Quick question, where can I find a pole pig transformer? I see some just lying around in fenced off transformer sites near where I live, but they are hard to come by cheaply on the market.
Ah well.They don't scrap them any more, or atleast no where I live. I have electric utility depot near my house, stopped in there to ask the same question. They said they send the bad ones back to where they're made to be reconditioned. Reconditioning is cheaper than building one from scratch.
A few years ago I notice that round and about in rural Scotland we now have quite a few of the round pole pig type transformers.We generally don't have pole pigs here, and while there are occasional transformers mounted on poles they are rectangular and not round
