Default 150kw generator new install

Two of us drove 6 hours away to a small town in North Florida to get the site ready for a generator.
Day one, underground installed and crushed stone base and rebar delivered, forms built,
day two, steel tied and inspected, hang ATS, 400amp main, metercan and MDP
Day three, concrete poured. Installed underground into utility transformer and load side into new 30x 40 had hole.
Day four, strip forms, backfill and set generator, drive home and sleep in my own bed.
Not bad for two guys pushing 60

Thanks for your unauthorised advertisement to a bunch of fellow electricians who don't need your service.

It's SEO. Or he thinks that it is. He doesn't realize that Google sees this as spammy, so not only won't it help him... it might go against him.

The last shot in the video should be smoke coming out the exhaust.
Just a suggestion.
Great video. Great job.

I’ll have to remember that.
We have a 225 scheduled for Raiford, it will have a 1000 gallon tank, slab 2’ wider, same 16’ length but load side will be 500 amps. They send the generator with a 600amp breaker and can dial it down to either 480 amps or 540 amps. I don’t know why those random settings, it must be a % of the rating.
