, they might offer you a 'trade in incentive' or something to modernize them all to H3O Powercenters.
Have a great day.
The biggest enemy to those old painted steel transformers was moisture. I tried to pull one off an outside wall about a year and a half ago and the case crumbled in my hands.
Homeowner reported that there was kind of a bang and a tripped breaker while they were playing cards one night.
I've seen others that rusted through in the field too. However, I've also encountered some even older than those in near pristine condition, still working, in a shed.
