Welcome aboard @allpr0h!

Looks like they are lightning arresters to me.

The way the wires go around them, I'd say insulator.

I don't know the answer, but I suspect that one side is bigger than the other due to the different amount of mechanical load it has to take. It maybe supporting conductors on a longer span the previous and therefore need to be heftier.

Look more like arresters than insulators to me.

EGLAs, externally gapped line arrester, they are popular everywhere except most of north america.

somewhere you shouldn't be playing !


At first I thought they where insulator strings,
But closer look rules that out
Lightning arrestors seem like a reasonable answer.

Ahh, that's cool.

I think the big stuff is fascinating myself.

I've done a little line work but would have always liked to do some sub station construction.
